How much of that would be frowned upon in the real world? If you can find an example on a web site, your manager isn't going to care if you lift it. As long as it doesn't cause a IP lawsuit. In fact, for probably 20 years since the introduction of object oriented design, the industry has preached "code reuse."

Submission + - John C. Dvorak on iPad (

olddotter writes: John doesn't completely pan the device, which is surprising coming from John. He makes no bold predictions, but does summarize the devices success after 20 years of failed attempts at tablet computing.
