Legal "The 2010 report, translated from Korean, goes feature by feature, evaluating how Samsung's phone stacks up against the iPhone. Authored by Samsung's product engineering team, the document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone." Pretty damning. We still need to know a few things: how many of these were actually implemented? How common are these types of comparisons (i.e., does Apple have them)? Are these protected by patents and the like? And, but that's largely irrelevant and mostly of interest to me because I'm a translator myself, who translated the document, and how well has he or she done the job?

What would cars be doing if Mr Henry was like modern technology firms. Would most cars be using 4 wheels, would most cars have a stereo in the centre, would most cars have an indicator switch on the steering column. I mean come on tech companies. Imagine every industry acted like you, imagine appliance makes saying you can't have a two slice toaster cause we did it first. Accept the copy or similarities as a challenge and improve on it or your own design.Accept the challenge or wither and die. I've had enough of your stifling tech advancement.

If we made the tech industry more like the car one we'd need a license before we could use our devices.

Considering the large number of idiots on-line this may not be a bad idea!

And assuming that's about Henry Ford ...he wasn't really about introducing such kinds of inventions.

He innovated by taking scattered ideas together into a refined business model and production practices (but still not exactly new http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assembly_line#History ), popularising and building upon some largely pre-existing concepts.
