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 personnally have not moved the goal posts. I still back everything I've said in this discussion. If you can't figure out how to use an iPad to be very productive and creative then it is the user and their lack of imagination that is slowing them down or stopping them.

I ADDED webkit to this discusision. I notice that you didn't have anything to refute about what I said about this.

Exactly how is Apple (or Google or Firefox) controlling webkit to meet their own ends? Since it is open and they are all contributing to it I can't figure out how your comment idea works.

PS: Microsoft or anyone can (quite a few others not named have) create their own web browsers based on top of webkit. The rules are that you have to contribute back to it just like the previously mentioned companies/groups.
