Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

Being born in 1975 does not give you a right to move goalposts.

Does my rationale has any shortcomings if you ignore the fact that I worked with those machines first hand?

Will it reduce the iPhone sales volume, or popularity? Does it make palm pilot treo the most successful 360 degree solution for mobile computing? What goal posts I've changed ?

You redefined verb "pioneer" to suit your narrative.
