    I did read somewhere Microsoft did pay Apple for allot of it's touch screen technology though true or not ?
    False..! Lol... You probably read that in some Mac forum somewhere, no doubt--the 'Land of Tall Tales and Paul Bunyon.' Touch-screen technology dates back to the 70's & 80's...Apple didn't invent it, nor Microsoft, not even close. You might like to note that several of Apple's attempts to patent touch-screen software in the US have been rejected by the patent office under "Prior Art" grounds, and several more of Apple's attempt to patent what it copied from others are currently under challenge.

    Probably running Windows via Bootcamp, too...;) Ironic that Windows will run natively on any x86 box, including a Mac, but OS X is artificially tied to Apple firmware and cannot be easily installed anywhere else--or legally, actually, as Apple forbids it. (Which is why OS X is no competitor to Windows.) I wish Apple would stop crippling OS X in this way. What a shame that is. Apple will charge a hefty premium for its x86 hardware, which makes the people who think that Apple doesn't charge much if anything for OS X especially comical. Apple's "charge" for OS X is the premium Mac owners pay for their hardware--which in extreme cases amounts to hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Along with crime in general, ignorance in technology decidedly does not pay...;)

    I read the article Microsoft didn't copy Apple as the article says, there is a lot of similarities and I could say the same thing with some Linux distros.

    Where have I heard this before?

    Oh yeah, every time one of those companies does something.
    Apple copied MS or MS copied Apple.

    They both stole ideas from Palo Alto.

    For the WIN! Most of the ideas came from there from the mouse on.

    Ugh...

    Much of ios was inspired literally from Windows Phone since version 6. Much of the current mac os x UI is based off 1984. X Code doesn't have much of a foothold in cross platform development as Universal apps do, where the Windows variant has much more potential than the latter. Continuity literally isn't ANYTHING like Continuum, there's no concept apple had before anyone. Siri wasn't first for apple, it was first before apple even bought it out, much like what they did back in the old mac days with Xerox. PCs don't get "bricked." They can crash, but are able to be recovered easily. If the Spartan browser copied Safari, it should be grateful. apple doesn't sell a lot of PCs, their marketshare reflects that and has for many years. They only broke the smartphone rules in 2007. In my mind, Microsoft has set a pretty dominant trend in the tech world where apple and google are copying Microsoft. You didn't see a removal of skeuomorphic design or google's paper design until Windows Phone 7 or even Zune for that matter were released. Microsoft builds the framework, apple takes credit for it.

    Bullocks if I've ever seen it!

    Google is not copying Microsoft or any other company. There is a claim going through the courts that Google copied Red Hat java api. That case if Google looses could destroy the internet for the U.S. If Red hat won, everybody that uses a computer in some form uses an api that is reversed engineered would be violating the copyright. It would be an economic catastrophe if that happens and Red Hat enforces their copyright.

    I am not saying this will happen, just what I have read.
    I am not trying make anyone mad. I don't think Red Hat would wants to destroy the economy though.

    I'm sorry but Xerox came up with the idea for the GUI interface first in the 70's. Every one copied from them when Xerox didn't follow up on the concepts.
