You're right, it's not about rectangles with rounded corners, it;s about Apple's fear of competition...

This is something we've seen a zillion times in tech.....everyone remember writing in BASIC? Here's what the pattern looks like...

10 A new company comes along with a radical new product
20 Said product gradually finds an audience and becomes very popular
30 Competitors struggle to keep up and new company keeps pushing ahead with new innovations
35 New company is now industry leader
40 New company reaches creative peak
50 Pace of innovation starts to slow down
60 Competitors start to catch up
70 New company starts getting worried and begins filing lawsuits and using other underhanded to maintain market dominance, no longer innovating, company struggles to keep up with competitors
80 Quality starts to rapidly decline
85 Company releases crappy, second rate product which leads to a rapid loses its luster...
90 Go to 10

Apple is currently at 70 and is rapidly heading towards 80

This has happened so many times in tech that it isn't even has happened to IBM, Palm, RIM, Microsoft, Atari, Nintendo, Sega......and it happened once before with Apple in the mid to late 80's.....
