Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

Well, if only those other companies ripped off Apple AND added polish of their own. Most copies (like tablets and phones) are crap, the ones that aren't aren't because their very good copies.

Sure they add some features an iPhone/iPad doesn't have, but the overall user experience is less than on an iDevice.

Apple's stuff is part of a general plan, while other companies just try to bring something to market that sells and when it doesn't sell as well they abandon it.

WP7 and webOS are examples that it is possible to do your own thing and not copy Apple.
