    I seriously doubt any of those companies will actually completely stop doing this without some enforcement.

    Thank goodness, Roke. I was reading through this thread, and post after post by people who apparently learned to read individual words, but learned nothing of how to gather meaning from the way that they are arranged in sentences and paragraphs.

    I hope that reading comprehension has not truly dropped to such a small percentage, though. If so, no wonder our republic is in such peril. :P

    I don't agree with that at all. Apple's game is with mobile devices, they will NEVER be the leader in computers...EVER! Mac's are the minority in the computer world, most people use and will always use Window based machines. The large success for Apple has simply been because of iPod and iPhone and now the stupidest product of them all...the iPad!

    They are not replacing Microsoft lol.

    I don't think he meant replacing them. Apparently there was some big control issues with Microsoft awhile ago. And I wouldn't really say the iPad is stupid. It's just an oversized iPod touch.

    As anyone in business knows, if you can't compete with your competitor, you try to stymie them or disrupt there work by going after key employees. It's less about improving your own business than pulling keystones out of your opponents. And why was it just a byline to say "oh 5 other companies were told to stop doing the same"? They all do it and by factor of numbers, google does it more than any other company and Apple were their main target. These secret agreements were made to stop the undermining of each other that had taken place. It was a cease fire in the war against poaching each others employees. Simple. If it continued, it would just make running a business long term, dysfunctional.

    Whoooooooooooaaaaah there. No need to get overly excited. For now windows dominates computers, but it is not fair to say that it will ALWAYS control the market. I recently switched from a Windows 7 Computer to my 27" iMac and I am happier than I have ever been. And who calls the iPad stupid? I'm tired of these grudges against Apple. I love the iPad, and many people do. People say "It's just a big iPod Touch'." WELL THATS THE POINT. It is supposed to be a larger iPod Touch. You can see and do more with a larger screen.

    And tell me, if it's so "stupid" then why has it created so much competition? People actually buy these things, and then other companies make their own version.
