PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Thorsten Heins, BlackBerry's CEO: "Apple did a fantastic job in bringing touch devices to market ... They did a fantastic job with the user interface, they are a design icon. There is a reason why they were so successful, and we actually have to admit this and respect that. History repeats itself again I guess ... the rate of innovation is so high in our industry that if you don't innovate at that speed you can be replaced pretty quickly. The user interface on the iPhone, with all due respect for what this invention was all about is now five years old." Ironic, perhaps, that this comes from a BlackBerry CEO, but that doesn't make him wrong - although I'm sure the usual suspects will claim that it does.

I was given a new iPad Mini for my birthday last week. I had to hide the disappointment on my face because I hate the iPad with a vengeance - it is a completely useless device for anything except web browsing or viewing media. It really annoys me that my family were suckered into paying well over AUD500 for something not worth AU200.

*I refused to even open the box because I plan to immediately sell it on Ebay.
