PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Today, the technology world is gripped by what can only be described as a dirty war between iOS on one side, and Android on the other. While the parties in this war fight it out in the US court system, the web has latched onto this conflict like a starved leach to a nice juicy ankle, and this focus on just iOS and Android has had a rather unpleasant side effect. This effect was subtle at first, but now, it's everywhere. Yes, if you were to believe the web, iOS and/or Android invented everything when it comes to mobile operating systems. I will have none of that, and my PDA collection begs to differ too.

Why does it matter who was first to do X and Y? The tablet is a natural step in the evolution of miniaturized computing. Even star trek thought up the tablet before any of these bickering bozos.

Frankly, the US (my home of 30 years) will continue to bleed in the world economy as it continues on it's path to litigious governance and business policy. There are so many greedy leaches here, both in terms of the political elite and corporate boardrooms, that those of us remaining in productive roles cannot carry the economy.

Edit: Good luck, rest of world, I only hope that the bureaucracy responsible for poisoning the US isn't contagious.
