Rather, it represented the culmination of incremental innovation over decades - much of which occurred outside of Cupertino."

You're right. There's plenty of instances where Apple has used other's ideas. I do think a lot of his anger stemmed from Rubin being on the board and then telling Google what he learned. I'd feel slighted too, but that's business.

People keep making this argument but Rubin was never in the iPhone meetings because of a very clearly expressed conflict of interests.
