A new series of stamps of Canada Post released on August 17 include four Canadian inventions including BlackBerry. The other Canadian inventions include eclectic oven, cardiac pacemaker, and electric wheelchair.
Thomas Ahearn invented the world’s first electric oven in 1892. The cardiac pacemaker was invented by Dr. John Hopps in 1950. George J. Klein invented electric wheelchair in 1952. Blackberry Smartphone was introduced by Research in Motion in 1999 and it has evolved to be the most popular all-in-one digital communications device.
Canada Post honored the inventor of telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, in one of the stamps released in 2000.
Microsoft tried to show it’s confidence on its upcoming Windows Phone 7 operating system by hosting a mock funeral ceremony of it’s rival phones including Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s Blackberry.
In the ceremony, hearses for the iPhone and the BlackBerry were carried along with Microsoft employees dressed up in Windows Phone 7 garb. The Microsoft employees even performed the "Thriller Dance" (see video, below) hoping the Windows Phone 7 to bury the competition.
Android’s start was not that smooth as compared to iPhone but Google picked-up with multi-touch and attractive handsets. Multi-carrier and multiple handset manufactures (from Motorolla, HTC, Samsung etc.) gives Android a clear advantage to iPhone’s single hardware and a single carrier.
Yes, iPhone still has a greatest advantage on its pocket, the App Store with more than 150,000 apps, when compared to about 50,000 Android apps. But, strict and inconsistent approval system is scaring away the developers.
Do you think the Android’s ‘Open’ system will win over the ‘Closed’ iPhone system in the long run?
