Legal "The web has been alight these past few weeks with the details of the Apple v. Samsung lawsuit. It's been a unique opportunity to peer behind the curtain of how these two companies operate, as the trial seeks to answer the question: did Samsung copy Apple? But there's actually another question that I think is much more interesting to the future of innovation in the technology industry: regardless of whether the courts say that Samsung copied Apple or not, would we all be better off if we allowed - even encouraged - companies to copy one another?" This is very relevant.

I think the point the chap was trying to make that it was almost a complete rip-off.

Say what you want about Metro, Unity and Gnome 3 ... at least they are attempting to do something different.

I haven't used a recent Android Device, so I won't comment on whether it does or not. However the OP obviously thinks it does.

If what the OP said was true, forgetting about patents itself ... it just shows staggering degrees of laziness and IMO just plagiarism.
