BUT; 'compatibility' is polysemantic: what is compatible with what Mr 
Jobs envisages for the iPhone/iPad may
not encompass all the things that are otherwise compatible.

I have a pupil (she is 10 years old) who is the proud owner of an iPhone 
(her Mum and Dad are bank
managers), yet here Mum and Dad have not paid their school bills to me 
for the last 3 months
(approx 25% the price of an iPhone). So, I have my own set of meanings 
for 'compatible' . . .  :)
