    Apple's ego is comical, just like their products.
    Tablets more powerful and more feature rich then an Ipad released long before the ipad did, but most people couldn't understand them, just like today.

    They need things simplified so they can use them, hence the ipad.

    Think apple will stop suing anything and everything now?

    I couldn't type that without a little chuckle...

    Hopefully though, this is a wake-up call to them.
  9. oh noes Apple lost again, I feel so bad for them...NOT.
  10. lol Hey crapple, u mad?
  11. Interesting that Apple is suing over the use of 'iPad' when they don't even own the word. The original copyright is owned by Cisco from what i recall and Apple has an agreement of some type, I'm sure financially to use the name.
  12. You're thinking of iOS not iPad. IOS is the name of Cisco's Internet Operating System.
