Jim Hillibish: No need for an Apple iPad? Buy it now anyway


Here’s the shocker. The first tablet PC was introduced by Microsoft in 2001. OK, it was pen-based, but it was the start. It floundered because nobody understood its purpose, which remains gray-area.

They renamed it a “slate,” but in the PC world, we want our keyboards. That’s the genius of the convertible, a laptop computer with a screen that detaches and becomes a tablet.

Apple’s OK with credit for inventing the form factor. They did the same thing with other technology. The mouse, the personal computer, the iPod and the iPhone come to mind. Apple doesn’t invent, it clones, redesigns, adds sleekness (“Apple panache”) and calls in the marketing department, then the Brinks truck.  (Source: Jim Hillibish, CantonRep.com)

Hi,
Generally yes. I have been battling spam on a daily basis for the past year. The amount of spam has been tens of times the amount of real posts.

Further the amount of real posts have been less than one a week. So unless there's a need to have the forum from the users, I'll leave it this way.

I have been lurking for some time and have watched your ongoing battle with the spammers. Thanks for leaving the forum up as a resource...and sad to see you go.

A Hui Ho
