Oh come on, we've known for years that Jobs thought it was fine for his company to pinch ideas from others but no-one should do it from them.

Yes, I know it's not done to speak ill of the dead, but that man was just about the ultimate hippocrite.

Of course Apple is allowed to copy!

They are Apple, the most important company in the world, and thus exempt
from the rules.

Pardon my sarcasm.

As a previous poster comments:
Does this suggest that they think that it's OK for Apple to copy the ideas of others but nobody else can do the same thing?
Of course not. Because that would be copying!

You have to give the Apple designers credit ...

They usually pick a good design to (adopt|steal|copy|invent).
They didn't make the mistake of picking Microsoft Kin.
