Harry McCracken talks tablets, slates

Tech journalist and blogger Harry McCracken thinks that devices that "are not traditional PCs" were a big deal at CES.

Harry McCracken of Technologizer talks with Larry Magid at CES Showstopper Joshua Weinberg

CES was awash with nontraditional PCs like tablets, slates, smartbooks, and Netbooks. Harry McCracken, founder and chief blogger at Technologizer and former editor-in-chief of PC World, talks with Larry Magid about the nontraditional PC devices he saw at CES and one device that has never been seen in public--the Apple tablet that is rumored to be announced on January 27.

McCracken thinks that Apple's sofware is what will distinguish its device from the ones he saw at CES.
