It's perfectly fine to say "I see no compelling use case in $Gadget for ME," but another thing altogether to generalizie to "There is no use case for $Gadget." One is intellectual honesty and one... isn't.

Which is why my major complaint over tablets/smartphones/smartwatches is the fact that you cannot properly pare-down and customize them to fit YOUR own particular needs. Short of hacking/jailbreaking/re-flashing them, they are going to be weighed down with a shit-ton of useless and unwanted crap. The very idea that you don't automatically have root access on hardware YOU OWN is just plain wrong, and nothing will ever quite meet your needs.
