Looks like Robert Cringely is being pulled into the tablet computing reality distortion field. But Cringely has a twist–he thinks that an Apple tablet could be the missing link for media convergence, making it easy to bring your media from the computer to the home entertainment center and vice versa.
Some sort of remote control on steroids that also handles media bridging could certainly be lust worthy, and about the only way I could see Apple getting into the tablet pc space, which despite all the palpitations from various geeks around the net still looks like a solution waiting for a problem to me.
