The long-expected MIUI 6 is finally here! Visually stunning, Stunningly Simple. It's a new chapter for MIUI. And here is a full review for you to get a taste of it.

We believe that it takes more than just good features to create a beautiful design. From orderly workflows, clear hierarchies and fluent responses, we believe that good design exists in every tap, drag and pinch you make. Natural and intuitive, just the way it should be.This is MIUI 6. It's visually stunning, stunningly simple. It's the start of anew chapter.

Had you told me these were shots from some other operating system, I'd have believed you. This is shameless (via Daring Fireball).

Ah well let's get this out here for the record, so we can all feel either really smug now or completely misunderstood depending on your perspective:

"Picasso had a saying -- 'good artists copy; great artists steal' -- and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas." - Steve Jobs '96.

"Steve had a saying.. " - Xiaomi '14

Oh dear - that stupid trope again. It's easy to misquote by taking a sentence out of context, and in this case the out of context sentence has become a sort of tech urban legend.


You only say it's stupid because it takes you down two pegs.

So the oft used quote is about about bringing parts of other disciplines, from literature, art and culture, into computer science and product design. It is not about copying other products in part or in total.


It DOESN'T MATTER that it's not about copying other products. It's about copying other IDEAS. He's still copying other people's ideas, whether or not they are in the computer industry or not. Ideas don't become original just because you add "with a computer" to the end of it. Ideas don't become original just because you bought it off someone else and marketed it better.

Hell, you're even on record confusing patents and copyright together because you think ideas shouldn't be allowed to be copied. Your attempt to excuse your hypocrisy shoots yourself in the foot. You just proved Steve Jobs copies ideas, not that there needed to be any more proof.

This is Steve Jobs saying:
"We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas."
"Good artists copy; great artists steal."

This is Steve Jobs, after visiting Xerox, saying: 'I was so blinded'

The interviews to Steve Jobs come from a documentary called "Triumph of the Nerds" which chronicles the rise of the PC beginning in the 1970s and continues through the IBM PC and Apple Macintosh.
