Fostul CEO Palm sustine ca iOS 7 a copiat functii ale WebOS

  Jon Rubinstein, fostul CEO al companiei Palm si director in cadrul HP dupa achizitionarea Palm, sustine ca iOS 7 contine multiple tehnologii care au fost disponibile initial in WebOS-ul lansat cu multi ani in urma. Rubinstein afirma ca multitasking-ul si task switcher-ul  din iOS 7 au fost imprumutate din WebOS, insa impreuna cu ele ar fi fost imprumutat si sistemul tabbed browsing disponibil in noua versiune a browserului Safari. Adevarul este ca tot ceea ce vedem acum la Apple am vazut in multiple sisteme de operare de-a lungul anilor, functiile fiind atat de inovative incat majoritatea producatorilor le-au implementat cu orice risc doar pentru a le oferi utilizatorilor.

It’s not just mobile platforms. If you look at the notifications on Mac OS X, it looks just like webOS, too. We did a lot of things that were very, very innovative. Obviously, multitasking, notifications, Synergy, how we handled the multiple cards. There’s a long list of stuff we did that has been adopted by Microsoft, Apple and Android. Our over-the-air updates and mechanism has been updated by everybody. Our whole Synergy concept is now becoming much more common. I don’t think anyone has implemented it as well as we did yet, but clearly they’re all heading down that direction.

  Totusi, afirmatiile fostului CEO Palm nu sunt indreptate doar impotriva companiei Apple, el afirmand ca atat Microsoft, cat si Google au procedat la fel cu Windows Phone sau Android OS> Sistemele de notificari, sistemele de update over-the-air si multe altele au aparut initial in WebOS, insa incet si-au gasit loc in majoritatea sistemelor de operare pentru terminale mobile, dar acum conteaza mai putin ingeniozitatea celor de la Palm.
