It is now Apple's turn to capitalize on their own products to remain attractive rather than trying to stay proprietary to one design at a time. That is what seems to be the underlining perception of what is going on here.
If a restaurant wants to stick with one hamburger choice, it shouldn't get mad when the competiton has taken that hamburger and made it more attractive with more choices. I hate using this analogy, but it does cast an example of how Apple is ...
