» The wrong case

Dan Frommer on the Surface 3 in his first piece at his new home at Quartz:

The main problem is that this is still a Windows 8 machine, missing the elegance of Apple’s iOS, its touch-based app selection, and its accessory and media ecosystem. Really, Microsoft has just made a good argument for Apple to release a larger (and even thinner) iPad Pro sometime sooner than later—that actually sounds great.

Most of my video consumption these days is on the Apple TV or my iPad and, as strange as it sounds, I’m interested in a larger iPad I can watch things on in the kitchen, in the living room, anywhere I want. I don’t know how it squares with owning other sizes, because a larger iPad is not good for reading. But for that use case, there is an argument.
