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.

The apple strategy failed, because it's one company. One company that provides the OS, one company that provides the hardware. One company versus everybody else will fail eventually. Patenting basic concepts such as a gesture or the "general look" of an interface is ridiculousness.

Let other kids play and let the better business model succeed and the consumer will win.

The entire basis of all these arguments is that "Well, they should be innovating! Coming up with there own stuff!" Sometimes an invention is an idea critical to our human development. How do you improve the wheel? If there was a way to improve it, are we going to let ONE company dominate until something better comes along?

The worst part of this article is that your portraying this as "stealing" yet your not even mentioning if this is something that can be stolen. Your poisoning the well here.
