As Walt Mossberg wrote in his column this week: “the thrill is gone.” PCs were once on top of the consumer tech market, but that was before the introductions of the modern smartphone and tablet. Both Apple and Microsoft have new computers coming out for this holiday season, but will there be that same excitement as when it was king? Walt and Nilay discuss on this week’s Ctrl-Walt-Delete.
