So in 2017 almost half of all tablets will be Android? 3.x+? Not 4.x+? Something is fishy here. In other words, if it is 50% Android, 90% of those could be "crapblets".
Assuming Apple continues its momentum, of course.
Well, by 2015 hopefully I can ditch my Xbox360, because I'm never going back to Windows, even for games. (Thank goodness for Xbox360 though, especially the newer more reliable ones) (But no Xbox720 for me unless there's some compelling content ~ eg. Assasin's Creed 2 is superb, I'm learning tons about Florence)
Windows 8? It took me 1 hour just to bl**dy run 3DMark 11 on my colleague's PC with Windows 7. I had to download 5 different things just to run a ~benchmark program~ ... That's how FUBAR Windows is. Let alone the nonsense that is Office, I mean, we love to hate it, but really, let's admit it, it's bloated garbage that is not standards-based and not interoperable to any reasonable degree. iWork at least is a pleasure to use, despite being proprietary. I'd like to conduct a course on web page mockups using Keynote, I found it much more pleasurable compared to Photoshop.
So here's the punchline: Windows and PCs are so irreparably broken that the iPad will simply dominate PCs. PCs won't go away, but iPad will be a de facto "non-PC" device ("post-PC" device). My mum just got her hand-me-down iPad and already she's downloading Skype and using it, emailing, playing games, viewing websites, well, you know the rest. She's a good MacBook user but the thing she likes best is no more heat (they live on the equator) like the MacBook fan running constantly...
