Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

But then again everybody (most of them anyway) are upset if Microsoft dears to innovate in Windows. Everybody are happy to use the concepts put in place in 1995. But if Apple uses the same UI concept for 5 years then it is already stale and old and out of fashion?


Rubbish.

The problem isn't with Microsoft innovating, the problem is with Microsoft removing freedoms and useful functionality and forcing round-about ways of doing things in the name of innovation. The complaints are about Metro's short-comings, not about Microsoft trying to innovate, and you seem to be terribly confused about that. You do realize that one can appreciate development and innovation while still criticizing the short-comings, yes?

That seems to be Apple's way of innovating. So the article author was right, but the double standard goes the other way. It's a case of projection.

Don't try to twist what I said. It's not innovation when Apple does it nor is it innovation when Microsoft does it.
