Greenspun On the Playbook

I’ve been enjoying Philip Greenspun’s oeuvre since way back when he was writing about AOLServer, Tcl, and database backed websites. I even bought the book!

Plus, he’s got a rapier wit on the order of Olin Shivers. So herewith the conclusion to his entertaining review of the BlackBerry Playbook:

Not useful as a computer; too light to serve as a doorstop.

My friend has not asked for the tablet back (he got it for free at a conference).

Touche!
