The long-expected MIUI 6 is finally here! Visually stunning, Stunningly Simple. It's a new chapter for MIUI. And here is a full review for you to get a taste of it.

We believe that it takes more than just good features to create a beautiful design. From orderly workflows, clear hierarchies and fluent responses, we believe that good design exists in every tap, drag and pinch you make. Natural and intuitive, just the way it should be.This is MIUI 6. It's visually stunning, stunningly simple. It's the start of anew chapter.

Had you told me these were shots from some other operating system, I'd have believed you. This is shameless (via Daring Fireball).

I've read the quote over and over during the several last years and I do not see what you're saying in it. I only see Jobs saying that he isn't ashamed of implementing things that others have implemented if he deems them worth it.

Also, I'm going to have to ask how do you define copying an idea and copying a product? I mean, what if the idea is to use certain kinds of colours and general aesthetics that someone else also uses, are you then copying the idea or copying the product? What if the idea revolves around how to prevent accidental use of the device by way of "locking" the input-device and requiring the user to make a simple gesture to "unlock" it? Or what if it revolves around how to market the device? Or what materials to use so it'd appeal to people?

Basically, everything is an idea. Yes, literally everything. You can't say something copies another product without it copying ideas, they are not separable properties, nor can you say that someone/something copies ideas from another product without copying the product.
