Plagiarius Awards

Admittedly, there is no progress and development without referring to already existing patterns, ideas and rules. However what counts is the willingness to develop the existing and give it an individual and distinctive style. The imitators pursue one goal only: to profit at the expense of the hard work of others – and this affects the creatives and the consumers likewise.

各領域皆然,OS 雷同語言與顛倒,還有吳淡如……模仿是最真誠的讚美,心情會好一些。

先是這一篇新聞↗關於微軟將把 RSS 嵌入下一代視窗系統的消息,接著看到 TUAW 刊出的圖片,上面的瀏覽器是 IE 7 (beta 版本)、下面的瀏覽器是 Safari RSS。感覺似曾相識嗎?微軟的瀏覽器開始支援 RSS、採用金屬面板、簡約的設計…嗯!Safari RSS 的確是不錯的瀏覽器,很高興 IE 7 開始向 Safari RSS 看齊…:D
