Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

So I'm irrational because I happened to grok the meaning right away and you didn't? You blame your lack of comprehension on the writing skills of a language arts major with a master's degree, who has been writing in English (his second language to my knowledge) for many years, and is far better at it than me and many other native English speakers.

Face it, you misunderstood the article's segue and are scrambling to blame someone else for what, quite honestly, doesn't even matter. No one cares that you didn't catch the meaning right off, except perhaps you.

But just in case you need it for future reference, here is a breakdown of the article flow in layman's terms, with my explanation in braces:

This tweet from Tom Warren {regarding proper multitasking on a tablet} made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. {the Amiga could multitask in 1985} Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - {here's the segue} by this piece of news. {about multi-user support on Android}

I find it really sad that I had to do that, but I hope it helps you in your future attempts at reading.
