Apple's rumored tablet is just the latest incarnation of the form factor. In fact, the tech industry has been pushing tablet PCs forever with little success. The big question we address in this podcast: Can Apple make tablets cool?

You can play this 19-minute episode from the Flash-based player at the top of the page or you can download the MP3 file. Later this month we'll also be launching the podcast in iTunes and the Zune Marketplace.
