    They're actually quite a bit different; you're just seeing the small version, and it's harder to make out the details. Here's the two icons in full size:

    The trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

    Cool, thanks for the pics. They are different...and quite a bit the same. Looks like Apple took an icon, and added some flair to it. And it IS a different shade of blue! I was right! I was right...I ...was...oh, sorry.

    And I agree it is a bunch of nonsense to be at a place where discussions like this occur. But IMHO it does seem that Apple is ravenous about attacking others who might take a little apply item and 'improve' on it, but when they do it, they seem to get by with out such legal attacks. This discussion is just a reflection back at Apple...a 'physician heal thyself' moment for them you might say. No big thing...but it is annoying, again IMHO.

    Sounds like a Lawyer-ish argument.
    You may want to check out Apple's iChat, which has been around since 2002.

    Bottom Line:
    Everyone copies everyone.

    Palm 'copied' Newton
    iPhone copied Palm
    Palm copied iPhone

    Android copied everyone
    Everyone somehow copied Android

    It goes all directions. Someone see's a great idea and says "why don't we have that?"
