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.

Good grief Thom. Here is how I (and probably many others) read the article (and most articles):

1) read the summary before clicking on the links.
2) click on the links (I didn't do this this time, I headed to the comments).
3) read the comments.

I didn't do #2 this time because the article was screwed up. Without clicking on the links you are saying that Amiga had multi-user support in 1985.

The summary should at least summarize the intent of the title, which it doesn't. The reason for that is that you are trying to be sarcastic/belittle things rather than write a coherent article, or at least that is how it comes across.

I am no writer but...

Just had to add 3 words and the summary is clear.
