Usually Apple is the one that sets the standard, everyone just waits for them to release great ideas and then piggy back on them with alternate, some times more advanced only because they have more iterations of a particular product in an industry eg: phones.
This is how competition works, one person does one thing, another improves, and another, and another.
Somehow, people have come to the conclusion that no one has any unique ideas, and that Apple is the only one that changes anything.
I challenge you to look at PalmOS and tell me that iOS isn't just an improved version of it.
Also, that slide to unlock feature was an app I had on my old Palm.
Apple's marketing is superb, and it's scary how well it's worked on the masses.Edited by SectorNine50 - 7/27/11 at 11:01am
