Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

Who took cues from whom?


I think you just proved the point, however...

You can't compare two modern-day devices side by side and claim one of them stole ideas from the other when there's an entire history of concepts and ideas that have built up to the current state of computing.

Thom used one example to make that point, and you used several more.
