Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

If stealing involves giving a large amount of stock to the "victim" in return for being allowed access to, and therefore develop, the WIMP interface - sure. What Microsoft then did was more akin to stealing I'm afraid.

Ideas should not be something you can steal. Everybody has ideas and a lot of people have the same ideas. It is when how and where you make it that makes the difference. If everybody makes a product based on the same idea how would you choose between them?
