It has been said that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. If this holds true, then the folks at Apple must be blushing constantly. Not only do their competitors ape the company's innovations on a regular basis, aficionados of Apple's offerings, too impatient to wait for rumored Mac and iOS products often put together their own convincing version of the next killer piece of gear they hope that Cupertino's hard at work on.
