In the battle between Windows and Mac OS X, we've rounded up 10 features that Apple developed first, only to have them borrowed by Microsoft.
9. RSS feeds
Microsoft introduced the ability to view RSS feeds in Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista.
But an integrated RSS reader in a web browser wasn't Microsoft's idea. Apple did it first in Safari 2 in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. Apple's Mail also supports RSS.
10. Windows Disc Image Burner: Disk Utility
Before Windows 7, you had to use a third-party utility to burn ISO disk images to CDs and DVDs.
In Windows 7, just double-click an ISO file to launch Windows Disc Image Burner.
Nice feature, but the Mac's Disk Utility has had the ability to burn as well as create disc images since even before Mac OS X.
