Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y

Samsung's Galaxy Gear television advertisement bears a resemblance to the original iPhone advertisement.

This made me smile, though:

There is just no shame - or original ideas - in this company at all.

Yeah! Except for display technology. Oh, and except for microprocessor design. And, of course, they are a driving force in memory chip design. Well, yeah, except for all those things from which virtually every computer product today benefits - Apple or otherwise - Samsung has absolutely no innovative ideas at all. What have the Romans done for us, indeed.

I don't care about Samsung any more than I care about other companies, but to shove the company's contributions to technology aside just because you lack the capacity to grasp the kind of more bare metal innovation they do just makes you look like an idiot.

Samsung tries to deliberately copy the physical design of apple products to confuse buyers.

True for people whose reading skills don't allow to see any difference between words "Apple" and "Samsung".

The motivation behind Samsung's copying of Apple's designs is obviously the popularity of Apple's style, not the will of Samsung to fool buyers into thinking that Samsung-branded devices are iPhones.

That said, all the keyboardless touch phones look nearly the same (at best) these days, and only a handful of HTC devices ever deviated from the common look&feel of this group.
