When Steve Jobs introduced the iMac; he gave 5 references for the "i" First, and foremost, was "internet," and second was "individual," which fits nicely for the iPad. He also listed "instruct," "inform," and "inspire."
We now have 4 iPhones (3 used as phones, the other just on wifi), an iPod and a Mac.
I guess that puts me in the silly 9% club ++. To think I am soon to buy an iPad. Just haven't figured which one we want.
I must say none of these devices has ever locked up.
I can't say that for my Blackberry (work phone), numerous PCs and a "Palm something" that didn't take 6 months before it got stuffed in a drawer.
Any of you PCers interested in a Vista laptop the just collects dust? The DW has a net book she doesn't even turn on because it takes too long to load up and then even longer to get on the net and load pages.

But I always thought it was 'internet.' And it's a lower case i (as you typed), as opposed to what you see often on here.
It is not that debatable. That cited author got it wrong in his assumption the iPod started the naming convention. It started in 1998 with the all inclusive teal colored teardrop design iMac. Apple stated at the time that it stood for Internet with new marketing emphasis of delivering support over the Internet as one justification of declaring the floppy drive dead. After that it just became a marketing product tie in for them I suspect with emphasis on personal use as in Individual.

I am one of those that does not own an Apple product in my home. But I will say this for Apple. Every time that the Iphone/Ipod OS has been updated, Apple has provided the update at no charge to all of their models and versions. This is cannot be said for Android. I recently got an Android small tablet with the understanding that when the new OS came out, it would be updated - but Samsung is now saying, probably not, so lots of luck. At least Apple knows how to treat their customers.

Have you looked for the availability of a 3rd. party ROM upgrade? My HTC Droid stopped development at Android 2.1. So I flashed Cyanogen Mod Android 2.3 Rom, and it works great. Android 4 ICS Rom releases are expected to be available for initial devices shortly.
