I do agree it "seems" like apple is just suing the competition to keep it away instead of making a better product then I realized that's retarded. Ok what is Samsung actually copying? I'm really over this who copied who. Kinda a 3rd grade problem with billions of dollars involved

I had used 2 touchscreen phones before the iPhone. The Moto ROKR E6, and a Windows Mobile phone that work gave me. Both were pretty cool at the time. There were hacks out and hell, when the first iPhone came out, I even downloaded the "Slide to unlock" for the windows mobile. I didn't even buy the 1st gen iPhone because it was first generation and I didn't want to switch to AT&T.
Then the second gen (3G) came and I notice there's this thing called jailbreak and unlock. I bought one off eBay and within the first 30 minutes of playing with it, I was in love. I've never liked a phone so much in my life. And I've bought phones costing 400-500 before such as the Nokia 6260 back in 2004. It was just an amazing experience. The way the UI worked was never seen before. The smoothness of scrolling, the large screen, the browser, everything was just well thought out and placed. This was 2007 mind you. Nothing I've seen was even close to this. Andriod was at its infancy and everything was not smooth at all. Samsung was never anything but a "dumb phone" maker at that time. Samsung phones were sold in the same line as Nokia S40 phones. My friend had a Samsung flip phone that used An OLED display and the blue color faded just after a year.
Then the galaxy phones came and they exploded on the market. They did not gradually improved their old phones. They did not gradually improve their OS design. Everything they put out, they put out AFTER the iPhone. Coincidence? I think not. This is not just the phones I mind you. Their tablets have a similar history as well. I will give them the 7" form factor but heck, wasn't the Kindle out before that? Has Samsung actually reinvented or innovated anything??? I guess they did invent ridiculously funny scenarios when I see people holding a Galaxy Note next to their ear to talk. Makes me chuckle every time.
Hell, I get pissed when people copy and use my eBay pictures that I work so hard on to take! I've invested in a $700 camera, $200 in lighting equipment, and time editing the pictures. Someone just comes along and right clicks, save as. I do water mark them too but some people just doesn't care. Some Chinese sites are using my pictures with the watermark still on it! Crazy... If I had a bottomless pocket, I'd go after everyone of them! Sometimes, it's not really about the money but the principle.
Do you really think apple is afride Samsumg will overtake apple and run them out of business? Most likely not. The way Apple is going after Samsung, it seems they really do believe Samsung outright "right click, save as" and that's just wrong.

because that was my idea, no body before think on that. even if its different or better then what i have. still my idea my design. my time of building that staff. There's a lots of people. watching for whatever new staff come out so the can re doit and copy. being honest, samsung device look much like the apple's. why apple is not going in the back of HTC Or Motorola. because the moment you see it . the are different . at first site.EVEN if the are alike apple multitouch device.Even if.They browse the net, even if the keyboard looks same open the same. even, if the have camera.
my point is the could make a different design. the are good on doing it SAMSUNG is/(was) bigger and richer then apple why make something alike.
and is not only one thing the PAD also looks the same. I don't Get it.

So I'm guessing Samsung should of made a phone that wasn't white & rounded edges and a home button on the bottom? If you think both galaxy s2 & s3 look like the iPhone 4 & 4s then you must be a dumbb Asian judge or an even dumber consumer! At least samsung changes there designs and aren't afraid like apple. Making the screen longer?!? Haha what a fail. I've had every single iPhone but now they're just getting boring.. WE NEED COMPETITION!! It's like mark sanchez has more balls then apple since he's not afraid of competition

But frankly, I don't see why Apple is after Samsung here. They have made multiple claims about patent issues being about software, software, SOFTWARE. Ok, so go after Google. My guess is they don't do that because Google has some patents of their own that they can, and will, throw back into Apple's face, if they so chose.
I am a master architect that designs amazing buildings. They are not only functional, but works of art. Once this is designed, I contract out a company to actually build the thing for me. The contractor has a worker who is an up and coming architect. He comes along once it is built, uses those blueprints to make basically the same thing with some minor tweaks, and calls it his own.
So what's my point? The fact that it is Samsung hardware is irrelevant. Apple engineers designed the phone, right down to the processor. Samsung was just contracted to build the components.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Apple made the iPhone big. Apple did it, not Samsung and its components/parts. The ideas and products may or may not be "innovative" but certainly the ability to take those things and turn them into a high-demand product is.

It's obvious Samsung copied Apple. Hopefully Samsung will learn from this and take more time to innovate instead of copy. They wanted something that looked like the iPhone so it would sell like the iPhone.

While I will agree that Samsung could have used a bit more of their own creativity I would have to say that isn't the reason for suing. Apple is screwed without the iPhone. Absolutely screwed. They are in fear of the competition.

I'm not so sure Apple wouldn't be able to survive without the iPhone...its line of computers are quite successful IMO. And the iPod.

Phil Schiller is shocked? You really thought that Apple holds all the patents including the shape of a product? Hope that Samsung milks Apple dry in the courts.

Nobody is going after Asus bc it really does not closely resemble Apple's the way Samsung's does. But this argument could go on and on. I just wanted to point that little aspect out.
I do disagree with that last sentence though. I don't see a reason for Apple to be pissed off. Apple's chargers have looked that way since I can remember...Samsung's replica of a charger is newer. So I would consider that a little bit of a copycat. HOWEVER, this suing business is a little ridiculous. Samsung does make quality products and are equally successful IMO and I have nothing against Samsung, it's just the whole Apple-hating thing is just as ridiculous as the Apple fanboyism thing.

Secondly, it's a charger. Wow. Apple didn't even come up with the 30 pin connector either. Have any of you bought a device because of the charger?
What I would like to see come out of this is a real change in patent (primarily software) law. I can't blame Apple for taking advantage of a broken system. However, they are starting to get out of hand. If they were really trying to protect their IP they wouldn't just be going this hard after Samsung. They'd be suing the hell out of Google directly, they'd be more aggressive against HTC, LG, and Motorola. They are going after Samsung purely to eliminate or hinder them as competition.
