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.

"Exactly. They CANNOT actually do any work on their tablet. Wanna know why? It's a toy."


Then a phone is a toy. Plus all the other devices that you can communicate over distance from one place to another is just a toy.

Wow, how wrong you can be.

Using a device to communicate over distance to do work is not a toy. Just can you can't get your head around it.

It is starting to sound like you are very jealous that you are stuck at work looking out your window wishing you were someone else. And now that you found out other people can be, AND get lots of work done, must be making you angry.

Well, I'm on vacation. I'm going back to watching the Olympics. Oh wait, I'm doing this on a remote device and am not actually at the Olympics. I guess my tv is just a toy. Oh well, I'm enjoying myself.

Audios.
