I see what you're saying. I'm just bitter. :PAlso, though I'm not an anti-Apple hater, I don't particularly like the company's practices. From what I read, they recently removed all "widgety" apps from their store without any prior notice. So apps that were previously approved are abruptly removed and developers were blatantly disrespected. Allegedly it's because Apple plans to have their own widget service and don't want third-party developers stealing their thunder. Understandable, but still. Aaaand I suppose this is beside the point of this news post anyways.

Not all that surprising. Apple's been doing stuff like this since the 80's. Back then they even tried suing a couple of other software companies for using a GUI claiming "clicking and dragging windows" was infringing on their copyright. Instead of the App Store it was America OnLine; the only place you could get freeware or shareware after being reviewed by Apple. Sometimes popular apps would suddenly be pulled and a few weeks later Apple would come out with their own version. They actually used to be the "bad guys" for a whileThe joke back then was that there were two ways knew someone had written a good app: Either Microsoft assimilated them or Apple sued them.
