I don't even own an iPad and I really dislike that image. Bill Gates wasn't even the first person that introduced the idea of tablets. The first commercially available touchscreen tablet PC was the GRiDPad in 1989, which was so successful that it was used in the US Army for a time, so I wouldn't say no one cared about the idea of tablets in prior.

Apple also had launched a tablet-based computer before Microsoft in 1993 called the Apple Newton, beginning development in 1987, so they didn't steal the idea from Gates like what people think. The Newton project did die however for most of the same reasons most of the other tablets generally failed at - offering a type of portability and performance that would make you want to use it over a standard laptop.

When the iPad was first announced, it had really mixed reviews, including the lot of people who mocked it, calling it a an iPhone for people with fat fingers, so it definitely wasn't as hyped as what the image is making it out to be. What made it so successful was that it was a tablet that finally had a friendly UI (albeit strict system customization compared to Android devices today), a good amount of speed, a much larger range of application support, low weight, high portability, and a modest price tag [at the time anyways, since earlier tablets (including Microsoft's Tablet PC) were easily over $1000].

I don't believe the Surface was a stolen idea like what people uneducated in the history of tablets think, they merely started bringing their development of tablets to life again after seeing the huge tablet market Apple made with the iPad.

Do I believe Apple is the best company ever? Hell no, but I do believe they at least deserve some credit for making an impact on the tablet and smartphone market to what it is today. I don't care if you dislike or joke about them (I like some of the original jokes), but at least don't make bullshit facts.

I'll be taking my red thumbs from the apple-hating bandwagon now.

How? The Tablet PC didn't sell well because it had too many problems that were unresolved like the high price, low performance, and little developer support for applications to name a few, while the Game Boy was the highest-selling handheld portable console on the market at its time with a reasonable price and high-quality games.
User avatar #50 - erpi (07/22/2014) [-]
Because it was new and needed lots of improvements before it could become what it is today.
A gameboy can't come near the performance of say a PSP or WiiU, but without the gameboy, there wouldn't be a PSP or WiiU in the first place.

Note the 8 years it took apple to get it right. They had 8 years worth of tech to make it better. If you know anything about Moore's law, then you"ll know that the apple tablet has proccessors with 512 times more transistors then the first windows tablet.

As I explained in comment 42, Gates wasn't revolutionizing anything with the Tablet PC, as he wasn't the first guy to come up with the tablet by a long shot. It wasn't good for its time, and newer models didn't fix its problems, which is why it wasn't popular.

The Game Boy made a leap forward in handheld gaming because while it wasn't the first handheld system with interchangeable cartridges, it had a low price, a huge battery life, and a wide selection of games (including Tetris pre-packaged with it). It did well for its time and created a huge market, which are the key differences between the Game Boy and the Tablet PC.

How is it the same? Bill's tablet wasn't as user friendly as the Apple iPad so it wasnt popular. The gameboy had fun games and was popular.

Plus the fact that 90% of decent apps are Apple-exclusive

Far closer to being true to the android market due it it being far more open and less restrictive.

Iphones have good usability. They work well and smoothly, and are aesthetically great. They're still nowhere near worth what they cost.
