    Apple drinks the Microsoft Kool Aid, bases iOS 7 on Window


    Apple, the aficiando of all things cool, is throwing away its old-style iOS interface in favor of the flat design pioneered by Microsoft in Windows 8 and Windows Phone. So say several reports. Could the move backfire and help Microsoft gain on Apple?

    And when it is released, MS will sue Apple for copying their design.

    Not very likely. Apple can get away with a lot more things than anyone else because of their religious followings. Waiting almost a week in line just to get a bloody ipad?

    The only reason apple has been able to get away with suing schools and grocery stores for the apple logo in the PR department is because apple fans are religious about it. MS or google suing anyone over a logo or resemblance of design will suffer heavily with their PR because MS and google fans are not religious about it.

    It might have something to do with the fact that the Windows phones are flat out superior to the iphony.

    Could you show us on the doll where the iPhone touched you?

    Geeze man, lighten up a bit.

    Those people that get into lines a week early do so because they know the worlds eyes will be there when a new product from Apple is released. They are often a part of some charitable cause or some YouTube channel looking for hits. There isn't an opportunity to do that with Windows products so no one bothers. Heck, the iPhone's competitors even make it a point to advertise that there is no waiting in line for their products.

    Envy? You might as well lug around a spare phone given the size of the charger. Wireless charging has been around for a while, it's not really picking up steam. You still have the cord, the wall charger and then you add the additional hardware of the charging platform. This doesn't trump the charger to USB cable that is the current standard.

    It's a cute little gimmick but plugging in a cable really isn't a problem that needed a solution. Are your iPhone friends really envious of a wireless charger?
