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?

An iPod Touch is just an iPhone with no phone, and the iPad is a super-sized iPod (sometimes with phone functionality put back in). Apple fans tend to shout "it's an appliance!!!" every time someone points out that the platform is locked down and closed, and they are right. It is, however, marketed as a computer.
