Stealing is the way to go

Steve Jobs famously said in 1996: “Picasso had a saying — ‘good artists copy; great artists steal’ — and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.”

Latest news from Microsoft in an effort to get more content in their Windows Store is to make iOS apps available to Windows 10. First thought i had was that MS seems unable to make their own apps popular enough and doesnt seem interesting enough to developers to entice them to make Windows 10 apps… Until i stumbled upon the interview with Steve Jobs mentioned in the quote on top of this post which says it all… Microsoft is doing a fantastic job stealing great ideas! Cant blame them for that 😉
