DammitIForgotMyLogin: Huh. I figured Disney.
rooftop235: Thought this was going to be an Apple bashing thread.Paad, portable media player, etc
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Whereas, Apple would not exist today were it not for a) Xerox PARC and b) Microsoft.
indarwinsshadow: Who the hell uses torrents. True, I only started looking deeper into darknet, but torrents? Christ why not limewire.
HeartBurnKid: You're going to have to be more specific, subby.
Pud: Thomas Edison??
meanmutton: Pud: Thomas Edison??Edison was much more like Bill Gates -- buy up the scientists and patents and then squeeze every penny out of them.
Surool: Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Whereas, Apple would not exist today were it not for a) Xerox PARC and b) Microsoft.They didn't copy anything from Microsoft, but they did get money from Bill once. It isn't the same thing.

ArcadianRefugee: Copy and steal, huh?
AntonChigger: meanmutton: Pud: Thomas Edison??Edison was much more like Bill Gates -- buy up the scientists and patents and then squeeze every penny out of them.Bill Gates didn't round up stray animals and have them publicly electrocuted to discredit his rivals and advertise the "dangers" of using ac technology.
Glitchwerks: indarwinsshadow: Who the hell uses torrents. True, I only started looking deeper into darknet, but torrents? Christ why not limewire.What.cd kicks the asses of darknet and Usenet.
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: The cash infusion from Microsoft was what I was referring to, primarily, with that part. I think most business analysts at the time agreed that there was a significant probability of Apple's demise without that cash infusion.
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: As for adopting anything technical from Microsoft, well, let's see. If memory serves, no one had anything like the Device Manager until MS introduced it in Win 95.
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: I would say that there is very little doubt that Apple got a lot of its GUI from Xerox PARC
BullBearMS: Bill Gates did hire the guy at Digital Equipment Corporation who created DEC's most important OS and have him bring over the code for the more modern version he and his team were working on.Then they released Windows NT which just happened to be based on exactly that code.Literally, Windows is based on stolen source code.

Lokasenna: I'm shocked that the article wasn't about Behringer. I mean, I like their stuff, but I don't think they have a single original product.
