PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless As I already said yesterday - a bit colourful to get me point across - this older article of mine has proven not to be as accurate as I thought it was, in light of a heap of new information. I want to offer some more background to all this.

The topic is definitely getting stale. Obviously, the iPhone had a big influence on Android development. And no doubt, the iPhone took inspiration from devices that had gone before it, and has itself 'borrowed' features introduced in Android. Basically, everybody is copying everybody. And that's all cool.

Now, can we stop the pointless flame wars about who copied what from who, and who did/didn't innovate? These types of conversations always degenerate to Apple copying the GUI concept from Xerox, and it just goes 'round and 'round.

Enough already.
