I understand perfectly well what he meant and why he said it. I can also look at how he and Apple acted prior to that and after that including now with companies like Samsung.

It is pointless to get you or any Apple supporter to actually look at facts within context.

The dumbing down of western culture indeed and the rise of the superstar sociopath CEO's.

You may understand it, or at least say you do, but many others don't.

Wether Apple is hypocritical about it doesn't matter and another discussion, although I don't doubt you can make a good case about that they are.

The only thing I tried to do was explain the quote which so many Apple/Steve haters misuse.

It's okay to not like some person or some company, but when wrong arguments are presented I simply try to correct them.

In each Apple related discussion, which is about almost every topic on this site, I see people say or claim "facts" about Apple, Steve Jobs or their hard- and software that aren't true. And it's sad that when someone explains why it's not true they get modded down and people who write childish, wrong or illogical stuff get modded up and cheered on.

When I was full-time in to Linux the same thing happened with Microsoft and Bill Gates. I didn't like Windows or Microsoft, but in the end I spend time more defending them than I did promoting Linux.

Well..

What happened to Samsung was totally deserved.
It's not round corners and dumb lawyers or jury.

Samsung copied iPhone almost to the last milimeter.

They did a clone of the iPhone, a little better in quality when compared to Chinese clones, but in essence - they copied.

Apple is totally right when it goes after iPhone cloners and tells them to make their own phones.

Samsung's Galaxy S3 is a step to the right direction.
But Apple made them do it.

I hope we'll see more original phones, creative competition, and therefore, less litigation.


FYI, I am not an (exclusive) Apple fan. I own both an (older) iPhone and a (more modern) Android phone (2.2). I like iOS better because it has more unix in it, and can be used as a very portable unix machine with terminal etc. I cannot say that about Android.

That is so ridiculously misinformed and inaccurate that
I can't tell if you're really an apple fan, or you're doing a performance art act caricaturing one.

Samsung Galaxy S2 doesn't look like an iPhone and the court was a farce the jury wanted to go home so they didn't care about prior art
