PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

Did you guys remember that the DARPA founded Google, I don't think they did just because they are cool guys.

No, I don't remember that but that's because it didn't happen.
DARPA is not a founder of Google.

I remember clearly, some years ago I read the news. Not the same news but is an article about it.
