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.

This completely curtails its functionality as a post-PC device, because ding ding ding you STILL need a PC to make it all work!


I must say I disagree. Contrary to desktops, you don't have oodles of diskspace on a Post PC device. Being able to subscribe on podcasts - then forgetting about them - and have your disk consequentially filled with podcasts that you haven't listened to yet - or have forgotten about entirely - doesn't sound like a very attractive idea to me.

It makes much more sense not to subscribe them in the first place, and just get them when you want to listen to them. This way you have better control on what the storage on your post pc device gets used for.
