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.

BS.

The Apple designs are blatant copies of designs by 1960s German designer Dieter Rams.

Apple is a corporation that has always stolen and dishonestly appropriated other people ideas and claimed them as their own - GUI and mouse(Xerox), OSX (BSD) etc.

Stebve Jobs was a liar, sociopath, thief and criminal (all detailed in Isaacson's biography). Jobs offensive personality and his dubious "values" have permeated every pore of the Apple culture.
