    [SARCASM]Yeah, right -- like we're supposed to believe that these 'artists' actually create original creative 'works' and that these 'works' actually have value. Pppftft. Next thing you're going to say is that 'authors' who write 'books' should be compensated for their work. Only job creators create wealth and value -- not these fluffy 'artists'.[/SARCASM]

    WOW!!!, Just wow!!!, First it was reported and confirmed that a "Swiss" company that makes Vibrators wrote a letter to Apple upset about the fact that Apple stoled the name of one of the companies Vibrator named "Siri" and not only they stole the name but the colors as well because that vibrator was purple. Then a couple of days ago Modmyi reported yet another "Swiss" company named "Swiss Federal Railways" were having a meeting with Apple because the clock used in iOS 6 on the iPad was very "similar" to their clock.

    (iOS 6’s iPad clock design looks very similar to the clock design owned by Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). The problem being that Apple never asked to use the design. In late September, the SBB made headlines all over the Internet stating that they would be getting together with Apple to discuss the matters.

    Oh and by the way i love this part right here:

    "Today, the SBB announces that both parties have agreed to licensing terms one-on-one and agreements have been signed. Apple will now pay the SBB to use the design" LMFAO!!!!

    Ok and if that still wasen't enough now Apple again copies the image from a "SWISS" photographer ??? Are you serious ??? ok so you mean to tell me that the "Most Creative" company in the world can't come up with an original image created by them ? they can't create their own clock design ? they can't even create a "Virtual Assistant" with an original name and colors ? they had to go steal the complete full theme from a freaking vibrator in Switzerland ??? And the funny part is that its always Switzerland. Apple really admires and just adores those Swiss people. Wow i guess they wanna be just like them huh ?, I use to admire Apple alot but now with all of this i have notice that they just shine with other peoples light and then make it look like they came up with it. And not to mention all these stupid lawsuits over pointless issues like if they were so "Original" yea right!!!! I know im about to get alot of heat from all you "Apple Die-Hard Fan Boys" but what-ever, Everything that i just said are legit facts. Shame on them and shame on anyone who oppose to this because that only shows how loyal you are to a company that has to steal material from overseas.

    Actually... This was started by Creative with the lawsuit they won against Apple. Apple learned their lesson and became more protective over their products. Educate yourselves.

    Apple has sued companies for using an apple in/as their logo so why does this get bashed by some of you? How is it right for Apple to sue, but not the artist that created the photo.

    Gloxin......You have issues guy...Like, serious issues. You are obviously in a manic state. For your own sake you need to calm down, and get a grip. Once calm, read the nonsense you just wrote, and apologize to yourself and your family for who you are......You just claimed that Apple "confirmed" that they stole Siri from a Swedish Dildo....Ya...u did.

    Do you not notice SARCASM in ALL CAPS that start, and end the paragraph?? You can Google it if you don't know what it means.

    Because no one really knows if its legitimate. If it is. Apples bad. But I think apple has a pretty big legal team and make sure they use images in there agreed licenses.

    Time will tell. If apple did go outside there license agreement then they need to pay

    LMFAO ok i did get a lil bit carry away but you get the picture and as far as the "Siri Dildo" goes , ok Apple has not confirmed it but who would ever confirm such a thing ? They have to feel very embarass and this open letter from LELO creators of Siri sent to Apple last year flew all over the internet and Apple up to this day has still not mention anything regarding this matter because this will make them look like complete fools.
