The Apple tablet rumours are picking up again. Since we are just four weeks away from MacWorld, this is no surprise. Interesting speculation going on about Apple’s possible moves to make it’s own CPUs for these future darlings. It’s exciting to me because it seems all of the motion in the world of computing is in mobile devices. The desktop computer is now an appliance, about as worthy of news coverage as refrigerators according to John C. Dvorak. And for once I agree with the cranky geek. My iPhone is my most important computer now and my desktop computers are just media appliances, relegated to encoding and serving up audio and video for my family’s enjoyment.

All hail the coming Apple Mobile Device, whatever the hall it turns out to be.
