How the Tablet Made an Ass of the PC

John Kirk for Tech.pinions

If you compare an Elephant (PC) to an Ass (Tablet), there is no question that the Elephant (PC) is superior. But that’s missing the point entirely. Because if you compare the task at hand – say, riding into town, or sending an email – to the available tools, then the lowly Ass (Tablet) kicks the Elephant’s (PC’s) keister every time.

Amen. The only point I’d add is that where elephants and asses are more or less genetically stuck, tablets are evolving quickly towards elephant status. Remember, we’re only a few years into this journey.
