If apple can recreate something which is old in to something even bigger then why not. Its what they are good at. They dont only make what has already been done just fantastic but they make it so its a new innovative product. Apple alllll the way!

Actually, if you look at the statements by Steve Jobs friends, and peers, as well as Apple themselves, they never claimed to be inventors of things. Innovators yes. The problem is when people misunderstand innovation to purely mean invention.

Apple is actually very good at taking existing technology (as well as new, they do invent some things), and creating a great and compelling way to use such technology.

Latest example is Siri, which previously was just an app on the app store. Now, it is integrated system wide within the iPhone, with wikipedia and Wolfram Alpha as a database, integrating all the apps together to create a smooth AI personal assistant.

apple always "invents" stuff..

and... finally, things start biting them back in the butt for it (funny enough, they started most of this)

this is not the first time apple have stated they created an innovative, when its already been on the market sometime.

Apple is great at creating marketing hype - this is how they do it

actually i laugh @ Apple "world-firsts", but if i was the developper of technology and never licensed that to Apple i would be heavily pissed off.

Next Apple move: They will claim a patent on filing a law suit against competitors for steeling intelectual properties so they become the only ones who can file a law suit, nobady else. LOL

too bad GSM patents belong to Nokia and every phone is paying for it. lol
