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.

The main issue is that Samsung created their products so that people will see them and think they are an Apple device.


I don't think most people are too stupid to notice the Samsung logo.

I've more than a couple of people tell me they had an Samsung iPad


That happens sometimes, just like people used to call their Walkman a Walkman even if it wasn't a Sony. There's plenty of examples of this in history.

They were shocked when I told them it wasn't an iPad.
Note: The people bought them at Best Buy.


So it's a Best Buy problem, not a Samsung problem.
