As you've likely read, Apple CEO Tim Cook recently gave his first extended public interview. My favorite tidbit was the widely reported statement by Cook that he uses his iPad 80% of the time, has ditched physical keyboards almost entirely, and has entered the so called post-PC era with gusto.
Here I say: welcome to my world Mr. Cook!
It's no surprise really. There's a reason why PC sales are shrinking (not slowing, shrinking) and tablet sales are booming, cannibalizing PC sales, even though some continue to miss the forest for the trees. The simple reality is that for most of the people most of the time a tablet is a better tool to accomplish what they need to accomplish. And since the iPad remains far and away the best tablet on the market, it sits firmly at the top of the post-PC world.
Sorry if this feels like an I told you so post. And before you say “well 80% still means he uses a Mac 20% of the time” I would say two things:
1) My bet is that 80% understates the reality
2) If the CEO of the largest company in the world (by market cap) can use an iPad at least 80% of the time, can't you?
