Nice try, Apple. The Maxi Pad is no laptop killer – and won’t scratch the Surface

mixed stats

There seems to be an industry drive by journalists to give mixed stats that cannot be easily understood by anyone with even a basic understanding of maths...

"According to the big brains at Forrester, 59 per cent of laptop users at work spend more than three hours using the device, but only 22 per cent of their time on a fondleslab."

So, some laptop users spend more than 3 hours on laptops... so the amount of time spent on their "fondleslabs" should also be in hours. "22% of their time" cannot be compared with 3 hours.

Really, El reg, i would have expected more than a BBC level of tech reporting!!!!
