AnonD-977, 10 Sep 2011Can you read? You know the report this thread is based on, you find it by clicking the link... moreYour probably not a big math genius. If you look at the curve, the sales still increased, BUT if you actually differentiate the curve, the growth of the curve is a negative one and continues. Its like throwing a ball up in the air, it still goes up at the beginning, even though it get accelerated by -9.82m/s². Also a negative value and thats the actual growth and Apples goes down pretty fast and those numbers in these news are prove of it.

There is no way for Apple to go wrong because they decide what people want, they decide that they want that which will be released. They are in position to do that.
That's the whole story behind Apple and that's why they are the most powerful company in the world.

Its because of the dumb iFans. Apple is just scared, to not deliver, what iFans expect, because all iFans go nuts about iPhone5, even though you dont even know, what it can do and what not (i know what i cannot do "FLASH"). They probably desprately search for something to make iPhone5 special, but they cant, thats why they are sueing their way thru industry.
iFans predict something, Apple cannot deliver. I accept the fact, that Apple is great, but their fans are destroying it. Steve Jobs probably just said he is ill, because so he can remain the futuristic guy, everyone thought he is, like a good casino gamer, who knows when its over. He knows, that they can compete, but not deliver the innovation everyone awaits and thats why he stopped being CEO, so it is not his fault.

I... moreYou might be right, but if we then think about how much sammy makes, when Apple sells an iPhone, who do you think is the big winner, at the end? You can always find a way, to let something look better, but there are good ways and just pathetic ones, like the one of you right now.
The number still counts, because one person most likely buys one phone, in some countries 2 phones, but if they bought galaxy ace, they will probably not buy an iphone later.

iphone mearley claim to have come up with this innovation
6 months before the release of the iphone
its like saying you cant make a touchscreen phone just cos apple made one its pathetic

Eyecandy is no concept and even if it would be, its not Apples. Capacitive units are no invention of Apple and multitouch is a thing like a plane, a must for being able to get to the next lvl and Apple is just childish to wanna lock the door and open it just for themselves. They are the first to use multitouch, but we cannot actually say, they invented it, because industry just had to move in the direction of multitouch to make a touchscreenphone usable. Android real appdrawer goes up and down and has no pages, so how can you say something like Android copied that concept, you maybe never used an android phone, like 90% of all iPhone users and just have prejudices. Appcentric is a thing of Smartphones and believe it or not, PDAs where appcentric and if we see it as it actually is, Apple just brought out the first PDA, which offered phone features. Apple has very good marketing, proof of that is the total nonsense of all iFans/iStubs.

You cannot make all manufactueres in the world make single touch phones, because apple made first multitouch. Multitouch doesnt belong to anyone, its just a thing everyone should use.
I mean, when the first 3D game came out, they didnt sue anyone with a 3d game and said, everyone in the world has to stay with 2D games, or gets sued.
MUltitouch is a must for everyone.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2011give me an instance where android has copied iphoneI wrote it already - the whole capacitive multitouch app-centric eye-candy sliding smarthpone bar is Apple's concept, Android did not diretly and literaly copied it, but it had to go within the same concept. However, Samsung did copied iOS when they customized UI in TouchWiz. Combination of four-row icon menus with multiple pages with dots and static icons in "dock", which appear on iPhone-like curved egdes of the phone (with same chrome effect) look exactly like iPhone! I don't understand how people don't see it.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2011give me an instance where android has copied iphoneIt doesn't matter anymore, since the manufacturers are all now taking Plan B steps against Android. Samsung is beefing up Bada development, and will announce a Win 8 tablet. Korea themselves announced a mobile OS against android.
I am sure that those in the tech industry are also hoping that Nokia's wave with WP7 will do well, so that the other manufacturers can also join in the fray.
The tech industry is tired of android.

This picture below is just stupid, because these pictures are just made in the perfect angle and galaxy s has to be in a particular menu to look like this and with the tablets, its true that galaxy tab 10.1 is thin now too, because technology allows it, i wanna know, how old that sammy tablet is, because it looks older than 10 years and tech didnt allow more at that time, but people dont seem to think as far.
Ah and the OSs werent really optimized like nowadays and galaxy tab offers much more than iphone, so it cannot be a copy, because which copy can actually do more than the original? Is it still a copy then?
Funny is, Apple sues everyone for copying their stupid designs, but when they actually copy a technology, something real, something which actually costs way more money all they sued others for, thats ok, right iStubs?
AnonD-16587, 10 Sep 2011Of course, Apple has copied Android in this particular case, but that doesn't change the fact ... moreAre you stupid or something?
Nokia Menu for actually selecting an App is way older than iPhone Homescreen. I had that before the first iPhone came out and all what Nokia did in Symbian3 is to give it a more present look and Apple didnt invent present. If someone copied here, Apple copied Nokia and Nokia should sue Apple. so it needs to change ALL looks of iOS.
All what you have proofed is, that you just believe anything iFans tell you and cannot make up your mind by your own, because that probably one of the most pathetic things I heard of any iFan.

It has exactly those thing that makes iPhone (3G, 3GS) recognizable. HTC and other don't have that problem, but Samsung does. And it's only about Galaxy S. For instance, their Nexus S is totally different story and has authentic Samsung design, which only proves that between two almost identical devices (Nexus S and Galaxy S) can be two different exteriors and UI, in which one is a spitting image of iPhone 3G(S) and other is not.
