Bad Apple

I do not like to add to echo chambers, but Apple's blatant rip-off of Konfabulator requires some form of public outrage among those who value original creativity in software development. Russell say it best. I am not disputing a company's right to redo some cool ideas developed independently, but given Apple's PR campaign about Redmond copying their ideas this is as two-faced as you can get.

And yes, I own a few G4/G5's, so I am allowed to have an opinion.
