Every now and again I come across a piece of clickbait that I just can't help but to click on.  This past week I saw this piece on TechCrunch the other day, supposedly proclaiming that tablets are dead.  The main thesis of the article is that  since there wasn't a lot of brand new, innovative, product in the tablet lines at MWC (mobile world congress) that the tablets are now a commodity
