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.

RE[2]: Orfanum has it right

Give it a rest and report on more fun and interesting stuff.

I'm not blaming Thom for doing this at all. Things like this get people posting and creating new page views which brings in more money. Again, I don't blame Thom at all for this.

The best thing to do is just pass by posts like this if you don't like them. It's like a TV. You have the remote. You can change the channel any time you want.

But I do wish there was more fun stuff too. But fun stuff takes time to research and it isn't like Thom has a lot of free time to do this. You could always send Thom a million dollars and then he would probably have plenty of time to research and post more fun articles. ;)

PS: Unfortunately there really isn't too much interesting stuff going on with Amiga or Haiku (BeOS opensource clone), etc. Thom is doing the best he can but people have to do interesting fun stuff for him to have something to post.
