In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

I understand what you are trying to say but you obviously don't own an iPad or you would realize that you CAN create things on them. The main limitation right now isn't Apple but companies/programmers that haven't thought outside the box.

Note: I do create documents and spreadsheets on mine. MOST people do NOT created complicated documents or spreadsheets. Most of the ones that are created use maybe 2% of the power of those programs. So ... an iPad can create the same time of documents/spreadsheets as most people create.

You can also create quite a few other things with iPads. Yes you can and I do consume information/videos/etc, but honestly no more than I do on my home computer.

I do use my iPad VERY differently than my iPhone. They are two completely different devices for me. For me my iPad might be a "low end" computer but it is all I need 90% of the time. So for me, it is a computer and not a big iPhone or iPod Touch.

Argument fail. Yes, most people use only 10% of complicated software's functionality - but it's always a different 10%. On top of that, have fun exchanging documents with an iPad.

As an aside:

They really need to make a sequel to zoolander with them breaking open an iPad to find the files.
