Damn, I’m so fucking tired of hearing from the moronic tech geek IT community every time Apple rolls out something that they didn’t invent it.
First of all, who gives a shit. Apple (generally) isn’t in the invention business.
What Apple does is takes a look at the market, sees what’s out there and determines what they can vastly improve from its origins. Very smart, by the way.
The first in a market is usually the first loser. Apple cannily avoids this mistake and usually turns out products that are 5x better for less than 1.25x the price.
The tech idiot community always has this attitude that if Apple didn’t invent something, it didn’t have anything at all to do with it.
Improving something vastly and/or making it where it doesn’t require a PhD in computer science to use counts for nothing, apparently.
