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.

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.


First it was Schmidt that was on the board and you failed to mention that Schmidt was excluded from any board meetings that included secret products including iPhone. Please stop repeating John Gruber's lies here. People on OSnews know better.
