PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless An article at The Next Web points out that the latest marketshare numbers put Apple at the top of "PC" makers, and that some PC makers that don't have any tablet momentum are calling foul. It's "controversial" to count tablets as PCs, they say. The article points out various justifications for not categorizing tablets as personal computers, and then shoots them down. I must say, I find the argument compelling.

Tablet PCs are PC, yes, but the iPad is a terminal that connects to the cloud.
...
The iPad doesn't do computing locally...



I'm not sure what it's doing when it's in "Airplane Mode" then, must be a terminal for the clouds outside the window as it sure as hell can't reach the ones in data centres...
