PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung, the one-liners and jokes flew back and forth. One in particular, by Dan Frakes, has been copied and pasted all over the web, and it goes like this: "When the iPhone debuted, it was widely criticized for having no buttons/keys. Now people think the iPhone's design is 'obvious'." This is a very common trend in this entire debate that saddens me to no end: the iPhone is being compared to simple feature phones, while in fact, it should be compared to its true predecessor: the PDA. PDAs have always done with few buttons.

You must be kidding! In reality the only people who know or even care about what a PDA is, are you old ass people on here who are whining about Apple.

The rest of the world could give two shits.

It must be awesome to unaware of even the recent history of today's technology, I bet everything seems like some new and amazing innovation to you. Hey, check this cool new thing called "IRC" - it's like Twitter... but in real-time!!!

See first off who says I don't know. Knowing and caring are two different things. On top of that I am not talking about me. I am talking about the average user. The normal person who of you say IRC to them they will look at you confused. The average person who has only known Apple and Microsoft for most of their life. Not tech people.
