The Apple tablet has the tech world frothing at the mouth, but would an Apple tablet be more of a netbook replacement for light computing or more of an e-book reader? TechRepublic and ZDNet editors bat around that question and talk about who the target audience might be and whether or not Apple could really make tablets cool enough for the masses.

The Big Question podcast is a joint production from ZDNet and TechRepublic that I co-host with ZDNet Editor in Chief Larry Dignan. This week's guest is Sam Diaz, a Senior Editor for ZDNet and Silicon Valley correspondent.
