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.

Do not even have adults a right to an opinion?
[...]Thom has a right to give his opinion, like you have too.


As a forum member, yes. As somebody supposedly reporting news, no not really. I grew up with the BBC where they bend over backwards to be fair to all parties. Maybe I'm spoilt? I expect journalists to report fairly and where they disagree with something, to give opinion pieces to expose they own feelings.

I just hope that this judge will tell both Apple and Samsung to stop this silly childish behaviour and compete on quality rather then playing the one that is shocked and all this other theater.


And for that I would have +1'd you, if I'd been able to.
