A totally ignorant comment given the context.

Sony WAS once THE electronics company, granted they have lost focus and marketshare due to their arrogance - but it is a sincere complement to compare Apple to Sony. Let's just hope Apple doens't fall prey to the same factors that hurt Sony.

how do you know what sony does to its monkeys?
seriously though, there are allot of skin deep similarity's, but not much after that.
sony made the Walkman, but that was pretty much the only major innovation on their part.
however apple brought GUI and mice to the computer industry, pushed (and continues to push) digital music services forward, and even make everyone put i before every product, even lights.
on an unrelated note, check this out.
would be a good ad campaign to go along with the old "think different" campaignhttp://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p119/firstkipchak/space_oddesy_iphone2.jpg, and say allot about how revolutionary it is.
