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.

Sabon,

So you are acknowledging that the desktop software and OS are superior for programmers to the tablet's native interface and software? If not, then why aren't you using the native apps and interface on the tablet itself?

There is no product that has every been developed ... yet, that is perfect for all situations. If you think so ...

Also, if you think lugging around a desktop computer with your monitor, cpu box, etc., is useful, constructive, etc., I can only imagine you don't get a lot done.

If you don't think taking advantage of the best of everything "that is best for you" (let's see if you can ever get past that last part) that again, I think that you are probably a lot less productive than you can be.

Sabon,

You don't realise it, but this is *my* point exactly!


"Also, if you think lugging around a desktop computer with your monitor, cpu box, etc., is useful, constructive, etc., I can only imagine you don't get a lot done."

Instead of combating straw men like this, you could just admit that apple has a gap in their product lineup for a tablet/laptop hybrid. This hybrid is what you and I have both been promoting, you just need to quit denying that.
