Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The new iPad has already been around long enough in the rest of the world to stir up trouble.

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of Apple´s many idiosyncrasies is the way in which they change: Always quick to kill and slow to adopt. Examples of this behavior dot Apple´s history, from killing the iPod Mini (one of their best-selling products) just a year and a half after its introduction to adding USB 3.0 two years after other companies started employing the technology in their machines.

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online There´s an unfortunate situation that´s been created with the rising popularity of Apple´s iPhone. The Cupertino company has sold millions and millions of these smartphones to millions and millions of people.
