PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jobs called Android a 'stolen product', but theft can be a tricky concept when talking about innovation. The iPhone didn't emerge fully formed from Jobs's head. Rather, it represented the culmination of incremental innovation over decades - much of which occurred outside of Cupertino." Nothing particularly new in there for regular OSNews readers, but still handy to have it in one place.

Not really, although that's the usual fanboy history of things. Apple not having MMS, multitasking, copy & paste, proper notification, a half-decent camera, etc etc etc, and you guys will pretend it's either 1) unneccesary 2) comes with negative impact on Apple's holistic design philosophy, battery life, ease of use etc etc or 3) something they'll come along with once they do it properly since they always do it properly and superior right at the beginning.

Apple is in fact a follower in almost all areas, but with a fan base that will overlook all their shortcomings for the few things they do right, which are the only ones that count. Which makes them the best by default.


Huh? Are you agreeing with WorknMan or disagreeing with him? It sounds like you're trying to disagree with him, but you've just mostly repeated what he was saying. (Which I agree with.)
