When you follow in someone else's footsteps it is your responsibility to make sure you don't step on their heels. If you want to pass someone blazing a trail like Apple wait for them to slow down & then sprint.

Apple has fought it's way back from the dead & they did so by pushing the market, without them HTC & others would still be pushing crappy BBerry competitors & Win Mobile 7 may never have been born. Everyone sat around for like 10 years saying Apple was going to be a passing fad & then all of a sudden Apple is kicking their tail and so they are whining about it. Big bad Apple, shame on them for doing what others could not.

All the Apple haters need to recognize what the market was before Apple became a serious force to be reckoned with, the state of the smart phone and tablet was a pathetic joke.

Absolutely. All smart phones and PDAs descend from the Newton. The term PDA did not even exist before the Newton, and was first used publicly by John Sculley. All of these people claiming prior art on all Apples patents simply do not understand the role Apple has played in the development of technology.

Even if the IP involved was PDA related the existence of the Newton wouldn't mean that prior art was impossible, but as it is in none of these cases is anybody asserting any PDA IP, so your point here is not only incorrect but also irrelevant.
