So, where are the iPad wannabes? Looking for viable tablet operating systems like Apple’s iOS gem
[Via MacDailyNews]

The lack of viable tablet operating systems is one of the biggest reasons for the slow rollout of iPad competitors…


The secret of Apple’s success is its operating system – an extremely adaptable one that has permitted them to use it for every device they want, rather than having to almost recreate the OS for every use. As someone in the article said. “iOS is unique in that it scales down to smartphones and up to tablets, but there’s no other OS that’s uniquely suited to tablets”

I’ve heard that if you toss the new iPhone into a fire, the antenna seen along the outside edge glows with a strange but beautiful script that has been translated to read:

One OS to rule the pad, One OS to lap them,
One OS to make the call and on the cellphone wrap them.*

Could the antenna actually be a Ring of Power?

*Okay, it was the best I could do on short notice.Tolkien had a lot more time.

But wouldn’t it be cool if you could engrave some nice elvish onto the antenna of an iPhone?

  1. haha, that gave me a good chuckle as I read it on my Macbook Pro while calling someone on my iPhone.

    Your observation is spot on, the hardware is great but the OS is brilliant.
