Unfortunately, it was difficult to tell immediately because the
introductory media was so verbose and the UI still rough in many

If you hear them tell it, there isn't too much imitation involved:
"1500 claims in 60 patents". Seems like they're trying to stake out
the area pretty broadly; hopefully they really are trying to create
"the most intuitive system ever created for operation a computer",
rather than trying to make a quick buck.
