PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

The problem with exceeding expectatons, is that everyone expects that much more out of you everytime. No one can keep that up. The iphone 4s, for instance. What part of that was above anyone's expectations? Dual processors? Siri ?

OS X became better than 0s 9 years ago. Ipods were cool once they supported windows and were flash based. But I don't think they'll be more than a foot note in history. Once you step outside the reality distortion field, you'd notice that Apple has only introduced 2 ipods that were revolutionary ( original windows usb one, and mini), 2 revolutionary phones ( iphone & iphone 4), one modernized tablet ( original ipad) . That's still amazing and incredible, but every feature & spec bump isn't revolutionary.
