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.

Personally, I think Samsung designs took a very strange shift towards looking like iPhones. Sure, it could be a coincidence. I doubt it, but it could be. But frankly, I don't care that much.

I don't think it is a coincidence that multiple companies use the same technology and make the same choices about how to use that technology. Apparently they have researchers that found the best practices. Weird huh?
