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?

I dont know what you were using back then but I thank Nokia for giving me Maemo based devices.

This generalization of what everyone thinks/expects is very broad and makes me think that you subscribe to the fantasy/delusion that Steve Jobs created the iPhone out of thin air. No outside inspiration, no copying of others and so on.

It still stands the fact that companies do this all... the... time...
