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.

What you made sounds very complicated, but what about watches?

In Turkey you can buy a Rolex replica that looks totally real (made in Asia). A Rolex Submariner is an relative old design (so no R&D costs to be won back), but a real one costs a lot more than a replica. So I'm guessing a lot of the costs goes to the well paid people in their beautiful buildings. If that is so than that expensive Rolex watch isn't really that valuable at all.

The seller of a fake Submariner paid 75 euros for it he told me. That includes material, assembly, wages and profit for the maker.
