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.

Complete and utter bullshit.

Apple is just another a consumer products company - not much different to Dyson (vacuum cleaners). Dyson and Jobs both took existing products, added a bit of polish and told outrageous lies to sell millions of suckers their overpriced crap.


What were the lies Apple told? Just wondering what your definition of outrageous. I'm actually fairly confident that iPhones and iPads flew off of the shelves. That's either a lot of suckers, or just one individual on OSNews.

I'll take the latter given the Apple has so much clout they transcend the carriers.
