Competing visions of the future of personal computing

Quote:

A graphic making the rounds on the Internet today tries to compare Appleís vision of the future of computing with Microsoftís. Itís fun for fanboys, but this kind of snarky comparison is all too easy to make. Just look at these three alternative views.

A picture is making the rounds on the Internet today. Youíve probably seen it: a side-by-side view of two screenshots, with the iPad home page on the left and the new Windows Explorer interface (the one Microsoft plans to release with Windows 8) on the right.

Iím sorry itís taken me so long to respond, but Iím sure you understand. That image was posted at a site I never visit (except by accident) and accompanied by text from a person I never read (except by accident).*

A tablet home page in clear focus and Explorer in poor focus.

They aren't even the same thing.
