    So, your whole Windows thing is stolen from Apple. What comes around goes around.

    Oh, wait not stolen, copied.
    Nope. End of the story.

    somehow, i am start laughing, because they used to think that Microsoft couldn't do anything right. now, what they did is copying Microsoft.
    iOS 7 copied Windows Phone. Android 5(or 4.5 or whatever) copied Windows/Windows Phone's Tiles (except they don't make a live tile, but static).

    I know what happens

    Microsoft introduces Metro UI
    "BOO! Texts are so hard to read!"
    "Borefest! They are as done as my fried egg this morning!"
    "Is this UI a #tbt????"

    Google and Apple goes Metro
    "Yas! Kings!! So innovative and modern!"
    "Revolutionary. Outside of the box thinking!"
    "And they did it again"

    (After 5 seconds fandroids and apple fans start their month long battle on which one is better)

    That's how Microsoft gets it all the time..

    typical a lags of fandroids and a group of iSheep. Arguing the original product, and advertising their own.

    how iSheep gonna be like when they knew apple copied other people.
    "it is not who created first, it is who make it USABLE!"
    "so what? apple make it cleaner and better"
    "their __something here__ is not even same as our __soomething2 here__"
    "did you know that __company here__ copied us too?"
    "__company here__ copied others too"

    found this image during searching for google apple copy microsoft

    iOS7 and windows phone with a white theme look strikingly similar.

    I don't think android is unique in any way ... the design of android was copied from Symbian.. the only unique thing about it is notification centre and of course the lags and crashes ;)
    Symbian had a notification centre before Android. :)

    Let's take a look at those similarities.

    Lockscreens: They both have a picture... one has something that tells you to swipe to the side. Seriously, the only similarity is that they both have a picture.
    Messaging: Yep, they both are white. And the keyboards both have square letters. Granted, the only thing that changed with iOS 7 was that the colors got brighter in the chat bubbles. It had been white before for the background.
    Call screen: You have me here, they're actually similar.

    Now let's look at the differences:
    iOS is a grid of icons in folders, WP8 is a screen filled with live files.

    This is the main thing you're going to notice. They're not really similar. It's funny to say they are, but they're not.

    You do know flat has been done by many people before, right? It isn't just a Microsoft thing.

    People keep pointing to a single wallpaper from both, that they both have bubbles... and I say so what?
    Their photo hub is different than ours, and better. iOS has photos set up in a way where their placement is based on both location and time it was taken. WP has one of the two.
    Their calculator is also different. The shape, the spacing, it's different. Heck, the colors are different. Not even the buttons are the same.
    I'm also not seeing how the calendars are so similar.

    Seriously, you're reaching.
