Sad News?

Doc Searls says IBM's selling of its PC line is sad news. Although I use a Thinkpad at work (and should be getting an upgrade real soon now), I'm not sure this is sad news.

Where is the PC market going? I think it needs a good shake up to bring some creativity back. Maybe this shedding will allow some of that... well, this is IBM we're talking about. But maybe this will shake enough up to jump start the beginning of 21st century consumer computing rather than squeezing out ever finer inefficiencies of a 20th century product line.
