I quote John Gruber (rather John quoting an Apple rep):Apple is not suing Google - they never have. Read the OP - this is a civil suit involving a Safari user who is suing Google. Apple is not involved.
Really? I can cite several formats that are unique to Apple and are in no way open source whatsoever. Namely all of their iWork formats, their database programs (Bento and Filemaker). The list goes on. Apple may use lots of stuff that is open source, but lots and lots of things are closed source and propriety.
True. I imagine that most people probably did a small amount of grumbling and then just said "well I guess I better not upgrade quite yet". Most people I am willing to bet were not going to throw the baby out with the bathwater so to speak unless they were already looking for a reason to explore other platforms already.
I can provide lots of cites that back up the notion that the pyramids were not built by slaves. The history you cite is simply wrong.
How about this cite from a very reputable archeologist.
Here is another cite with lots of cites backing him up:And this guy too...
I can go on and on here.
Yes, but that doesn't mean it is a good investment or anything. He could have been making a pie in the sky type of statement. One big problem is that you have to sell competing devices - something that Apple would never allow. I don't even think the FTC would allow such a thing to happen either for competition reasons.
