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?

It's not just Apple haters/Google fans noting that Apple did not innovate. I was using a Palm with touchscreen capabilities when the iPhone was introduced. Too bad Palm did not patent this. I'm seeing a lot of phones use a stylus nowadays.

That seems to be the Apple way. Discount someone else's technology and once they are gone, incorporate it as the hottest next best thing.

It wasn't. A common misconception.

The Newton was not a smartphone. The Palm Treo line was.
