    I made simple BASIC programs on Apple ][s in school, but even then they were pretty rare outside of academics, and IBM dominated everywhere else, from my very limited memory of that early time in my life. I think I had an IBM AT, then a PS/2 at home during that time.

    I am actually typing right now on the keyboard that came with that PS/2.

    I have a stash of more than a dozen Unicomp (company that bought IBM's tooling for the mechanical keyboards) keyboards that I bought in the late nineties, in anticipation of my PS/2 keyboard eventual demise, but the PS/2 is still going strong, 22+ years later.

    True, but Microsoft is still looking for that "it" mobile device.... and platform.
    Google has Adobe, and Adobe's souring relationship with Apple. It'll be interesting.

    This is nonsense on Apples part. Apple makes nice products. I can't seem to understand why they would be so harsh on the competition. They just recently burned Adobe, as well, by stating that they will not put flash on the iPad nor the iPhone. Eventually they will budge when they see that they no longer have a monopoly on the mobile market, hopefully sooner than later. If I recall, I see plenty of iPhone reference in the Android Market. What's the big deal anyway?

    I wish Google would take Youtube Access away HAHAHAHAHAH, just as a scare tactic. That would totally piss off a lot of iPhone Users and get Apple really scared! I know it'll never happen though since Google isn't Evil like that lol
