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.

If Apple wins, the destructive effect this will have on the technology world will be massive.

This is silly. Competition is only forced to come up with something *really* new. Just copying the most successful competition would not do anymore. That's all.

And if Samsung et al. are so innovative, they won't have much problem doing that. Heck, even MS managed to come up with something on its own this time.
