A sad day. He was a great innovator, communicator and business man. The world is a poorer place now.

Innovator? No. Apple has stifled innovation for years with its vexatious patent claims and aggressive attitude to competitors. Its only innovation was very early on when it made the transition from CLI to GUI.

What is the point in spending millions of dollars developing ideas when people can just come along and copy them. Patents protect developers and innovators, without them they wouldn't bother.

Yeah as without patents Apple certainly wouldn't have ripped off Creative and have go to court.

Oh wait it did and they had to settle out of court.

Great innovation that Apple.

Apple have never done that. They've spent millions patenting and then copying others. They stopped being true inovators years ago. Like many in the current oligopoly, they spend their time destroying upstarts and stealing ideas, because they have the power to do so and if they don't they would go out of business.
