PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung, the one-liners and jokes flew back and forth. One in particular, by Dan Frakes, has been copied and pasted all over the web, and it goes like this: "When the iPhone debuted, it was widely criticized for having no buttons/keys. Now people think the iPhone's design is 'obvious'." This is a very common trend in this entire debate that saddens me to no end: the iPhone is being compared to simple feature phones, while in fact, it should be compared to its true predecessor: the PDA. PDAs have always done with few buttons.

Member since:

Even more words to say that Apple is not a monopoly but there is some nebulous FUD threat that they will sue everybody until they do have one!

You have no intention of actually debating the merits of my arguments. You simply attempt to shut it down by repeatedly calling it FUD.

I have tried to be polite, but obviously intelligent discourse is wasted on you as you lack the skills necessary for critical thinking in the first place.
