@Zamboni - so you don't actually use google products is what your saying? I continually use google and apple products because they both have their pros/cons. Google has innovative products come out all the time, and when you see something come out at the same time as someone else, which everyone is claiming as google nocking off other companies, its usually something way different.
Let me give you a story as an example: There once was a developer that the iPhone and despised using windows mobile, but liked the openness of what he could do with it compared to black berry and palm. He made a friend at HTC and started with an open source platform to build as an operating system of his own. Word started spreading about this project, and because it was based on open source, well, it gets out. HTC and this developer, built a front end GUI to support it using their awesome phone hardware. The word spread faster and faster and soon, big dudes like apple where peeking in the crack of his doors and windows. Apple comes out with a phone the same month as the developers phone comes out, and has a lot of the same features.
i want you to now ask yourself, who is being dirty? and who is being innovative?
