For the disoriented
The New York Times’ David Pogue proves, once and for all, that Redmond does not copy Cupertino’s ideas:
But is this a ripoff of Apple’s Spotlight feature? It is not. How can I prove it? Watch again. Apple’s search menu is in the upper-right corner of the screen; Microsoft’s search box is in the lower-left corner of the screen. Not the same thing at all!
Some disagree, saying angrily that the features aren’t quite different enough. They must have their monitors hanging upside-down.
Thanks to Robert Acettura for the scoop.
