Post-PC not Sans-PC

Michael Gartenberg at MacWorld:

The iPad and other devices are not here to displace the PC (by which I mean all personal computers, whether they’re Macs or PCs running Windows). In fact, post PC means after PC, a new generation of products that build on the PC. What it doesn’t mean is sans PC, that is, without PC. The personal computer will no doubt be with us for a very long time… but that doesn’t mean we’re not in the post-PC world.

I think soon enough post-pc will mean sans-pc for a good majority of folks: for many the iPad is their first PC.
