Spectacularly idiotic comment
"Apple has ported their successful iPhone app business model to the iPad. Android-based phones followed in their footsteps and will surely do the same with slates. The result will be that buyers of slates will be able to take advantage of this a la carte software model, adding only the functionality they want on their devices."
This is a new model. This is because when you get a PC you have a fixed menu of software and must download every single one of the millions of bits of software for the PC.
