Never About the Pencils

I’m going to CES this January in Las Vegas. This is the big consumer electronics event of the year, where you get to see the future. Talk is going to be about tablet computing.

I’ll tell you this: it’s never about the pencils.

I have the new Macbook Air (the 13″). It’s pretty darned good. It’s an improvement over the last Air. Know why they made this? To compete with the iPad, I’m told, and to give a premium version of a netbook (Because Apple is never inexpensive).

Still don’t care. The only reason I bought it was to lose some weight on my backpack (hey, if it’s slow going on my belly, I’ll trim the fat in my backpack, right?).

It will still never be about the tools as much as it’s about what we do with them.
