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?

why Palm? Apple Newton is older than Palm


It wasn't. A common misconception.

Newton development started around 1987-1988 inside Apple.

Lets back up a bit Thom -- do you in general support knock offs?

Would I be OK putting up a site called O5news with grey header, white background, and subscribe to a bunch of tech stories that I repost on O5News.com. I could post around the web as Tom Holerada from O5news, maybe sign some ad contracts and get myself up in google on both strings O5news and OSNews? How about 05News and sOSNews. I could write articles on other blogs as this person, maybe get some other perks.

Since you didn't invent white-paged blog sites about tech issues, you didn't invent OS's, you didn't invent News, and you didn't invent the name Tom (or Thom), what's wrong with what I propose?

So did development that led to the Zoomer. Read up on Jeff Hawkins and GRiD to get the full story. The GRiDPAD was released - not developed, but actually released - in 1989.

Apple iPhone - Samsung Galaxy
O5News - OSNews
Thom Holwerda - Tom Holerada

See the difference?

Aside from that, I really have no problems with that. In fact, there are loads of sites out there like OSNews. Go ahead, the more competition, the merrier.
