Hardware, Embedded Systems Speaking of HP, the company replied to a question if they copied Apple for their latest ultrabook, the Envy Spectre XT. "There are similarities in a way, not due to Apple but due to the way technologies developed. Apple may like to think that they own silver, but they don't. In no way did HP try to mimic Apple. In life there are a lot of similarities." It's an ultrabook, a category of laptops defined by Intel. Coincidentally, Intel also developed the internals of the MacBook Air. These products are looking relatively similar because their internals have been designed by the same damn company. Get over it.

HP aren't stealing, They don't have the talent to do so. HP are doing a copy, a really bad copy.

If you copy without adding anything new you are borrowing, you are not adding value. You are destroying value. That's what HP do and It's a shame.

When you steal, you make the product your own and create from that. You add your vision, your ideas: you add value. That's what Microsoft did with Windows for example or what Apple did with iPhone.

They've stolen good ideas from here and there and created something new. That's a really good thing. What HP do is not.
