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.

I might be wearing rose-tinted glasses, but it wasn't that biased was it?

In all honesty, probably not although the government did hold considerable sway.
I do recall BBC having a reputation as a balanced (but not unbiased) news source.

The BBC used to bend over backwards to be completely unbiased. It's still in their charter.

On the other hand, if you watch Sky News (or Fox News) then the BBC News, you can see precisely what good vs bad is. Hint: Bad != BBC
