It's *still* a good idea MICROS~1 didn't go into banking. If they had
the crisis would be worse than the chart was supposed to suggest.
Now, what about the article contradicts the fact that the monopolists
are now copying another App-hole INNOVA~1 because their business model
is in shambles?
Face it, all they have left to work with is copying from linux and
iApple. They haven't come up with an idea in a good, long time that
was: a) new; and, b) desired by consumers. All they do is cheap, buggy
knock-offs of others' ideas, or dumb buggy ideas that they can't give
away. Usually all of the above: cheap, dumb, buggy knock-offs that they
can't force down anyone's throat once people get a taste of it.
