    Wow, that's quite a lot of market sector for one company to have tied up.

    Havent we seen an article similar to this in the past 6 months? Seems a little unfair, but first come first serve... early bird gets the worm sort of thing, huh?
  4. Is i Pad better than Droid (any versions)? I have seen both used but do not own either. You best review as a user (data), apps, etc. Appreciate input. Looking for best user friendly. Tomboy

    Apple controls even more tech writers than market share.

    Well, actually we have and quite a bit more recently than 6 months..... If touchscreens were a commodity traded on the NYSE then Apple would be running afoul of the SEC. As it stands now, they're walking a fine line between legal and illegal pursuant to anti- trust violation. The whole affair is commodities manipulation.
