Prickly City (1/25/10)

Despite being an avid Mac user, I have virtually no interest in Apple’s frothily anticipated tablet computer. Sure, I’ll read a couple of reviews, and will probably duck into the Apple Store at some point to fiddle with the tablet, but the idea of a bigger-than-an-iPhone-but-smaller-than-a-Macbook computer holds very little appeal for me. Will it serve as an e-reader? Maybe, but I’m a fan of printed books. Will it be an ideal device for gaming? Maybe, but I’ve yet to buy a single game for my iPhone. There are only two things I know for certain: the tablet will be pricey, and it will be awkward to compose text using the device’s touchscreen keyboard (or stylus, or other silly contraption). Go ahead, Apple. Prove me wrong.
