Re: Apple takes on Spotify

a lot of copying (i mean "innovation") in this WWDC.
copy Flipboard to make their "news" app.
copy spotify/pandora to make the new "music" service.
copy google by renaming their password to "wallet".
i suspect apple knew that was what they were doing as Federighi used the word "innovation" sarcastically a few times in his presentation.
there's not a lot of real innovation going on at apple the days. they seem to be playing catch up these days.
i say that as an apple user. they lost me with the iphone a couple of years ago when i moved to android. and i am now close to dropping OSX and moving back to Windows.
