Apple: Not That Original

I guess most of us love Apple and their products. There’s just something “magical” on how they create their devices and we have Steve Jobs to thank for most of the ideas and creations Apple had over the years. Or should we? Considering Apple seems to resolve to suing their biggest rivals for copyright infringement to be on top.

I recently came across this interesting piece of infographic showing that Apple is not that original as we thought they are. When it comes to the Mac, the iPhone, and iPad, and other iDevices, it’s interesting to see how they borrowed, bought or stole ideas.

Check it out. Hit this link or the image below to see the whole infographic.

One thing’s for sure though. Whether copied, stole, or borrowed, Apple sure do know how to make beautiful devices and market them.

Thanks Edgar for the tip!



  1. haha this one’s an eye-opener

  2. This shouldn’t be news to anyone. It’s sad that most people need to be reminded about these facts.

  3. I love it……………!
    Siguro, Kaya mahal ang Apple products.,bukod sa ‘premium quality’ eh binabayaran din ng mga ibuyers yung binili ng Apple na company.Ang totoong innovation ay dinagdagan lang nila ng dinagdagan kaya naging maganda para sa tao na madali namang tinangkilik ng mga tao.

    Bukod nga pala sa sinabi kong ito,
    Napansin ko lang na lahat ng nagpost ng News na ito ay reneredirect nila dun sa link ng bestmasterprograms.com.Siguro takot silang ma ‘SUE’ ng Apple.Naalala ko yung iphone5.com website na inovertake ng Apple( http://news.cnet.com/news/yep-apple-owns-iphone5com-now/57443091) .Wala din itong news na ito sa Phonearena at Gsmarena(na pawang mga itechblog sites)
    Haha baka ma ‘sue’ pa ko ng Apple.

  4. Yes, I agree –> “One thing’s for sure though. Whether copied, stole, or borrowed, Apple sure do know how to make beautiful devices and market them.”

  5. Apple is an innovative company, not an inventive one. Sad that people seem to mistake innovation for invention.
