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 mean Apple had the MessagePad A.K.A Newton long before, even Start Trek had the idea of touch devices


and palm had it's first pda (the zoomer) on the streets one year prior to the newton

and those palm-bastards iirc came from grid, a company you definitely should take a closer look at ;)

Apple an OS experienced company
