So they didnt steal the user interface for the original ipods from Creative then ?

Quite right, it seems they did! Well that seems to have taught them a lesson then, as they have been pretty careful since. :)

-Edit- a link for anyone interested: http://i.tuaw.com/2006/08/23/apple-pays-100m-to-creative-in-patent-lawsuit-settlement/

To give apple their dues, the patent violations were inherited by Apple when they bought PortalPlayer which the iPod is based on :)

Yes i do. But don't worry i know linux and osx are different ;)

I have limited use on osx but have much more on macbuntu so i was just wondering how accurate the 2 are when compared to each other by someone in the know. How accurate is the imitation? Obviously i'm only talking about the mannerisms of the os and not the coding!
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

Meh, an OS is an OS... Little more than a pretty app launcher... I'll use whatever has the Apps I need/want...

My preference for Apple comes from my desire to program in Objective-C which is the language OSX and its derivatives are written in :)

Well put, I used DOSSHELL on my old 486 instead of Windows 3.1 based on this very logic. All the apps I liked ran better in PCDOS anyway. Sadly these days I can't avoid Windows due to studying with the Open University. Such is life.

Yawwn......   Is it racist to call a race racist ?


So the white population in Australia have been isolated for so long now, that they have developed enough physical features to qualify as a race of their own? Very interesting! :hammer:

If you find yourself having difficulty hating Sony... Have a read about the server they used to store their customers Personal Information...

WTF Sony!?!

I love how they tried to blame this on Anon 'distracting' them.  If anything, the DDoS attacks should have had them on high alert and the server should have been secured.
