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.
