Agree. I think that conceptually, Copland has been realized in Mac OSX. The irony of these other hardware "diversions" listed in the article is that they nearly killed Apple. Everyone was focused on cool gadgets. Meanwhile, the OS languished. Theres a parallel with the ephemeral IPhone Mac Users pine for today. I think what everyone doesn't understand about the Iphone is that it's not just a device, but an OS, too. In that space, Apple will be competeing with Palm, Symbian, and WinMobile, who all have working OSs in devices currently marketed. Unless they have an OSX Mobile OS ready to go and that has at least all the features/functionality of the others, I don't see how the IPhone is viable.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
