It’s a convoluted comparison but Jeffrey Mincey makes it work:
Not quite singlehandedly, Google’s YouTube has changed how a generation of mobile device users use television. Television, cable TV style, is richer than ever with a wide variety of video entertainment, information and news. YouTube has more. For some segments, more people watch YouTube than television. YouTube, somewhat like Netflix, has changed the habits of a generation of TV watchers.
The key here is that YouTube changed how a whole generation view television-like content. Likewise, Apple’s iPad Pro is the new personal computer; a car vs. a truck.
Except for a few power user apps that are not common to most Mac users– Photoshop, Lightroom, Final Cut Pro, et al– an iPad Pro and keyboard is about all many Mac and PC customers require. The switch has begun. iPad is ahead. Mac is falling behind. The post-PC era of mobile devices is here.
