The shape of things not to come
: Mark my words: The tablet will not take over the PC world. Read the NY Times today (can’t get to the link right now but Gizmodo has it) and you’ll find a solution looking for a problem. It’s not a good way to read a newspaper; paper is (and the newspaper industry learned that the hard way, spending a fortune in “labs”). It’s not a good way to create information. It will have a limited audience for whom it works well. Limited.
All the attention it is getting is about (a) Microsoft marketing and its hope to build a new business line and (b) a hunger for new gadgets that has not been sated in too long.
