Not Getting the iPad

Sam Grobart, jumping through hoops to justify his sensational “Microsoft’s new Surface tablet computer is not an iPad competitor” lead sentence:

There’s a significant population out there, people who look at an iPad and say, “I like it, but can I get one to replace my laptop? Even for just some of the time?” And the honest answer has always been, “No.” The iPad has plenty of accessories, but it’s not a productivity device.

I love how the link is to another piece by — wait for it — Grobart himself, explaining why he needs something more than an iPad. The best refutation: today’s new iPad TV commercial from Apple.
