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.

I can see why a company like Sony would get into the content business.

It's an often repeated mantra. It isn't the internet providers or the owners of the glassfibre in the ground that get rich. It's the content creators. "infrastructure" isn't where the money is.

So Sony wanted to be in the content business, instead of only creating the "underlying infrastructure".
