Those "little things" like internet browsing, simple games etc. before required a computer to achieve those tasks which required some sort of computer acumen. Now Billy Bob and whoever else can just pick up an iDevice and do those things without learning about user accounts/file system maintenance/backups.

quote: Some fear of the post-PC market comes from consumerization of information technology in the enterprise. This is happening in companies where employees are beginning to bring their own iPads, iPhones, or Android devices and tablets to the office. By using their own devices IT managers save money by not having to provide a device. This is also seen as a contributor to the decline of the computer in the post-PC market.
