Newsworthy Tablet Launches · I glanced at my news­read­er yes­ter­day and gave up al­most in­stant­ly be­cause it was full of ir­rel­e­vant fluff from CES. Par­tic­u­lar­ly ir­ri­tat­ing was a post over at The Verge an­nounc­ing breath­less­ly that a ven­dor not worth men­tion­ing here was... wait for it... plan­ning to re­lease a tablet in 2012! I twit­ter­bitched: Dear Verge: “X plans to launch a tablet in 2012” is not a news sto­ry for ANY val­ue of X. Which was clear­ly wrong; many peo­ple tweet­ed back val­ues of X for which it would be news­wor­thy: Crack­er Bar­rel, Mac­don­ald­s, NASA, Vladimir Putin, a lost Ama­zo­ni­an tribe, the US Govern­men­t, Pfiz­er, and God via Mos­es. Any oth­er­s?
