eas81: Perducci: Maybe it was one of the old Samsung Xerox devices that Apple copied.

History of the GUI


They bought it with proper cash money, unlike MS.

Yep, there's no God. Every member of the general public knows who Steve Jobs is. Far fewer know who Steve Wozniac is - and fewer still know about the genius that was displayed at Xerox PARC.

If you'd like to
"Read More About It"
I recommend Dealers of Lightning by Michael Hiltzik. One of my all-time favorite books.

HotIgneous Intruder: $60K?
The burglar got two laptops and a pair of sneakers?


Yes, the headline was funny. But, changing the words around and retelling it doesn't make it any funnier.

Apple bought access to PARC. Xerox execs didn't realize they had lightning in a bottle. Its not that apple stole, its that xerox gave it away.

Burglar: Hey man, these cuffs are too tight!
Officer: Don't hold your wrists that way.

Hey, with all the ideas apple has liberally borrowed or at least blocked off from other developers with patents, it seems only fair.

Quotizmo: "Flattery refused to discuss details about the case."

Yes, we all know, Flattery will get you nowhere.
