Thanks for praising Jobs.

It doesn't matter what you decide to Call it... The facts remain the same... Jobs GOT the idea from Xerox and Gates GOT the idea from Apple.

And yes, it is the same MO MS has operated under for years. Let someone else shows what's selling well and then they jump in with their own version - Wordperfect becomes Word, Lotus 123 becomes Excel, Netscape becomes Internet Explorer - and market the heck out of it. Of course, it helps when you can also automatically include your software with a computer's OS. HA!

Whether you like MS or not, their MO is proven. And it's the same MO Michael Winicki was getting at in the "How to spot a hot product" thread we had about a month back. And the same MO Harv Ecker mentions - find what's selling over there and sell it over here.
