Hmmm - without people seeing documented development dates,
it's impossible to day whether people rushed things to compete, or had stuff developing whilst saying they didn't.

Further - some of "it looks like our stuff" claims are a little Broad at times from apple

There is another possible angle to this.
As A haven't taken on G as such ... and G/A pick up the little companies ... is it not possible it's either an acquisition competition,
or actually teamworking whilst appearing as competitiors?
