doggone Apple and their stupid "modern" styling.

First it was smartphones with minimal hardware buttons... everyone started drinking their coolaid and jumping off the cliff. I like the good old days of four buttons on front, a d-pad, and one or two rocker switches on the side.

Next it is going to be tablets so large that they never go anywhere except from the coffee table to your lap and back.

From the article on APC I'd take that Samsung already put more thought into the form follows function part than Apple did with the iPd given that Samsung's representatives already state what you could use the device for instead of what "magic" the device can do.
