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.

This is the stupidest argument if I ever heard one....

You might as well as say that NOBODY innovates anything as all ideas come from somewhere. How weak! Talk about being in true denial here. At least give credit where it's due or go ahead and put your head back in the sandhole.

While I agree that all companies (but B&N) involved in this clusterfuck behave pitiful, I want to point out that the article is NOT saying that Apple, LG or whoever is not innovating when they put old things together in new ways.

The article is saying that by Apple's use of the word "theft" Apple is a thief also. It's the old proverb of a kettle calling a pot black. Or, IOW, Apple's accusations ring hollow because they do the same damn thing they want others to not do. Do as I say, not as I do. And that's just sad.
