    Good to see someone got the joke instead of nerd-raging about the history of the automobile.

The reason I'm singling out Apple is because all I keep reading is how much profit they're constantly making.
    Petty jealousy over success is nothing new, but it is destroying our world. Instead of wishing ill will towards someone or something, how about you use your energy towards something positive and tangible. Just a thought.

    Lol, actually knowing what you are talking about makes you a nerd. You can resort to baseless attacks to defend yourself, but you still look like an idiot talking out of your as$.

    But Ford did have a number of patents on crucial components of the Model T. Mercedes Benz also file one of the earliest patents regarding automobiles.

    Samsung knew they were copying, but they just went ahead. Good for Apple that they had the guts to sue them. It shows all the phone companies that they just can't copy Apple because of their success.
    Great minds discuss ideas.
    Average minds discuss events.
    Small minds discuss people.

    Knowing what you're talking about doesn't make you a nerd. Nitpicking points that are tangential to the idea behind the post does, though.

    Apple doesn't copy "people". Does your iPhone look humanoid to you? Does your iPad resemble hominid characteristics?

    IOS 5 was nothing but a copy of Android. Did google complain and go sue them? No, they just kept working to make Android better. I own Apple products but all the copy bs of stuff that should not be patentable is crazy. Round display. WTF!!!

    Where did Google get their ideas? Alot of them were from jailbreak tweaks. And did the tweak developers sue Google? No. Checkmate. Goodbye.

    People always here the bad news, cluck their tongues and then regurgitate it to coworkers for shock value. It's just like the "boycott Starbucks because they don't support the military" emails. I'm still correcting people on that one. No one worries about verifying.

    Thanks for proving my point!! Everyone copies something but only Apple tries to sue everyone about it. Checkmate !!

    Like I tell everyone, best is relative. The iPhone has the best apps for me which is why I use one. GS3 is the best device as far as features to me. What's best for me is not best for everyone.
