It seems pretty certain that our future is going to involve mobile internet devices if it doesn’t already. By that I mean tablets and smart phones. We already have phones with resolutions higher than the 800×600 that I used to code for back a few years, (the new Google Galaxy Nexus has 1280×720 resolution). Between Apple and Google, about a million of these devices is sold a day now, so if you are not already testing your site/webapps at smart phone resolutions, you’d best be starting.

Anyway, all that aside, I’ve been reading about how Steve Jobs from Apple was determined to destroy Google Android Linux because he viewed it as stolen product. He was also prepared to blow all of Apple’s money and kill himself to do it.
So I started wondering. What in Android was stolen product from Apple?
* Was iPhone the first touch screen phone? (Nope, IBM Simon did that in 94.) There were others too, like the Motorola Accompli 008.
* Was multitasking what Google stole from Apple? (Nope, the first Iphones had no multi tasking and it was added in much later than Androids arrival which had it from the start.)
* Was iPhone the first B/G/N wireless connected phone? (Nope, this Accton page shows they were already selling Mobile wireless chips in 2006 and PDA’s with wireless were already about.)
* Was iPhone the first phone with a browser? (Nope, that happened in 1997.)
* Was iPhone the first phone with an icon based layout? (Nope, lots of phones were doing that before the iphone)
* Was iPhone the first camera phone? (Nope, Phillipe Kahn did that back in 97)
* Was iPhone the first music playing phone? (Nope, that one goes to Samsung back in 1999)
* Was iPhone the first GPS phone? (Nope, people were doing that back in 1999.)
So, what did Apple “invent” that was so ground breaking? Pinch to zoom maybe? because it seems to me that all they did was combine the functionality of a touch screen PDA with a GSM phone. And they were not the first to do that either.

So, the “invention” that Apple made that was so worth defending, was actually taking everyone else’s ACTUAL inventions, and putting them in one device and marketing it really really well.
Doesn’t seem revolutionary enough to blow 40billion dollars trying to defend though, because if you removed all the shoulders that Apple were standing on to make the iphone, you’d be standing on the ground holding a Nokia candy bar phone from the 90’s.

Steve Jobs said he’d fight to his dying breath to destroy Android, and in the end he did exactly that. He is dead and Android has never been bigger than it is today. The shame is that if he’d innovated instead of litigated he may actually have gone down in history as an real inventor rather than just a marketing/stylist/CEO guru. As it is, they are no more revolutionary as innovators than Microsoft are, and that is precious little in this persons mind. So guys, forget what everyone else is doing, and concentrate on thinking of new things you could be doing. Then you can call yourself innovative inventors of revolutionary products. (A little humility with regards to mentioning the people who’s innovations you are using wouldn’t go astray either.)

Regardless of which company you give your loyalty, the mobile future is here. If you are not targeting them in your development, you are going to lose customers because this a growth industry that will very likely soon outweigh desktop browsers.

  19. Says:

    One thing I’d really like to say is that before obtaining more computer memory,
    look into the machine in which it would be installed.

    If your machine is usually running Windows XP, foor instance, the
    actual memory threshold is 3.25GB. Putting in a lot more than this
    would basically constitute just a waste. Makee certain that one’s
    motherboard caan handle tthe actual upgrade amount, as well.

  24. библейские историй Says:

    Дорогие Друзья.

    Сейчас я бы хотел поведать немного про история Авраамических религий и также про древняя история Ближнего Востока

    Я думаю Вы искали именно про
    Библейский Моисей и последний царь Мари Зимри-Лим — один и тот же человек

    КНИГА: “Библейский Моисей и последний царь Мари Зимри-Лим — один и тот же человек”.
    USA, “THE EAST: Ancient & Modern”. 2021.
    ISBN: 9781953594990

    Наш сайт – библейские историй по ссылке–odin-i-tot-je-chelovek-613d01ef7899b063c2a3bbf7

    В книге, ссылаясь на 3 независимых источника, написанные в XVIII в.
    до н. э., автор устанавливает, что основные персонажи Торы действительно существовали в реальной истории, и Исход евреев действительно произошёл.
    Ссылаясь на эти источники, автор восстанавливает истинную картину событий, а также и дальнейшую судьбу героев Пятикнижия.
    Согласно этим источникам автор утверждает, что Моисей есть
    последний царь Мари = Зимри-Лим;
    Иофор = Šumu-Epuh (царь Ямхада); «Фараон-угнетатель»=Šamši-Adad
    I (царь Ассирии); «фараон Исхода» = Хаммурапи (царь Вавилона), Кедорлаомер = Иисус Навин;
    страна Мадиям = Ямхад; Харран = Хауран = Batanaea = Paddan-Aram = область Васан, Тростниковое
    море = Мёртвое море, и Исход произошёл в 1759 г.
    до н. э. из Мари — через 2 года после оккупации её Хаммурапи.
    По утверждению автора, Моисей
    был убит насильственной смертью примерно в 1745 г.
    до н. э. на территории современной Иордании, Авраам был
    его младшим современником, и авторство «Бытия» принадлежит Иосифу.

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of
    late, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all Création site web tanger owners and bloggers made
    just right content material as you probably did, the internet will likely
    be much more useful than ever before.
