I have this conversation quite often with people in the industry. Innovation is so thrown around now, when in reality, all the major software and hardware giants simply do is take other companies ideas (Through reverse engineering or purchasing of said company) and introduce foreign tech into their own product lines.
Look at the iPad. Microsoft introduced one many years ago but at the time, the current tech made the product clunky and quite frankly a pointless device. Back in 87, in Star Trek - The Next Generation, remember the tablets they used to walk around with? People claim SteveJ came up with a revolutionary idea and they called the device "magical." All they did was take other peoples ideas, with matured technology and released a tablet.
