 Sure, the threat of the death penalty in "civilized" countries such a Iran, China and the USA has made these enlightened states murder free...
 I cannot comment on the latter symbian browsers, I was referring to the first HTML browser on a phone in 2002, the oddly named Doris . Any reasonable person would expect a browser that is 5 years older to be inferior but to suggest that you have just made the internet mobile for the first time is a lie.   I was never a fan of IE on windows mobile but there were very good 3rd party browsers such as Opera long before the iPhone came out..   Not sure if the suggestion to...
 Indeed there are white people that suffer discrimination as a result of the colour of their skin but throughout most of the "West" white people are the majority and the racism experienced by them is not instituionalised in nature and as such has a lesser impact on key sectors of their life, such as educational or vocational attainment.  I am not suggesting that the personal ramifications are any more or less but I do get bored of white males who claim that they couldn't...
 Thanks for the reply.   So if apple ever merge OSx and iOS will it be a "Post- post PC +" device?  ;)
 The distance factor seems to be very important to certain legal teams...
 There you go again with the ranting and toy throwing.   I simply stated that Apple were the first phone maker to adopt and adapt existing technologies and you burst a blood vessel. Kudos to them and their hardware partners for doing so but the suggestion that they invented everything in isolation is patently silly.   With regard to appeasing you and showing due deference to Apple for any credit that they deserve- it is difficult for me to do so. Were I to believe the...
 ???   "positive discrimination" is a commonly used synonym for "affirmative action". I'm sorry if the term offends your sensibilities,... perhaps I should have used the term "positive action"....   I should have thought that my previous post made it clear that I consider, the concept, to be a necessary evil when addressing imbalances arising from discrimination.
At what point did I say Apple stole anything?   Frankly there are times, such a this, that you come across as being extremely insecure.   I provided a link to a product that significantly predated the iPad, that from a distance could be mistaken for an iPad. I mention that the firm had a capacitive screen, I accept that I accidentally posted the resistive screen version, the cap active version is available on the link provided, again from a distance it  resembles the...
 We both know that there were devices that used capacitive screens and supported multitouch. Why do you, a seemingly intelligent fellow, insist on being so petulant when anyone dares to suggest that Apple didn't invent something. The Lemur music controller had a capacitive screen and supported multitouch before apple showed off its iPhone.   http://createdigitalmusic.com/2006/04/dualing-reviews-of-lemur-multi-touch-control-surface/   I guess that you will now discount it...
 Yes the iphone was the first phone to adopt the existing mutitouch capacitive screens.   The suggestion that all other phones sucked is just a matter of personal preference.   Had you read my earlier post you would see that I was correcting a fellow member who thought that Apple invented the smartphone in 2007.
