PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

Of course many of the iPhone's great features would have been introduced without Apple. I did not realize how many of them had been though.

Kudos to Apple for putting them all in one product. As Jobs himself once bragged, great artists steal.

I would not have guessed it was Sony though that so heavily influenced the industrial design. I do not associate Sony electronics with a great sense of style. Perhaps that is unfair though.
