I have yet to go into a Best Buy and see tablets just lying around for customers to grab and take to the checkout... you have to get an employee to go get whichever one you're interested in.
...meaning at SOME POINT you would have to specifically ask... you know what, nevermind. I just made myself angry.Reminding you all that YOU'RE ≠ YOUR

WOW! That image says it all... Samsung so blatantly copied the iphone I'm surprised this has dragged on so long. Never thought much about this, but Apple really does have a point!

This situation is exactly the same as the situation with Sony's Walkman, they set a standard and their particular item became synonymous with the actual product. Everyone called every portable cassette player a Walkman even if it was made by Panasonic or any other name brand. To some people every tablet is an iPad because that's how simple they view things. An iPad is what they understand and when he sees something that is in a similar form factor they see it as an iPad. As far as their star witness, I don't understand how he could be saying that there's a general likeness that's being copied when patents are supposed be for very specific things. It should be that small details that they're examining and looking closely at for similarities and to be actually able to say that another company infringed upon Apple's copyright. In the end as I've said in all my other posts, a phone will always look like other phones because they're all phones so I believe this whole lawsuit is irrelevant and stupid. This is just a way for Apple to tie Samsung up in court while they're busy getting a lead on the market and more of an opening for their iPhone 5.

First off, if you buy an iPad thinking its a Samsung tablet, your balls should be removed and you should not be allowed to reproduce. The box says Samsung, the box says Apple. It's a ridiculous claim. It really is.
Second, if you think any of those phones with the exception of the galaxy looks like an iPhone, your a bigger moron. What, because the bezels are the same colors? It clearly says SAMSUNG on the phone, with capacitive buttons on the bottom. It's a rectangle. Maybe Ford should sue Honda because 4 wheelers have tires? I mean come on, be realistic. You can be a fanboy of whoever you are a fanboy of, but be rational. It's ridiculous.
The only reason Apple is doing this is because Samsung has become a threat and people are infact jumping off the iOS bandwagon. Apple has in fact taken elements from Android as well - Steve JObs admitted stealing ideas in his book. It's crazy. The whole thing is crazy. I personally perfer Apple's product designs and materials over Samsung devices, but in the end it's about user experience for me, and iOS isn't even close.

It is fact that in the corporate world competition is bad for profits. Companies are not in business to compete, they are in business to make a profit. The best way to profit is to destroy your competition, not foster it. Anyone who believes otherwise needs to stop drinking the kool-aid.

first of all, i don't understand why this mmi editor used the word "struggle" in the headline of this article. what message do you try to imply?
some posters stated that the consumers shouldn't get confused when they purchased the phones/tablets bcs the product package/ui showed the company logo. but that is not the point. samxxx copied the look/ui of apple product to get your attention to try samxxx product. who can tell what is what when you are 20/30 feet away from the products. you glimps all the phones on the display shelf first and go to the one you think that is attractive to you. samxxx understand that. that is why apple must stop samxxx from copying the look/ui of apple product.

As far as the look, refer to my prior post about who released the first phone that looks like the smartphones we all know today.

As for the UI, it's apples and oranges. iOS looks nothing like Android from a distance. Especially because most Android phones and it's widgets set it far apart.

I wonder f there's ever been a costumer that was willing to spend 100$'s on a phone and wanted a Samsung phone but accidentally bought an iPhone... Yeah that's never happened

as ui, yes, the android is from google. but samxxx builds its ui, which is based on android, to look like apple ui, which is based on apple ios. that is why apple is not happy with that.
