Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

Let us not forget that the Nokia N770/N800/N810 series of "internet tablets" came with 225 PPI displays, just a step below what Apple is touting today, and this was 5 years ago. Still use my N810, but to be honest, my eyes can't make use of the high resolution. Any PPI over about 100 is a waste of time.

You know, for many a year I had wanted one of the Nokia Internet Tablets, after I had first read about them. Finally was able to afford the N900 when it came out and you know what???

I Absolutely LOVE IT!! All the bullshit that happened afterward makes me nothing short of furious at how everything I have ever loved and appreciated technology wise always gets set up to become an underdog.

I loved the Amiga, it all but died, loved the N900, Maemo was canceled then semi-brought back with the N9 (bought one of those too), etc. If I had been old enough at the time, I probably would have loved Beta over VHS. Though I did pick right with Bluray, it's still arguable whether or not it's the better technology, though I think it is just on the massive size they can hold.

But I'll never like Apple products, and I never have. I have respect for Wozniak, but past that everything that has anything to do with Apple has been crap, especially the love they now have of patenting crap that others have long since been doing.

To be honest the N900 was the first okis iteration of maemo, the N<=810 were really bad. Bad UI, sluggish... So good thing that you waited for the N900 ;)
