Tablets will succeed, and open up many new possibilities, once they are done right....


So cute. I just love how everyone here EVERY YEAR and EVERY APPLE SHOW starts asking "Will Apple announce a tablet?"

To me it is like the cruel reality of kids waking eagerly to Christmas waiting for Santa Claus only to have some drunk father say "Shuddup and go back to bed."

But they believe in Santa. And every time they get told the same thing.

Ladies and gents, "Santa Claus" cancelled the Newton. Santa didn't like the Newton then, and he won't like the Newton later. Or anything like it.

You know when you can believe in "Santa Claus" again? When he shows up and gives you gifts. I mean did we wait with baited breath in 1990, 1991, or 1992 before the Newton came out saying "Will Apple release a tablet computer?" No, it was the whim of Apple to try to make one. And we think that because that whim happened before that Apple will try that again.

But for now you are better off realizing that Apple is not some jolly Santa Claus to make our geek fantasies come true. Apple is just some fat guy who will eat your breakfast and send you back to bed empty and disappointed.
