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.

Just ask someone what version of Windows they are using and you'll meet people that don't know, despite having a Windows XP splash screen while booting for years.

And some answer Microsoft, Windows 97, Office or even stranger things.

Some people buy an Android tablet thinking they now have an iPad. Not sure changing the shape or color would/could prevent that though.

These people are out there and have a vote in the next election.
