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.

Yay me!

Put it another way: would you prefer the Times/Telegraph/Guardian or the Sport/Sun/Mirror? We're leaning towards the latter here.

The Independent is my paper of choice. The Times isn't that much better than The Mail (from what I recall) and the Guardian is biased too. Never read the Telegraph though.

The point was more - good quality, if possibly biased vs sensationalised garbage. Next I see headlines that are bad puns and stories that were written down the pub after 10 pints. You know, general standard Sun/Mirror, moving towards the utter insanity that the Sunday Sport used to have ("Statue of Elvis found on Mars", "my son turned in to a Baked Bean and I ate him"... that kind of stuff..)
