Opinion: Apple steals more Palm WebOS features in iOS8.
Apple today went big on their announcement about their new OS updates on their Mac and iOS devices with their Mac OS X 10 along with iOS 8. Amongst the announcement from Apple came their latest feature which they like to call " continuity" allowing users to easily share data across devices that are powered by apple operating systems. And of course, Apple being Apple(no pun intended) they like to brag about their superiority of their software operating system(name calling other OSes inferior to theirs) unveiling features like if they are the first ones to introduce or innovate them. They introduce others features like an improved "spotlight" search and improvements to the Apple App Store such as mobile "app previews".
One thing that Apple neglected to mention is where did they stole those features, one of the saddest thing is that im sure most of the bloggers and tech journalist will praise Apple for their innovative features like "continuity" that allows users to share data and answer calls from tablets to phones. Those features that many journalist will write in their blogs, those exact same new feature that they are padding themselves of the back(meaning Apple Inc) for making them available for their operating system has been available for years in Palm WebOS.
Lets see at a closer look, the features that were stolen from WebOS:
Journalist right now are writing articles about continuity and how ingenious it is, let them remind those tech bloggers someone else created those exact features way before Apple even thought of adding that to the mac os X and iOS and that company was "Palm" yep! That's right take that, Apple fanboys bloggers. The ability to share data/calls or text has been capable thanks to WebOS when I pair a Pre 3 smartphone to my TouchPad tablet (via touch to share) making it easy to receive texts or calls on the touchpad tablet giving me(users) freedom to answers calls directly on my tablet or phone even while they are charging across the room thanks to WebOS. And lets not forget when user pairs a touchpad tablet to an HP Veer or Pre 3 smartphone via Bluetooth, anyone can view or reply a SMS text message conversation with a friend while it shows up in the messaging application in one easy convenient thread.
