Fascinating little article here by a site I am checking out more and more.

http://www.engadget.com/2007/07/05/apples-little-problem-with-ripping-off-artists/

There is something to be said of being big enough and rich enough to get away with ripping off people like this.

There have been numerous stories and typically I would say, well they're just after money. However, in this case, with such clear evidence, I am re-thinking that philosophy.

A clear history of wanton disregard for the work of other people.

Not really surprising.
Apple doesn't seem much like a good company to me.
Although, when you release the same product 7 times with each one, a tad better than the previous one, How can you go wrong!

"I play, I could", in fact I am infringing upon their copyright twice in this statement!

Soooo, the company that is known for soooo much artsy fartsy innovation can't even dream up their own artsy fartsy commercials.

iMidget?

I'd consider buying one, but only if it came with a click-wheel and a touch screen and I could put it on vibrate :smoker:

Speaking of iRIPOFF. No one mentioned the ugly, confrontational attempt by @pple to steal the name iPhone from it's registered owners.

They do seem to have a problem with intellectual property, unless of course it is their siftware...

I still think Zerox should own them! Mouse, GUI, etc. direct steal.

no, the original MacOS when the mac first came out was ripped from Xerox.. microsoft later stole it from Mac ;)

OSX is based on the old Mach and Next kernels mostly.
