Which is which? Acer just showed off its AcerCloud service, something that already sounded suspiciously like Apple's iCloud. Even the "PicStream" element sounds a lot like Photo Stream. Still not convinced? Acer basically ripped off Apple's slide wholesale, outside of the font, which is a simulacrum of Apple's font of yore. Check out both slides below.

We try really hard to highlight the important distinctions that companies bring to their me-too services, but Acer isn't making it easy. Let's try a little harder next year, yeah guys?
