PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Hold on to your panties, because this should come as a surprise: I'm actually agreeing that Samsung is copying Apple. The Korean company just released a new entry-level Android smartphone, and it's called the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus. While Apple's previous complaints regarding Samsung's supposed copying were obviously nonsense, this Galaxy Ace Plus, on the other hand... It's almost as if Samsung is giving Apple the finger by copying the iPhone 3G(S) almost verbatim.

She shouldn't be banned of course, but what are the odds of her appearing in the Samsung commercial? It seems she was picked because she was in the Apple ad.

They could have picked any other girl, I'm sure there are a lot more out there.

If Samsung is accused of copying Apple they shouldn't have casted this girl, because she hasn't got anything to do with their or Apple's products design and technical wise, but she did appear in an Apple commercial.

OMG is Touchstone copying 20th Century Fox? Because I'm sure that Johnny Depp got the role in Ed Wood with a dig fat "I was in Edward Scissorhands" on his resume... It's one thing copying an ad/product/design/packaging/whatever and totally another using experienced actors.

One company makes an ad for a tablet, featuring a girl.

Another company, accused of copying the first company, makes an ad for a tablet, featuring the same girl.

A little girl, you call an experienced actor. It's not like she has many lines or actually acts. They could have picked any girl and there are many girls registered at casting bureaus. They didn't, they picked this girl.

You know Johnny Depp. Do you know what the girl's name is? Probably not, like most people do not.

Does she draw crowds like Johnny does? No, she doesn't.

Does Mr. Depp play a strange pirate for multiple movie studios? No, he doesn't.
