The tame tech press.
Yes the tech press really do need to get their priorities right.
Had modern computer tech back in the 80's just been down to Apple most of us would never have got to use a computer as an everyday item let alone own several of them for use at home and on the go.
It certainly wasn't Apple's efforts that gave most of them a career. Not that MS deserves a free pass but this current total reality disconnect that just because tech journos can do 99% of their (let's be honest) hardly that demanding job on just a phone and a tablet doesn't mean the rest of the working world should be able to as well.
Most people have to do boring but quite intensive jobs on their computers that tablets just don't cut it for.
And as for switching to Mac for doing those jobs on, well ask my other half that when she joined a web agency she caused gasps when she asked for a windows PC to do her job on rather than the 100% Mac environment they had. Anyway they gave her a £1200 PC (same as what they spent on Macs basically) and she loved it.
Unfortunately so did a lot of the Mac using staff. Why? Because hers was the only machine man enough to do a lot of the boring day to day tasks that the HR and accounts folks couldn't do on their Macs.
"Can I just run the payroll on your PC? My Mac just takes ages/crashes when I do it!"
But the tech journos say we should all be running such stuff on iPads!!??
