Ah, elegance. Simplicity. It’s inspiring. I love to be inspired.
I was in a mall in Scottsdale, Arizona and was pleasantly surprised to come upon an Apple Store, or so I thought. Upon further inspection it turned out to be a Microsoft store? Wha?!
That is about the extent of my commentary on Microsoft’s attempt at a retail store. Just copy – must be their motto.
And Microsoft should know better.
But what about those that don’t know better?
Pinterest, as I have written before, is crushing the internet right now with orginality and simplicity.
But hey there’s always Pinspire! Now there is originality!
Lesson here is even though imitation or in these cases theft, is not commendable and not at all admirable nor even excusable they must be profiable.
So if you are trying to crush it in your niche and you are not blessed with the creativity of a 5 year old then hey, go for it and sleep well.
But if someday I happen upon a Xipop.com out there, I won’t be very pinspired.
