PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

Wow. Just amazing

So basically, Apple is a scummy corporation and all companies share ideas from each other, including Apple. Pretty obvious so far.

But in this case, Apple is claiming that they did it first, when in reality Samsung actually has a full year on Apple, and they've even gone so far as to sue Samsung over it. My mind is about to explode at the arrogance, selfishness, and downright assholishness Apple is displaying with this move. Apple is a downright corrupt corporation. The fact that they got so big is disappointing--now they're just bullying everyone else with cheap tactics.

Good read. I will never buy an Apple product. Never did, and never will. Apple just keeps giving me reasons not to. I think they might have struck a new low now.

"Apple wants to rewrite history. As a geek, I find that incredibly offensive."

To be honest, I find Apple as a company to be incredibly offensive. Period.

Things usually start going bad when a company becomes publicly traded. After that they need to show profits every quarter.
