Is it truly 1984?

In 1984, Apple had a commercial played at the Super bowl that made commercial history.

Years later, at the Super bowl, this Motorola Xoom commercial makes obvious reference to the 1984 commercial.  While its awesome I can’t say I’m going to go out and get a Xoom.  I kinda still want an ipad, even if that will leave me in the sea of sameness that is 1984. And too bad Motorola isn’t the only company making digs at Apple commercials right now. Tmobile got there first with the I’m a mac and pc campaign they’ve been on.

How do you like this Motorola commercial? Thing Apple turned into the bad guys from 1984 with its dominance over the mp3 and tablet markets? In 1984 Apple was the challenger that brought change to the market. Today who doesn’t refer to an mp3 as an ipod?  Or refers to a tablet as an ipad? Is it truly 1984 and can Motorola do what Apple did in 1984?

Now trending, this is i, and the curse of the copycat

There’s too much copying and mass production of the same thing going on and this will lead to the curse of the copycat in which everything will be the same, but produced by different companies.  I for one like originality.  See what’s not.

Like the apple invented the lamp and etc.  And this makes a good analogy for the Iraq war too.

Yahoo‘s got now trending like its twitter.

                          Nexus One                                                               Iphone

There’s igoogle and its copy of the iphone with the nexus one.

Kodak’s got a flip camera and so does someone else.

Where does the copying end? Certainly not with generic medicine or store brand foods. Maybe I should start referring to everything personal as I, the ifriend, the i enemy since there are so many iproducts and programs and not all of them belong to apple.
