Lol - you guys are both idiots.
Wouldn’t that mean apple infringed on Jeff Hawkins the creator of the palm pilot????
I mean apple lay out their dash board with 4 icons across in a downward motion the same way palm did in 1996? (and I’m sure he ripped it off from someone even before that who did so from someone else all the way back to Grok the caveman who worked out spit and mud made for a good drawing material).
Think before you speak sometimes, it probably wont make you look smarter but at least it will make you apple fanboys not look quite as dumb.
