What a douchebag.
Android has been in the works long before Jobs unveiled the iOS.

This crap is the main reason I really hate Apple..even though I have an iPhone.

I think they have made some good products, no doubt their marketing is great, but they dont invent shit. They are good packagers of technology.

and then they get compared to MS all the time, guess what...MS has both a consumer brand and a business brand. The technology advancements MS makes in the business space are huge. Apple doesnt have ANYTHING there.

Now, I'm not saying Jobs was on the Stalin level of elite asshole, however he was a self centered, detestable, arrogant asshole. He had much more power than the vast majority of people and the only thing he perused with it was personal greed. Granted, it was his "right" to do so, however just because he's dead you don't get to whitewash his actions. So F Steve Jobs, and yes, "good riddance".

actually I do hate the taskbar, I hate the one button mouse. I dont hate everything apple but I cant stand the arrogance surrounding everything they make.

I seem to recall that you'd put an apple to the mouth of a roasted sucking pig, for that it softens the grimace...

Although on second thought, I must refuse to equate a dead to that of a sucking pig, for one is delectable and another despicable.

That was mostly Steve Jobs' personal arrogance manifesting itself in company decisions. Maybe with a new CEO that doesn't have an ego the size of a planet, apple can get a little more down to earth. Then again, arrogant elitism seems to being the main selling point of many apple products, especially the macbook

Generally, you stuff a large rock into the dead's mouth so they can't come back and eat you.

Now we'll probably have to contend with a hungry zombie Steve Jobs when the comet comes close to Earch.

I think this says enough.. Before and after the iPhone.

That left side of that pic covers something like 15 years of cell tech, Including a star-tac and an n-gage gaming handheld (not really a phone), the right side only covers the last 4-5 years, and only includes touchscreens which all have, by necessity, roughly the same shape.

Theres only so much you can do with a 3.5 inch screen and 4 buttons. If anything, all the modern phones look like palm pilots

The Soldier,

As long as any website i goto uses flash the iPad sucks cock. I will never, ever own one until it does.

I'll give $2000 for a android tablet that supports flash, before buying an iPad that doesnt

Steve Jobs was a freaking idiot not to ensure the iPad ran flash.

and you know what, Steve Jobs didnt even come up with the idea for an iPhone or an iPad

the first iAnything was seen on the debut episode of StarTrek the Next Generation back in 1987 as one was handed to Captain Picard. They continued to use trekpads thru Deep Space Nine and Voyager... and long, long after they were off the air Steve Jobs claims to have come up with the iPad

so.. not only did he not invent, create or even think of an iPad originally he also didnt put flash on it. omg.. grrr... such a loser

Wish there was someway to add the Angrybirds theme to that picture. FYI. PADD or Personal Access Display Device, which had limited internal storage (for the 24th Century), but acted more like a cloud device directly connected to the ships super (uber) central computer; in other words a knock on iCloud. In Star Trek Enterprise which takes place 200 years before this they have them aswell and was also pre-iPad. If Apple could patent the wheel and charge every one for it, they would.

Any more last breaths to hold off the anti-trust lawsuit announced today that charges Apple with price collusion?

You forgot the first trunk mounted cell phone from the 1950s, and several other large screen candy bar form factor phones that predated the iPhone.

Also, you forgot a couple made a year before the iPhone, like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtwPlEbwoxI (sry, video is of pretty bad quality due to how old it is )

Notice:
1) the shape
2) screen
3) style of the trim
4) lack of buttons

Apple popularizes stuff*, but doesn't often invent anything new.

* luckily for Apple, most electronics companies don't know how to polish a device for consumer usability. Ka-ching! for Apple, and almost nothing for the actual innovators.
