Jobs at D8 on Flash, iPad and the Post-PC era

Quote:
Events have just kicked off at the D8 Conference with Apple CEO Steve Jobs taking the stage for a conversation with All Things Digital producers Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.

After an introduction from Rupert Murdoch commenting on how content creators and technology companies are "finally getting along," the trio took the stage to shed light on some of the most salient issues the company faces today.

Jobs had much to say about the current slate of hot topics, from the company's ongoing tussle with Adobe over Flash content on the web, the Foxconn suicides, the iAd mobile ad platform, the iPad's role in saving journalism and potential replacing the personal computer, and more.

While he definitely has some interesting things to say, some of the things I just don't believe...in my opinion, tablets will never replace PCs. Net/Notebooks maybe, but not the desktop computer.

You are correct, blackrose. The desktop computer will never be old school, there are several things I can think of right now that I could not use a tablet long-term for. If anything, tablets may eventually eliminate netbooks. I ditched my netbook for an iPad, but that barely made a dent in my extensive desktop usage.
