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.

Actually before the iPhone came out, most phones were dumb phones with a headphone jack, or a FM radio or you could play youtube or use skype.

They were just "dumb" phones with features tacked on. While there were phones about that were truly different, they never really made it big in the market place.
