Many, many other people have discovered just how productive a tablet can be. Yes, it is a toy for many, but even a toy can have real use in the right hands. After all, Mattel assembled the M-16, even if it was designed by Colt. Is the M-16 a toy, or a tool? If you ask me it's a toy--flimsy and buggy compared to the much older M-14. Significantly lighter, but I prefer the heft of a solid weapon over the plastic feel of today's military arms.
