Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

"Well, this is not a 'real' computer in the traditional sense. It does not replace a 'traditional' PC anymore than a bicycle replaces a car (although it CAN for some people. That's not what it is designed for."

Tell that to people like my father in his late fifties, who considers the iPad to be his Personal Computer. Tell that to whomever it was that wrote Tim Cook's speech littered with references to the post-PC era. And really, in the analogy you chose, this is more akin to trying to replace a car with a motorcycle that has had the engine disabled. You get the appearance of something fast and with advantages that a car does not have--only it has been artificially prevented from being true competition to the car.

Gotta remember that analogy for later use. It's brilliant ! ;)
