Yadda, yadda, yadda!
Yup, a tablet is more personal computer than a laptop or desktop or underdesk computer.Even more personal computer is a handheld computer which some people mistakenly call smartphone (just because one of it's least used features is phone calling).I suppose the ultimately personal computer is a wearable computer, e.g. wrist computer.

  I am trying iCloud at the moment at my summer house in the middle of nowhere over a lousy 3G network (download speed 1,5 M, upload 1,5 M) and Pages is incredibly fast! Can't wait to get back home to try it over proper internet connection.   I'm using 15" MacBook Pro (2,6 GHz Core i7, 16 GB RAM).

The code existed already anyway.   I do use DB, yet I would like to have the functionality from Apple. I have been using Macs for 24 yeras (and computers for 42 years). When I was younger and more adventurous I loaded my Mac full of all kind of useful (and useless) functionality from any vendor....
@ hagar.  Fully agree. The mystery is why Apple abandoned iDisk functionality. It had almost everything I expect from a cloud system and (mostly) implemented in a neat way. DB is nice, too, but I still miss iDisk.
Wow, PowerPoint slides of unique design! That's truly innovative - how didn't I come to think of using PP.
