Apple's just-released iPad Pro represents a brief moment of excitement in a market segment that is otherwise a terrible bore. Tablets are great devices, of course, but the market is already in decline following the realization that for most people, tablets cannot actually replace either a laptop or a smartphone. That places them squarely in a category with other luxury items; they're nice to have, but they're hardly a necessity.
The new iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad Apple has ever made. In some tests, it's actually more powerful than the MacBook Pro. Apple fans who have purchased the new model appear to be enamored, and they've taken to social media to express their excitement. Even more exciting than the iPad Pro itself, however, are some recent comments about Apple's latest tablet that were made by an executive at Microsoft.
