This is true. Also impressive is that large touch panels were impossible to produce in large enough quantities to make it economically feasible, until the iPad broke that wall down.I was an iPad doubter at first. But I truly think that the "tablet market" was not an inevitability, at least not in the near future. I think if apple decided to not make an iPad, we wouldn't be here talking about tablets at all

I think there will be plenty of people still converting by 2015, especially since I'm certain such a conversion takes longer in a down economy.*Global economy. Plenty of developing nations will be in the market for smartphones in the coming decades.*We still have a generation of people alive who use landlines. Some of them have...
Unlikely. That would require a complete change of their business model. Remember, Google makes money off of their users information. Apple makes money off of hardware sales. It would be different if Apple actually had the capability/interest in using this information for profit
I hate it when products don't live up to the expectations set by the commercials http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ziwz...e_gdata_player
