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.

Before the iPad there were tablets, including ones from Samsung.


Including CruchPad. If a blogger has the same idea and resources to make a device that is essentially an iPad, then technology is already there. iPad just followed the technology.

Why didn't Apple produce a tablet in 2004? One word - technology. (Or would you say that ChrunchPad is a rip-off of Apple's original idea?)
