Legal "Comparing Samsung's flagship products before and after release of the iPhone & iPad, and how Apple's intellectual property infringement claims hold up." A terrible visual guide that ignores not only Samsung's own pre-iPhone designs, but also - and worse yet - the thirty-odd years of mobile computing that preceded the iPhone. Typical of today's technology world: a complete and utter lack of historical sense. Worse yet are the claims about icons: only the phone icon is similar, but Apple did not invent the green phone icon. This is a remnant of virtually all earlier phones which use a green phone icon for initiate/answer call, and a red phone icon for terminate/reject call. Claiming this deserves IP protection is beyond ridiculous, and shows just how low Apple is willing to go.

Fact is Thom - there's no objectivity or real reporting in your childish write up.


It's only childish and subjective if you disagree with it. Had I written something that agreed with Apple, it would suddenly not be childish and subjective.

Look, we are all smart people here, and my opinion in no way impedes people's ability to make up their own mind - as you just illustrated with your comments.

It was unnecessary. If you don't agree with the content, fine, don't publish it. From where I'm sitting, it just proves that you're becoming fixated on proving one side is right and one side is wrong, when they're both as bad as each other, both rip off anyone that they can and pretty much fight dirty.

Again - I'm not on either side. But either report fairly, employ a volunteer to report on the Apple side of things objectively or stop making any kind of comment on the stories, and let the reader make their own mind up. Because, as you say, we're all *meant* to be adults here, right?

And by "objectively" you mean "in favour of Apple", right?

More importantly - why should Apple get special treatment on OSNews? If I rag on Google or Microsoft - not a peep from you. But for Apple, I should get someone else to do it?

You accuse me of being biased - which I am, I hate companies abusing software patents to stifle competition - while clearly being biased yourself. Kind of funny, in a way.
