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.

Except in this particular case Apple stole the idea for the iPhone ad. Who's to say that Samsung didn't also get "inspired" by the original and not the iPhone ad?

Do you believe yourself in that theory?

Does it really matter? Apple stole the concept and Samsung in turn stole it (or got "inspired") from either Apple or the original artist.
