quote: Prime example; The iPad. Do you think Apple came up with it? Not a chance in hell. The creators of Star Trek; The Next Generation did, in 1986 when they created props for the show. Manufacturers came up with similar ideas in the late 90's, but it wasn't until 2008 did we have technology of a type that was able to emulate such a grand idea envisioned by Gene Roddenberry and his master SciFi crew. Apple has made a very compelling copy of that idea. But it is only that, A COPY! Android is doing much the same. And each are getting better at it.
