Great piece by the Macalope on the absolute asshattery from Katherine Noyes on the iPad, iPad2 and tablets in general. It basically boils down to her inability to find a use case for herself and she runs with it saying tablets, and especially the iPad, are nothing more than a fad. As much as I like the iPad for what it can do, I also can’t find a reason to actually own one. That doesn’t mean however that I don’t understand why people are buying iPads in droves, it just means it isn’t a fit for me. Unlike netbooks, which I claimed to be on their way out in 2009, I think tablets are here to stay.
