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.

Context is important, there was no context here. Sorry, I'm with the masses - Thom messed up. What Thom did is the same as this:

"The king was in my home town today. He is an idiot. John is still my friend, no matter what."

Who is the idiot? John or the king? Sentences that rely on inside knowledge are unhelpful. Sentences that don't convey enough information are open to misinterpretation.

As another person said miles down a thread, add 3 words:

This tweet from Tom Warren about tablets multitasking made me smile.


Let's also deflate the argument about links - I read the front page news in an RSS feed. There are no links in the body of the RSS feed text, so your argument, and Thom's, is pretty much moot. No excuses, terse is terse. And misleading is misleading no matter how much Thom thinks we should just understand what is in his head. As someone else mentioned, poor journalism shines through on this site recently. No neutral POV or reporting, no objectivity, and falling in to personal Blog territory. If there was another site that dealt with the OS topics in detail, I'd be off here for good. I've been trying to help by submitting as many stories as I can recently (and 3 or so have been featured), but it's like pissing in the wind sometimes.
