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?

Uh, without Samsung's R&D budget, there would be no iPhone.

Pray tell with all the R&D they couldn't be screwed providing an Android 4.0 update for their Galaxy S range let a lone a crapware free version of Android 4.0 for Galaxy SII. R&D numbers don't mean a hill of beans if there is f--k all to show for it when it comes to material output - Microsoft being the best example of pointless crap being the focus of their R&D rather than real ideas that lead to real products and in turn real profits.
