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.

About being an artist and using an iPad. Here is another thing that makes an iPad flexible. Note that styluses are wrong for most things. Drawing is a different type of user. Here we go for those that can't understand what can be done with an iPad. This from http://www.tuaw.com/2012/08/01/adonit-jot-touch-pressure-sensitive-...

Adonit Jot Touch pressure-sensitive Bluetooth stylus for iPad
by Steven Sande Aug 1st 2012 at 6:00PM

Although there are many electrostatic styluses for the iPad for those who wish to use them, the seemingly unattainable goal of creating a pressure-sensitive stylus eluded peripheral manufacturers until now. Adonit's Jot Touch (US$99.99) became available to the public earlier this week, becoming the first pressure-sensitive stylus for the iPad.

See the link for the whole article. It's a very good website for things Apple. Don't read it if you want to stay in the dark under your bed about what iPads and other Apple devices can create and do.
