Apple I had written an entire article on the debate about whether or not the iPad is a pure consumption device, but realised I could summarise the entire debate into a single sentence: it's the difference between 'suitable' and 'ideal'. You can ride a unicycle from Amsterdam to Paris, but that doesn't mean it's better than just taking the car or the Thalys.

It’s okay, I understand what Turing Complete actually means, I was just approaching the matter from a very high, philosophical level.

If in the future the devices that you use cannot do anything without being slaves to another device (desktop computer, App Store, Apple), then is that an indication that we’ve gone backwards, or forwards?
