Copytunes…


So, wasn’t it Apple who claimed that Microsoft is copying almost all features from Mac OS X? Where’s the Innovation Apple when it comes to your own products?

Almost a year ago a guy named “Jonathan del Strother” released a nice tool called “Coverflow”. Now Apple bought the Coverflow Intellectual property. It’s common sense in the IT industry to do such things. But Apple is one of the few companies that blame other when they are doing that…

“We are pleased to announce that all CoverFlow technology and intellectual property was recently sold to Apple. It has been incorporated into the latest version of iTunes.”

    Apple BOUGHT a produkt from a single programmer/ minor software group.

    MS COPIED a produkt from his competitor. (which may be a “minor software group” in MS’ eyes)

    No excuse, but a difference!
