The money quote from Brooke Crothers in his latest CNET article is this:
In one sense, Microsoft has succeeded already, by demonstrating that there is a third paradigm: a transformable tablet.
Steve Jobs knocked the idea before, saying it was “ergonomically terrible” and “we’ve done tons of user testing on this, and it turns out it doesn’t work.”
Well, Microsoft showed us Monday that it could work. That’s all I need to see.
Mr Crothers, if that’s all you need to see, you should stop writing about technology for CNET and find some drooling fanboy web site that doesn’t require any critical thinking or skepticism about the products you write about. One that allows you to just watch a web video and make pronouncements on the future of technology and disparage the work of other companies without ever having used those products.
Wait…that sounds exactly like CNET, doesn’t it?
