    Now correct me if i'm wrong but this BIG coincidence is too annoying to overlook. Jimbeam and I created a mockup of an application called Global Appflow. It looked like this.

    Now to me, this next picture from the release of firmware 3.0 looks very, very similar.

    Well you have not implemented what you thought nor have you patented it. So you can't do anything about it anyways. Still gr8 thinking and all that but without implementation its no use. Just my opinion.

    ?????

    Your saying Apple stole YOUR idea so they could use it in a keynote presentation

    I'm sick of you people claiming apple stole your idea, and that they should give you money.

    Unfortunately for you, Apple was using spherical images like that. Nice try though.


    Now, as for stolen features, they did steal my "Shake To Shuffle" within MobileMusicPlayer from PocketTouch. I know this for a fact because they have contacted me before re PocketTouch. But, you don't see me complaining.

    It is interesting, and Apple has "borrowed" several ideas from the jailbreak community, so I wouldn't rule it out as a possibility, but highly unlikely.
