Apple's new iPad has some pundits extolling the imminent demise of the PC. Not so fast! Enterprise CIO Forum editorial director Bill Laberis...
Today's applications weren't designed to be deployed on a myriad of devices. They're legacy. Many need to be replaced. Whether tablets replace PCs or not, the takeaway is that multiple device use requires applicatoins to be rewritten, modernized, etc. Application modernization is the type of activity that is often put off. Perhaps the tablet trend (as well as BYOD) well help deal with this issue.

Well said, Steven. I just hope the iPad gets some stiffer competition so tablets evolve faster.
