Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

Holy... Just... Wow.

You really believe that, don't you? I like my Iphone but... Dude, you need to lay off the IV.


You might want to know that I do not own an iPhone (although many co-workers here do, so I have access to the device). I had a 1st Gen one for about a month, then it broke and didn’t feel like buying another, given that I really only use the phone as phone and even then, I rarely use it.

I also had an iPhone 3GS for a couple of weeks (courtesy of a friend). It’s a very nice device, and I still think that it has changed the computer industry as a whole (and the phone industry as well). Now I’m back at my old Nokia (and pretty much useless) but very small and simple to use as a Phone. Also I can drop/lose this cheap nokia and they give me another one for free.

I insist, iPhone changed it all. Google, Nokia, LG, Motorola? started to think in terms of iPhoneish…

You claimed it changed the entire tech industry - I'm sure if the impact is that profound, you can surely come up with numerous examples quite easily, right?

Obviously, the iPhone's success impacted the phone business - but the entire tech industry? How? Where? What?

Nevermind. The iPhone didn’t change anything but the phone industry.
