This week, Walt’s column features the concept of the “information appliance,” something that has changed meaning over the years, since the introduction of the Apple II. Now that the smartphone has become everyone’s main computer, what is next in the progression? Walt and Nilay discuss this on a great retro-tech episode of Ctrl-Walt-Delete.

We love your feedback on the topics of the show and suggestions on how to make our podcasts better and more fun for the new year — you can tweet at Walt at @waltmossberg and Nilay at @reckless.
