Re: Ipad only a content consumption device
Is that why my wife wrote her last book on an iPad?
(Oh, and that's an iPad2, which isn't getting replaced any time soon)
If getting a contract to write a book, and then fulfilling it isn't enough to count as content creation then heaven help us.
The only thing you need to make a tablet a content creation device is a halfway decent keyboard.
Whereas a PC needs, Oh, a keyboard to be useful. erm, that'd be the same keyboard you use with the tablet then (yes we use the same keyboard on the PC (acquired since the book was published) as with the tablet - I have a spare sat near the PC for when the normal one is "out on business")
OK then, they need proper software. Erm... Apple sells it's word processing software for iOS and OSX?
Personally I think the PC is dead for most people. There are very few things you can't do with a tablet. Our list:
- iPod classic management ('though Apple could enable that)
- GPS dongle downloads (gpsbabel on android is close though)
- DVD backups/format shifting (and actually I suspect the android could do that, albeit slowly)
