When Apple produce an Apple Coffee Maker we can then say they may have copied braun

I enjoy a public flaying as much as the next person, and majortom1981's post is devoid of perspective, but at least read the entire thread before making the same point as half a dozen previous replies. Good heavens, this is like a reddit thread.

A friendly reminder: Integrating things =/= Inventing
Look at Apple's patent portfolio. It takes actual talent and a helluva lot of attention to detail to, say, develop a method of precision laser cutting hardened aluminum on a massive scale, while retaining profitability. Even when the majority of components are manufactured by other companies, Apple is known for having to invent new methods of treatment and assembly at such tight tolerances. Inventing is more than just making a new product category, like light bulbs.
See Pixar for a comparative study. Do you think they do all that shit in Blender? No, they invent new plugins and programs to roll their own fur, water, and other 3D sims.
