Yeah, that was pretty predictable, wasn't it? Ha ha iPad Apple really blew it this time and soon enough "iPad" is just the noise you make to mean "tablet" and no one thinks any more of it than "zipper" or "kleenex."

Certain people were snickering, but mainly juvenile males.

IMO. it's a toss-up between Apple and Google, something I might not had said a year ago.

Troublesome. . .

"Everyone snickering" needed to grow up.

They continue trying to shoehorn the full version of Windows into them, despite having a pretty good operating system for the Windows Phone 7 that's already built to do the whole touchscreen thing. I suspect the Windows team is strategically sabotaging the team working on the Windows Phone 7.x OS.

   Apple develops an improved programming language.  Google copied Java.  Everything you need to know, right there.

Interesting, isn't it? Some of us said that people would forget that silliness after a while.

It's also interesting that not only did HP copy the shape of the iPad, but they took two names of Apple products and put them together and took it as their own for their own tablet.

Didn't help.

Apple just wants to control the rights to their own work.

Google wants to control your life. They also aid and abet criminal activity.

A nice move by Google, acknowledging Steve Jobs as the best CEO in 50, perhaps even 100 years.

Doesn't matter, you can read all the things Schmitt has said, and look at all the things Google has done to see that I'm right.
