Of course this strip was to get a lot of asses.........
Setting aside everything from Tablets and Smartphone are carp to desktop are antiques and what not, the truth is that in not so many years the average computer would fit in the palm of your hand , of course you will have a big, decent display some sort of keyboard...
And only because game, and entertainment apps are the most downloaded, doesn't meant that , neither the users only uses as a "Glorified Nintendo" nor that the Tablet cannot be used as an effective working tool; just think what sellÂ´s more in the market for the average Joe leisure activities or working "serious" stuff"?
Of course this pointless "debate" will continue on for long time
Here are few things one can do with smartphone and not PC:
a) walking down the street like a zombie texting,
b) sitting on a toilet in public washroom talking to someone
c) disturbing and annoying people in theatre
