I hate to start calling people out, but there’s so much shoddy Apple writing goin on these days that sometimes you have to call em like you see em. In an absurd piece published by Silicon Ally Insider, Dan Frommer argues that Apple needs to come out with a tablet, yet gives no convincing explanation as to why.
What will we use it for? Everything we use the iPhone for, except phone calls. And many things we use our computer for, except everywhere. This includes: Listening to music, watching videos, surfing the Web, reading e-books and Instapaper articles, playing games, writing blog posts, etc. We won’t use it for Photoshop or anything we need a real file system for. But that’s okay — that’s why we have a computer at work and at home.
Seriously? He’s basically describing what the iPhone and iPod Touch already do. Now of course, Frommer is as entitled to his opinion as anyone else, but he writes for Forbes, and you would expect, or at least hope, that articles from a site as reputable as Forbes would have a little bit more substance and insight, if any at all.
