Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

He's not missing the point. He's answering the point you raised. You provided the picture of the Newton in an attempt to challenge the claim that Palm invented the simplistic icon home screen.

You can't change the subject, just because you were mistaken.

Incidentally, who was laughing at Apple at the launch of the iPhone? The only entity I can think of was Microsoft, and they were bound to do that, because the iPhone was a competitor to their own WinMobile 6 phones.
