Legal "Comparing Samsung's flagship products before and after release of the iPhone & iPad, and how Apple's intellectual property infringement claims hold up." A terrible visual guide that ignores not only Samsung's own pre-iPhone designs, but also - and worse yet - the thirty-odd years of mobile computing that preceded the iPhone. Typical of today's technology world: a complete and utter lack of historical sense. Worse yet are the claims about icons: only the phone icon is similar, but Apple did not invent the green phone icon. This is a remnant of virtually all earlier phones which use a green phone icon for initiate/answer call, and a red phone icon for terminate/reject call. Claiming this deserves IP protection is beyond ridiculous, and shows just how low Apple is willing to go.

It's only a really "terrible" chart if you want to believe Samsung. If you don't care (pretty much me) and believe people are being blinkered and reporting from an skewed angle on *both* sides, or if you believe Apple, well, it's pretty damning.

Fact is Thom - there's no objectivity or real reporting in your childish write up. You could have said "this is another point of view, take it for what it is - another view", but instead it becomes a kindergarten level finger pointing and foot stomping dig at Apple. Very sad for OS News, sad indeed. The reason I submitted this article is that you've become extremely biased. Here was me hoping we could get back to reporting news rather than sitting on our back porches shooting at raccoons and muttering to ourselves about how evil the "man" is.
