I will say it's messed up if she came up with an idea, Apple noticed this idea and met with her about this idea, then passed on working with her only to do HER idea on their own with their own spin, and didn't bring her in at all.
That is some sheisty stuff. But it's the world we live in. The world we support. The system we enable. It allows big companies to stomp on the smaller folks. And unfortunately, in the eyes of the law, her work isn't protected.
That doesn't make it right though. I feel like if they legitimately had a meeting and then Apple went on to "create" something that resembles what they met with her about, she should get some compensation. Laws should be changed to protect people from something like that.
