Dear Apple: You’re not “Post-PC” until You Cut the Cord
On Wednesday, Steve Jobs took the stage and announced what he called “Apple’s third post-PC blockbuster”, the iPad 2. Don’t get me wrong: I’m loving everything I’ve seen about the iPad 2 and I plan on grabbing one next Friday when they become available, but watching the event from Wednesday, the use of the phrase “post-PC” was just blatantly incorrect.
(Shawn's Comment: While I disagree with the writer's last line ("If you don’t (cut the cord), I fear that Google is going to eat your post-PC market."), I do agree that calling the iDevices "Post-PC" is just marketing speak and hype.)
