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.

And, of course as it's Samsung, getting convicted multiple times for memory chip price fixing.

ever noticed that these convictions allways happen when the memory-price is at a historic low?

Are you suggesting that Samsung and other commercial ventures break the law and risk getting caught in a desperate attempt to lower memory chip prices for us poor consumers?

As they were convicted, more than once, I guess the judge nor I believe this.

It's funny when Apple for example doesn't cheat mobile phone benchmarks people, like you, suggest they probably did despite any evidence suggesting they did and when for example Samsung not only breaks the law, but also gets convicted people, like you, suggest that they were wrongly convicted and we actually doing a good thing.
