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.

Samsungs innovation that is what makes this such a hot mess because for a company like Samsung to then turn around and shamelessly copy Apple, over and over again after being so innovative is embarrassing!

Or is it they just copied companies like Nokia and Blackberry in the past and no one called them out on it.

Ether way Samsung needs to give it up. They now make great smart phones that don't copy Apple, keep it moving and totally leave it alone.
