In the beginning God (aka Steve Jobs) resurrected Apple. And then he said, “Let there be light” and there was the iPad. Two years later, The Tablet War is heating up. In the same month that Microsoft released its own ware, Google has also entered the fray.

Obviously the tablet game is far from simple; if you need evidence, just witness Leo Apotheker’s disastrous tenure at Hewlett-Packard. But everyone is still willing to jump into the game, for the payoff is almost as great as the risk. In a post PC world, he who does not adapt dies, he who adapts gets to eat all the pies.

In this game of thrones, it is hard not to choose Apple, the company with the greatest market value (by far) . In addition, by integrating its offerings ever since the Messiah returned, Apple already has all the chess pieces in place. With the iPad already well in place, it is hard to fathom any product short of perfection could dethrone it, as least for the short term.
