Apple copied the idea for a GUI from Xerox, then cried like babies when Microsoft did the same thing to them. Magnetic power connectors have been around forever. I have one on my ancient french fry cooker and my hot water boiler. It's a safety issue so no tripping on cords and sending hot liquids and oils all over the place. NOT an innovation! A Unix based OS is hardly innovative. Microsoft actually has purchased and developed their own proprietary OS codebase. Apple relies on Unix which has been around for what 50-60 years? If anything this shows that Apple is more about chic design and less about technology as just about any tech they have is purchased from other companies and then popped into their products. iPhone/iPod touch/iPad are not particularly innovative. Palm did just about everything only slower and with lesser screens and graphics. Apple popularized these devices but did not innovate. And do not start preaching to me about the Newton because I don't want to hear anything about that non-device. I'm not saying Apple is bad...but the innovation is NOT there. They are one hardware maker among many and deserve loyalty contingent on continuing quality. This is written as a wake up call to the kool-aid drinkers and not as a flame or troll post. Basically Apple makes nice hardware that lacks in priceformance. The consumer electronics line being the exception as I don't think their iPods, tablets and phones are priced a whole lot higher than their competition.
