Features, Office A few weeks ago, we talked about how the rise of computing, a field wherein English is the primary language, is affecting smaller languages, and more specifically, the Dutch language (because that's my native tongue). Of course, it's not just the smaller languages that are affected - English, too, experiences the pressure.

I think the Apple iWhatever is distinct enough from any convention. It's more of a marketing/identity thing than a readability solution.

I hope Apple will name their tablet something modern, and not just something boring like iPad, iTablet or whatever.

... that's another thing, perhaps it's just me, but Apple has a real hard time naming things that sound appealing to me, that aren't operating systems that is.

It's either iBoring, or some nebulous thing like "Time Machine" or "Boot Camp". They sound more like bad puns and play-on-words than communicative titles of technologies.
