I love my iPad. It is probably my most loved device, but there is an old fuddy-duddy part of my brain that says “this isn’t a REAL computer”.

But it also says current-day PCs and Macs aren’t *quite* the same degree of computer as a Commodore 64 that booted into a BASIC prompt.

At least in usage, most of these devices are all “internet applicances”.
