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.

I hope that Apple's lawyers get their backsides kicked up one side of the courtroom and down the other.

I am sick and tired of Apple claiming to have "invented" everything, when darned near everything they claim to have invented actually existed beforehand. "Prior art", in other words.

I'm proud to say that I have never owned any Apple product and I never will, so Apple has never made a cent off me.
