François Vogel is a visual artist that hates 3D. And while the debate about 3D being the next step of entertainment is still a hotly-debated topic, the consensus that most people don't want to wear 3D glasses to watch 3D entertainment seems pretty straight forward: they don't want to wear them.

BlackBerry PlayBook is a Great Standalone Tablet, RIM Senior Product Manager Says

As far as tablets go, not many of them have been designed to be an out-right extension of a smaller device, like a smartphone.
