Editorial Last week, Apple again repeated its claim that the iPhone and iPod Touch are capable of filling the netbook niche. They also claimed that netbooks can barely be called personal computers. Both of these statements are complete and utter nonsense, but instead of writing down some high-level definition of what a netbook is, I decided to simply write down all the things I do with my netbook that the iPhone/iPod Touch cannot do to make the difference between the two that much more tangible.

Netbooks are being trumped and defined by what they do, more than what their form factor is.

Only by companies which missed the boat and are casting about for something... anything... in their extant offerings that they can pretend is really a netbook until they can get their real netbook onto the market.
