I told you, I told you, I told you guys. iPhone OS and MacOS are eventually going to merge. With iWork they've begun building in large-screen computing capabilities on iPhone OS. Shit, they even have a keyboard dock for home desktop use. It's happening sooner than I thought. I wonder how long before Adobe starts porting its large-screen apps to iPad? The tipping point is when MS ports Office to iPad.
"Need a new one?" is a question that needs to be asked at Microsoft's stockholders meeting in relation to the CEO position.
Worthless analysts. Its Bing, it's not Windows Bing. Consumers are smart enough to know that Mac is being touted over Windows not Bing. These analysts are mentally lazy wankers.
It's called misdirection, folks. Apple also files a lot of BS patents otherwise their competitors would easily guess which way they're heading.

Or how many brands of MP3 players there were before iPod consolidated. It'll be the same thing with tablets. I would be surprised if any of these three are still in the market in couple of years.

Hear, hear! Anecdotal data is the most common and most worthless form of evidence you can find online. Someone should come up with a way to flag anecdotal evidence so we can all just skip any posting that relies on such worthless blather to support its main argument.
It's the easiest setup experience I've had for a router. Had a Linksys and DLInk in the past. Both were a bear to setup. Published comparison reviews confirm this.
Sometimes, the seemingly simplest minor improvements can trigger massive changes in human behavior. Perhaps the mobile device IS your laptop. But you are assuming your usage pattern represents most people. It actually doesn't. Most people you see out in the streets don't walk around with their laptops in tow, what they do carry around all the time are their phones. So just because the laptop as the mobile device works well enough for you doesn't mean that the 'desktop...
