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 think you are infringing on Apple's copyright there Gonaads :p

"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.

iRipoff - it's the most "revolutionary" ripoff you've ever seen.
Redmond, start your photocopiers!

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.

I thought it was microsoft who stole xerox's code, not apple ... OSX is open source linux if you think about it.

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.

Actually if you think about it, it is not.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
