Every one has this chicken vs egg and who got there first attitude. When it comes to technology and advancements vs people's well being their should be some law stating forget about who got their first. If you aren't doing anything with it and you aren't the best out their step aside. What if I held 400 patents on creating cancer drugs and I just held on to it and did nothing. Then company B came around with a plan to actually rid the world of cancer but couldn't do anything about it because I hold these patents. And if you cure the world of cancer using any of my patents I'll sue your ass and could give a nickle about anyones happiness except mine. Apple is a forward thinking company they took a few ideas from xerox since they were just sitting on it. Microsoft took Apple's ideas because they wanted to give it to the rest of the world to use because they thought it was great. Who cares about the money it's the betterment of the people and only with success comes true fortune. I could care less if Apple never had one creative idea come from their company. As long as they give us the products we need and want who cares. I can't stand individuals and companies that polish their few marbles and place them in their pocket or on their mantel. If you got something in your bag and you really think you can do something with it without wasting time let it out of the bag for the world to see or give it up already. I just wish Apple Corps. would let this go and let everyone be happy and let Apple keep on improving on it's products. I don't see how Apple Corps. has moved the music industry forward one step in the last 30 years.
