I have a Nexus 7 (Google Tablet) that I use for everything. I won a new iPad in a contest, and after the excitement wore off, I really can't think of any reason to use it over the Nexus 7.

When Jobs retired, Apple went in the toilet, and their stock tanked. He was the company, all they are is a second rate over priced tech company without his ability to coolify every product. It wasn't that he came up with anything new, it wasn't that he innovated or even changed the game with anything. Its that he was good at spotting what would be cool to people and marketed it really well.

Every product Apple put out was already out there with someone else, they just packaged it better and sold it better. Kind of like the Beatles.
