Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

The iPod and Mac designs design were blatantly stolen from 1960s Braun catalogues.

I didn't know Braun was in the computer and mp3 player business in the 60's. ;)

FrogDesign developed the original Mac case. Jonathan ive designed the iPod case.

The iPad is a direct copy of the 1987 Knight-Ridder concept tablet.


The iPhone is a copy of the LG Prada.

The Prada was announced one month before the iPhone. Its quite daft to say it copied the Prada, since the iPhone had been in development for at least 2 years before that.
