If you look at the picture above you will see Bill Gates holding Microsoft’s PC Tablet back in 2002. People really didn’t pay much attention to it and so the world moved on. Fast forward to 2010 and the reveal of the first iPad. The iPad becomes a national sensation and other companies have been scrambling ever since, building sub-par tablets to try and tease consumers back to the PC side of the force. Then we come to today, where news has revealed that Apple is trying to patent technology that is basically an iGoogle iGlass.
It’s really unfortunate that Apple is as corrupted as this case makes them seem to be. Things are bad enough now that Apple has dominance over the tablet market, although that could be halted soon pending the success of the Windows 8 tablet.
Apple, either get your own ideas or GTFO.
