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.

Patents of device shapes

Sorry if this has been said already, but, I have to wonder if shapes of products in the future will really matter... just as long as they have a unique-identifier (i.e.: Product Logo) on them. Like a Product Build GNU Lenience.

When it comes to SmartPhones, Tablets, and other such products... there is a fundamental ascetic that must be met from a users perspective. A phone can only be so thick, a general shape, and weigh so-much... This doesn't leave much room for unique design, from a patent perspective.
