Et Tu, Brute?

With all the hoopla around Apple these days, I find myself submitting comments here and there; which comments amount to the observation that Apple puts its effort not into innovation, but honing design and hype to an existing tech. The iPod was a late entry to MP3. The iPad was hardly the first tablet. And so on.

Here in the AnandTech review of the iPad 4 we find this observation:
Apple has been quick to dismiss Microsoft's attempts to bring touch to notebooks, but there's a lot of history around Apple laughing at something only to bring forth its own take later on.

It's going to be amusing to see whether Apple can continue to sell me-too products at such premium prices.
