Between all the heated debates and court documents being released as part of the ongoing and seemingly never-ending Apple vs. Samsung courtroom drama, there seems to be some humorous news. Ina Fried of AllThingsD noted the following line from one of the recently made-public court documents (note, the emphasis is hers):
Samsung was forced to release a bunch of documents it had been keeping under seal that show the likeness between its products and Apple’s. Examples outlined in the documents include comments from Samsung workers discussion similarities with Apple’s products and reports Samsung got from retailer Best Buy that Samsung tablets were being returned because customers thought they were getting iPads.
On another note, it is quote ironic how people could possibly not only mistake a Samsung tablet for an iPad but then go ahead and purchase it and not realize the lack of Apple logos and jargon on the box itself. Going one step further, if they couldn’t tell the difference that they bought a Samsung tablet and somehow even got past the box to opening it up, at what point did they realize it wasn’t an iPad? The whole situation brings too many questions to the table and is rather confusing (yet funny) at the same time. Let’s hope the two tech giants resolve their issues with one another sooner rather than later so that the industry can move forward with innovations and advanced technology instead of accusations and stupidity.
