Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y

Samsung's Galaxy Gear television advertisement bears a resemblance to the original iPhone advertisement.

This made me smile, though:

There is just no shame - or original ideas - in this company at all.

Yeah! Except for display technology. Oh, and except for microprocessor design. And, of course, they are a driving force in memory chip design. Well, yeah, except for all those things from which virtually every computer product today benefits - Apple or otherwise - Samsung has absolutely no innovative ideas at all. What have the Romans done for us, indeed.

I don't care about Samsung any more than I care about other companies, but to shove the company's contributions to technology aside just because you lack the capacity to grasp the kind of more bare metal innovation they do just makes you look like an idiot.

If nokia (lumia), and HTC (one), can do it, i'm sure samsung can.

I'm sorry, are you saying that Samsung has not developed it's own style? Or that SGS 2/3/4 look like iPhone?

No, I'm saying that Samsung would try to copy the look and feel of a successful competitor whenever they feel like. It reminds me of when they had this phone with keybord, very similar to BlackBerry, which was called, Black Jack! Or when they developed this vacuum cleaner, and they copied the look and feel of dyson. So, no, S4 does not looks like and iPhone, but previous model more or less did.
