    Default Samsung Face-Palm of the Day: Using Apple Logos to Decorate Their Stores


    There are only so many ways high-end electronics manufacturers can design a store, and many have taken cues from Apple’s minimalistic, and clean-bordering-on-sterile look.

    But, if you’re Samsung, and currently embroiled in legal battles spanning multiple continents with Apple, one would think you’d try to distance yourself from Apple in every way possible. Which is why the decals on the wall of the Samsung store pictured above are so amazing.

    The Italian-based Samsung store has the Apple App Store logo, and Safari browser logos plastered on the walls clear as day. This is like the White House putting up Kim Jong-il wallpaper in the oval office. Okay, it’s not that bad, but still incredibly embarrassing and an easily preventable design oversight.

    I can only imagine Samsung’s legal team sharing in a collective face-palm when this catches their attention. But, perhaps they’ve started expecting everything their company turns out to come under fire for looking like Apple’s, well, everything.

    I'm not convinced.
    Only the one photo seems to be around.
    It's not the iOS Safari icon anywho.

    IF this is real then someone will have egg all over his /her face.It might be fake or, if not, in one store only so someone made a mistake.If it's in all Samsung stores it's a problem, if only one then it's just a cock up.A funny one though

    It's fake, there's a Firefox logo. Doubt that would do that.

    And there's a Google TV logo.

    Wow if this is to be believed samsung has taken this to another level. I love samsung devices for they are my second favorite after apple but this and the use of apples 30 pin USB on the galaxy tab 10.1 is truly ridiculous!!

    In regards to the seemingly fake photo. It's sarcasm not spam... get it right!
    If ya wanna report someone report the guy who pasted the entire conversation and a dead video, then added nothing to it.

    Oh my gosh! Samsung has now traded the App Store icon for the Cydia one!


    Just kidding around, but if the original picture is real then....Samsung, You So Crazy!

    ^^^ My point exactly. This is such an easy photoshop that I find it almost impossible to believe that this is real, and I tend to be the guy that wants to believe pigs can fly.
