    My fault. It was so outlandish and ridiculous I thought it had to be.

    Come on guys - step away from the Kool-aid stand...



    Apple's entire original OS was "inspired" by Xerox's UI- everyone knows that. But you don't see Xerox suing Apple today.

    The "widget" interface, though used by Apple, is pretty much everywhere now - even without Google.



    And REALLY now, would you REALLY want Steve to spend all $45B of (then) Apple's war chest on going after Google? As successful as Steve was, the board would fire him (AGAIN) over that.



    Tim's management is beginning to impress me personally - he is addressing issues Steve largely ignored (dividends, worker conditions, cop orate dividends).



    Steve was a great product visionary, but I have a feeling, Cook is a better managing CEO.

    Nearly identical

    Almost verbatim

    Extremely similar



    These are all perfectly valid methods of describing how close they compare with each other.

    The bolded part... you need to learn more about this.



    The rest I can agree with for the most part.

    "/s" is commonly appended to posts to denote sarcasm. I think it's a play on the way BBCode is formatted (For example, quoting is ended by /QUOTE in brackets).

    A year before Apple went to Xerox they started working on a powerful graphics engine (later became known as QuickDraw). The idea to use that engine to create a graphical user interface was inspired by Xerox. Not the "entire OS". Not only that, Apple paid to talk with Xerox's engineers, and made it clear that they were going to make a consumer product based on those ideas. And not only that, hired a few of the original engineers from Xerox. At the time Xerox was not interested in a consumer computer, but targeted the enterprise... they wanted to create a paperless office. Furthermore, Xerox DID sue Apple.

    So Larry, you're a liar, a plagiarist, and a complete moron to boot. Count me out, I've now lost all trust in Google's products and services, so sad for a once admired company.

    Hellacool: I think your comments disparaging a deceased person who wasn't a murderous psychopath concretely shows that you are NOT a good father. I feel sorry for your kid and anyone else that is forced to interact with you IRL.

    If the truth about Steve'o hurts, maybe you should re-look the person whose ground you worship. You can not argue my comments.

    As a father you set a terrible example for your children by dancing on someone's grave. Ya, you've got a reason to brag
