Legal "The 2010 report, translated from Korean, goes feature by feature, evaluating how Samsung's phone stacks up against the iPhone. Authored by Samsung's product engineering team, the document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone." Pretty damning. We still need to know a few things: how many of these were actually implemented? How common are these types of comparisons (i.e., does Apple have them)? Are these protected by patents and the like? And, but that's largely irrelevant and mostly of interest to me because I'm a translator myself, who translated the document, and how well has he or she done the job?

Thanks for some balance Thom! :-)

As I said before - this isn't "Apple is evil" vs "Samsung is good".. they are BOTH large organisations with very dirty tactics and practices. If we start excusing Samsung and demonisimg Apple, we're really not telling the real story. Neither should be given any free ride and neither should win the case. The judge is seemingly bemused they didn't settle already and she is taking no shit from either side.
