re: Apple Now Top PC Maker, Report Says
The logic in assuming a tablet is a PC by saying it can e-mail, browse the web, etc. is incorrect, otherwise a smart phone, iPhone or Android is also a PC. A tablet is nothing more than a large screen PDA, just like we had in the late 90's and early 2000's. It has limited capabilities, has limited storage with no way to upgrade it, can not plug in external devices like CDROM, DVD or similar accessories like a PC can, nor do most software programs for a PC (or Apple OSX) operate on it. Only watered down versions or feature limited operations (or apps) just like a PDA can be used on it.
You can also browse, email, and do things like that with your television, set-top box or other device that uses your new HDTV for a monitor, but we don't call those PC's either. You can do all those things with many cars navigation systems for the last few years, but again those are not considered PC's. Clearly this is an article slanted towards Apple statistics to raise investments and stock prices, not reality.
