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.

Just relax, take out some popcorn and enjoy the show.


I'd love to, but this is about so much more than just these two companies. This is about incumbents like Apple and Microsoft trying to stifle competition and prevent newcomers from entering the market. If Apple wins, the destructive effect this will have on the technology world will be massive. This is not an attack on Samsung or Android - this is an attack on the very industry I care so much about. If Apple wins, they will be given carte blanche to block virtually every competitor from entering the market place.

This is important. Very, very important.
