PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Hold on to your panties, because this should come as a surprise: I'm actually agreeing that Samsung is copying Apple. The Korean company just released a new entry-level Android smartphone, and it's called the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. While Apple's previous complaints regarding Samsung's supposed copying were obviously nonsense, this Galaxy Ace Plus, on the other hand... It's almost as if Samsung is giving Apple the finger by copying the iPhone 3G(S) almost verbatim.

In the case of Samsung - when you abandon your customers as with the case of refusing to provide a ICS update for Galaxy S owners then what is left to restore your name other than to copy your closest competitor that has a high retention and repeat purchase rate. Around 1-2 years ago I was pretty neutral on Samsung to the point of indifference but the decisions they've made over the last several years has pretty much convinced me to avoid their company like the plague - they've well and truly shown that their douchbag ways that beat the douchbaggy of Apple, Microsoft and Oracle combined in some cases, especially when it comes to backing their own products for the long term via software and firmware updates/upgrades.
