You may remember our recent discussion on the new "Spotlight" search feature due to hit future releases of Mac OS X, and that Microsoft have been planning something similar for Longhorn.

It already looks like MS and Apple are ready to start a a mud slinging match of "who-invented-the-cool-stuff-first".

"Apple threw down the gauntlet earlier this week with the Tiger banners displayed prominently at the Worldwide Apple Developer Conference. "Introducing Longhorn: Redmond, Start Your Photocopiers," they proclaimed."

"They're copying our concepts," whined Apple CEO Jobs to the New York Times. "I'd kind of like to get credit some time."

Kind of getting boring, this kind of talk. Isn't it? IMHO, none of you invented anything first, except new and better ways to promote your market dominance.
