Legal About the Apple vs. Samsung jury verdict: "I hate it," Wozniak told Bloomberg, "I don't think the decision of California will hold. And I don't agree with it - very small things I don't really call that innovative. I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody's technologies." From the mouth of a real inventor and engineer.

This is what the Department of Redundancy Department contributed to the linked article:

The company also demonstrated a new feature for taking panoramic photos taking feature.


Something that's been in Android for some time now. It's the same as turn-by-turn navigation, or even the 'share' menu, for instance.

Apple has to compete with specialized hardware makers (Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc...) and a company like Google (both a software maker and a big-scale information cruncher) at the same time.

They need to stop copying Android and come back with some big bet (like what they did with the original iPhone or the iPad), because the physical design or their users' elitist mindset won't save their ass much longer.

EDIT: Fixed a redundancy :-)

Funny thing is, the Turn by turn navigation and Panorama has been available on my Nokia N900 since late 2009, though the voice navigation wasn't originally there (the community got that working).

But this was a hardly supported phone. The Symbian phones at the time had panorama software and turn by turn navigation.

I find it hilarious that Apple's 'innovations' are all copied from everyone else.
