computers v. handhelds

- A couple of weeks ago Walt Mossberg said that the PC has peaked.
- At a CALI plenary on Tuesday Rob Curley waved his handheld at us and told us that this is where the media need to push information now.
- Today it's being reported that AT&T has hired 2,000 extra workers for the launch of the iPhone on June 29.
On top of all of that, I got really sick of dragging my laptop around in the 100+ degree heat in Las Vegas. Lots of the people at CALI were using laptops (a significant percentage of which were Apple machines). But there were a number of laptopless geeks using various handheld devices who were getting covetous looks from everyone else. And those iPhones look mighty nice.
