Re: I'd like to have his problems

It was never there in the first place...it was all hype and packaging....

If that was the case, then why should things change now? I've never owned an I-Phone and had a touchscreen smartphone before they came on the market, but there's no denying how much Apple influenced the market with them. Most notably, I think in encouraging the kind of apps we all now use. Yes, they bought in technology, but they also did lots of software themselves and also had a say in the hardware that was developed.
