Legal Well well well well well, paint me red and call me a girly scout. I've been saying for months now that there's much more collaboration between Apple and Microsoft than their respective fanboys want to believe, especially when it comes to fighting Google and Android, which both companies partly do via patent suits. More evidence for this has emerged today. Remember CPTN Holdings, the consortium led by Microsoft which bought that bundle of patents from Novell? Which other companies are part of this consortium? EMC. Oracle. Apple.

Don’t tell me the iPhone has not completely reshaped the design and UI of smart phones


It hasn't. There is zero innovative about Apple. You've fallen under the RDF so prevalent around Steve Jobs.

Fact is that everything ever done by Apple ever merely being refined copies of the hard work done by others before them, hailing small modifications as major breakthroughs, new variations on existing technologies as turning points and so on. Apple is simply one big hyperbole. You also forget all the production problems with the iPhone and all the usability flaws - but they don't fit in your perfect Appleworld, do they? ;)
