|In the beginning people made their own computer casings.|
But even the obscure ones have a place in history too. A rough line can be drawn from the Apple Netwon to the PenPoint OS machines to the Psion Series 5 to the HP OmniGo 100 to the Palm Pilot to Windows CE to the iPad. So underneath all the glitz and shine of the iPhones and iPads lies the pedigree of innovation that has always been part of Apple.
It is sad that Apple is now more known for shiny gadgets, slick advertising and questionable / innovative business practices rather than for it's innovative technologies that is really the heart of the company.
