A computer, the GUI, media player, phone, tablet. Nothing Apple invented, but ideas they took and put their own spin on it.

They don't copy, like for example Samsung, but they use an existing idea as a basis and then create something in their own vision.

When you copy you create something that's the same, when you steal, which isn't meant in a literal sense, you make it your own. This is was Pablo Picasso meant and what Steve Jobs was referring too.

People who hate Apple/Steve, like Thom, only focus on the world "steal", because nobody likes thieves and claim this as proof that Apple copies others, but they ignore the fact that the word "copy" was already used earlier in the quote.

So, to summarise your post:

Apple builds on others != stealing.

Others build on Apple = stealing.

No:

Apple, and probably a number others too, take existing ideas and create products the way they think they should be done.

Most, like Samsung, create me-too products. Less risky, but also more boring.

You are rather poor at 'summarizing' in this instance. Try reading the dude's post again.....slowly this time.
