Apple is calling the iPad a “third category” between phones and laptops. I am increasingly convinced that this is just to make it palatable to you while everything shifts to New World ideology over the next 10-20 years.
I’d bet on Steven being right about the benefits of New World computing, despite the occasional kicking and screaming from geeks like us. It’s the next logical step from why we all use Macs instead of Windows PCs — at least, why I do (warning: very old).
But I still prefer a manual transmission.
