PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jobs called Android a 'stolen product', but theft can be a tricky concept when talking about innovation. The iPhone didn't emerge fully formed from Jobs's head. Rather, it represented the culmination of incremental innovation over decades - much of which occurred outside of Cupertino." Nothing particularly new in there for regular OSNews readers, but still handy to have it in one place.

The problem is that in this quote, he was not passionate about what *Apple* do but about what *Google* do.

Not the way to go when you run a business. You only attract people's attention on your competitors. Better quietly take inspiration* from competitor's good features... Then put them together in a product that you feel is better without mentioning it !


* No, I won't use that "steal" word. It has received too much abuse over the last few years. Removing an item from someone's property is stealing, but taking someone else's idea to put them in your own product is taking inspiration.
