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.

First of all multi-user for a phone is stupid, why would anyone share a phone? Only when your kid wants to play a game.

On a tablet it makes more sense, but there's no need to have apps of the previous user to keep running. Just save the settings and I'd be happy.

I have an iPad, which my wife, son and sometimes other people use. I don't want them to mess up my stuff, they may need other apps and not apps I use, put them in another order.

Personally I don't even need/want authentication. If I didn't trust my family members they wouldn't get my iPad anyway. A tablet is for quick and easy use, not for time consuming login systems (a few seconds is already an annoyance).

My phone had a passcode, my tablet hasn't.
