    Jobs: The PC is a truck. Ballmer: There's a reason they're called 'Mac' trucks.


    One of the more interesting exchanges at D8 actually happened across two days as both Steve Jobs and Steve Ballmer were asked about the future of PCs: Jobs compared traditional computers and tablets to cars and trucks by saying most people will eventually only need tablets while some would still need the added utility of a PC, and Ballmer responded directly by saying, "Well, there may be a reason why they call them 'Mac' trucks!" Ballmer snap.

    When it comes right down to it, though, both CEOs expressed relatively similar visions about the prevalence and importance of multiple computing form factors in the future and mostly differed on semantics -- Ballmer came right out and said he thinks the iPad is actually a PC, and we're pretty sure Jobs thinks it... isn't. Check our edited video after the break to watch these two go at it across space and time, and then check our Ballmer liveblog / video highlights and Jobs liveblog / video highlights for more.

    My iMac G3 (500MHZ, 256MB Ram, OS X 10.4) runs far faster than an old Sony Vaio with a 1GHZ Pentium III, 256MB RAM, and Windows XP ever did. They might be "Mac" trucks, but at least Apple didn't release the world's most bloated operating system to "catch up" with the trucks. (Vista anyone?)

    Just my 2 cents.
