    Considering how many times they tell people to leave Crackberry if a dissenting opinion is given, I find it hilariously ironic that they come in here to instigate.

    But apple is the one going around suing people left and right, and god knows they rip of more ideas than anybody else. And by the way ios multitasking is still not in the league of webos. It has a lot of hype tho, maybe that's why its they call it the hype phone
    And exactly where is WebOS today?

    webOS, or rather LuneOS is finally beginning to gain some traction in terms of being available to certain devices, but we are still in beta. webs-ports.org for the info. We also a successful line of TVs, and possibly an LG phone if the TV sales keep up.

    I am forces to use BB10 on my work device. It is a piece of crap. If Apple have "copied" it and made it useable in the process, then kudos to Apple.

    Closer than after webOS was axed in 2011. We have a neat interface with updated icons, the mochi design might end up getting implemented if we can get the manpower to work on it. Its pretty impressive what they've done so far considering the fact that its only a handful of people working in their spare time.

    So shall we rename the thread, "BlackBerry is a copy of WebOS" then? And maybe you should reread your OP...

    The title says that you think that "iOS 8 is a copy of the Blackberry OS". You left yourself very little wiggle room on that one. You didn’t say it "looked like", "resembled" or "reminds me of" - you suggested that it was "a copy of".

    The title was changed by me to fit the gist of what you were concluding. Your second post is clearly inline with the thread title. Having said that, I do not believe that it was your intent to cause problems, but your first two posts did not come across as merely a similarity like you are currently stating. With that in mind, if you see iOS 8 as a copy of Blackberry, say so and stick with it, but be able to accept disagreeing opinions, especially in a forum that caters primarily to Apple products.

    To the OP's credit, he did not post the current title of this thread. I did. It's my job to alter titles to better fit the OP's point, and if you read his first two posts, the thread title is befitting. His second post stated,

    "Use a BlackBerry and then IOS 8....and I know apple is going to get the credit, I mean I respect apple and all but this is a carbon copy".

    That is his primary point as I understood it to be at the time I made the title change. Befitting? Yep...

    You are not causing an outrage, and if you were, we would be taking action accordingly. Members are reading your posts and responding. Although you could very well be quite innocent in regard to intent, you still are partly to blame for the replies you are receiving. You started this thread with what could be perceived as a humorous slight against iOS 8, and in your second post, you called it a carbon copy of Blackberry. You did that in an Apple-centric forum. Did you honestly think that all of your replies would be in agreement with you?

    I go visit Crackberry here and there, but don't criticize or insinuate anything negative about the products the good folks at Crackberry seem to enjoy. I could see it coming from this OP with comments made on another thread. Here we are high on the upcoming Keynote, iP6 release and the iOS 8 release, among other things, and he comes in here saying iOS 8 is a copy of the Zxxx Blackberry? I have to give him credit for bravery! He knew exactly what he was doing. It's called pushing buttons. Amusing.

    I'm sure most can admit that there has always been a certain amount of hype surrounding the iphone with multiple millions having one just to be able to say they have an iphone.

    The iphone is OK. It does what a modern smarthphone is supposed to do. My girlfriend has one and I have no problems giving it back to her, dont have to pry it out of my hands or anything like that. But for the things I do the most my pre2 does it better

    Your very first post in the thread seems to contradict that. After your initial premise suffers from a reality check.
