    I suspect we will hear that on the same day HP publicly acknowledges they got the idea from Apple's implementation, along with Pinch/Zoom, and a host of other features.

    Perhaps but only after Apple acknowledges they got the idea from Palm's implementation, along with the grid of icons, mute switch, and a host of other features.

    Perhaps, but only after Palm admits the inspiration they got from the Newton.

    C'mon now, Apple has yet to admit they stole the whole GUI idea from Xerox and DRI.

    All I'll add to this thread is this: One thing that no one is copying from webOS is LAG.

    Carry on.

    Ewww.
    You just didn't catch the reference. That shows your age.

    I do, and nowadays, that shows my age.

    Is there really a thread about copying ideas in a tech company?


    News flash...not every idea is going to be some revolutionary innovative thing...sometimes ideas are copied because they just make sense.

    The OP (me) has made that same statement several times. The thread really wasn't about copying. Copying was used, so we could discuss Envy. Pre was used because it is a Pre/WebOS forum. PreNess was used because they're keeping the name, and the Envy is all about being Pre-like. I didn't use Pre-like because Pre-like Envy is no where near as funny as PreNess Envy.

    I really like the Law and Order TV shows, including L&O Special Victims Unit. You probably know, each episode starts with In the criminal justice system, sexually-based offenses are considered especially heinous... and each time, I say "Awww, he said heinous"

    I know, I know - dumb, immature, silly, but it still makes my wife laugh.

    But, we all really know the "other" users come back because they're suffering from ...

    PreNess Envy

    I was going to make a comment about why she loves me, but I figured totally ruining the opening to L&OSFU so that you're going to focus on "heinous" each time you hear it was a bad enough mental image to scar you with.
