then why no one is suing Apple one by one? Those things sound enough to make Apple go bankrupt? why aren't they doing so? If you say that they did sue but nothing happened then too bad for them. If I am good enough to copy everyone and made it big like Apple. I wouldn't care what you think.

Hey if i can sell a black phone for $1000 with nothing in it and if people still buy it, why would i lower the price and put 100 new things in it? it's not greed it's common sense. You and I would do the same thing. If you are the only one who sells oranges on your street and everyone wants it , you charge $10 for it would you lower your price and be "nice". Don't blame people for doing business like normal. This is common business sense. Don't say who's greedy or not. You see apple as greedy because it's one of the biggest companies in the world. Everyone does this.

apple is the greediest company on the face of this planet, if they had no competition if it wasn't for samsung sony htc lg and the others, they would have never upgraded their phones not even to this point, if they could sell a phone with white and black screen for 1000$ they would do it, they do not want innovation, the few things they've done , they've done it only because they've got some serious competition, this is one of the reasons for which i will never buy an apple product. and if i ever receive one as a prize or a gift i would sell it without thinking twice.

Only Apple did copied all those features because all those features already existed long before Apple thought of producing a mobile phone.

copied all these features: the idea of a mobile phone with a screen a speaker a mic an internal antenna a battery chipsets memory a SIM card, bluetooth, wireless, headsets, apps and games on phone, icons on screen, alarm, clock, calendar, schedule, voice call, Internet, SMS, MMS, Email, Browser, Camera, GPS, Video player, App store, ringtones, touchscreen, the idea of a mobile OS and many more features that mobile phones have had long before Apple even thought of producing one.

So what is your point? Everyone copied the above features after the first mobile phone ever built. ALL BRANDS DO IT.

I do not agree when you say Apple had copied from others and especially from Samsung, the whole mobile phone concept. Samsung was NOTHING up until the first iphone came... ever since then Samsung's phones are all big screen and touch based. Coincidence? THINK ABOUT IT.

I also agree that Samsung cant be trusted. Nor do i trust any company ... i just buy a phone based on the phone not the brand. I am just more towards Apple because they do their own thing while everyone is depending on Android to power up their hardware.

You can say copy or whatever. at the end of the day everyone copies. but we have to admit Apple copied well!

And based on the principle of what you give is what you get if Apple is copying from others that gives others the right to copy from Apple.

> In reply to gam30toronto @ 2013-10-16 20:14 from RXgS - click to readThats right, Samsung phones used to be the biggest laughing stock of all, jokes were made of them due to their utter tastelessness. I remember a video made by some Dutch guys making fun of samsung phones, like "supermultimega" or whatever, where they used it to heat coffe and a a shaver and everything. Really, they made so ridiculous phones before Apple came and showed them how to do it.

That said, i disliked Apple much more than Samsung, up untill Note 3 and its region lock came around folowed by shameless lies that the region lock could be disabled by using a regional sim first, this i so horrible behavior by a big company like Samsung, it totally destroys all credibility, obviously they cant be trusted.

Let me tell you this guys. I owned cellular phones since the 1990s. and i change every year. I've owned Motorola, Nokia, Siemens, Apple, LG, but never ever a Samsung. So don't tell me Samsung did this and that because it was never relevant

Please don't use the word COPY. Everyone copied the basics of the first cell phone ever built. So everyone copied the first mobile phone..

This is why I'll never buy another Apple product again.

In effect Apple is saying, "We can't innovate, so we want to make sure you don't innovate either."

Apple LICENSES ARM technology. Why LICENSE something you already own? Oh, Apple is stupid like their users? Ummmm, OK!
