Been using tablets since the days of Windows 3.11 for Pen Computing, the Apple Newton. The modern Surface pro tablets try to mimic the hardware and polish of modern iPads, but not the post-PC user experience. Microsoft recently patted itself on the back for shipping a "metro UI" file manager for their tablet. Uh, that's not a step forward.

The fire phones "gimmicks" are part of an orchestrated strategy for amazon. 1. Firefly: its purpose is obvious, and exactly what Amazon needs.

I'm surprised no one used the but but but user-agent meme. 
Reverse is true for me: I use the Mac for work, and iPad for web surfing, shopping, reading ebooks, listening to music, playback of itunes media, streaming Netflix, journal writing, and playing iOS games.
