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.

Apple V. Samsung is the big story right now. It's the only one you'll hear about regularly in the 'mainstream media,' because everyone and their mom owns an iPhone.


And yet you claim that
these stories keep popping up because Apple continues to behave in a manner well-worth the ire of anyone.
Sorry, no. These story keep popping up because Thom is heavily biased. And I don't agree that Apple is wrong trying to protect their right using completely legal actions either. If you don't like that a company goes to court about patents (hello - that's what patents are for - to get legal protection!) then you should cry foul about the law. I don't see why this is Apples fault in the first place. Google, Samsun, Nokie, Kodak, have patents too and they will use them if they believe they have to. Simple as that.
