Samsung builds all Apple LCDs. I think it is about time they stop these monopolizing morons by refusing to provide the LCDs. Let's see how an Apple device works without an LCD.
iSJ5, 01 Sep 2012here is the list of samsung copy
-siri - svoice
-multitouch (first multi-... moreDude...seriously, know what you're talking about & do some research before commenting. You keep repeating things already demonstrated as wrong in this blog and adding even more ridiculous rubbish - its embarrassing!
Where to begin.....
- siri = svoice: svoice based on vlingo which was on Samsung phones years before Apple bought Siri (they didn't invent it). And the Chinese company who did invent core ideas and programming as used in Siri is now suing Apple.
- multitouch : LG Prada and Nokia well before Apple, and multi touch invented in 1977!
- shake : app developers started using accelerometers for this in their apps, not Apple.
- icons : Nokia had them on phones, when colour screens first came out in 90's, and many other phones since.
- rectangular with rounder corners : oh ummm.... just about every mobile phone ever invented! Seriously, think about it...
- touchscreen : don't even want to dignify this with an answer except to say touch screens are older then you are, and around years before even laptops were invented.
- first with wifi : You can't be serious??
- home botton : I won't dignify this with an answer
- memory choices (16,32,64 GB storage choices) : this is memory size, based on technology development by science and computer memory manufacturers like...oh! Samsung! Enforced technology restriction that everyone has to follow - it's not some magic numbers that Apple thought up.
- dropbox = icloud : firstly dropbox is Google not Samsung. Second it is a way to store and sync all your files, not just music, pics, etc..
- background page : mobile's have had customizable backgrounds since colour screens started on phones.
- water wave : wtf ?
- screen lock : is as old as the mobile phone. Slide to unlock was first on old windows phone
- menu short cuts (4 apps): Nokia been using 4 customisable menu shortcuts since early 2000's.
Don't beleive me? Have a look: http://m.9gag.com/gag/5195630?ref=fb.s
I'm not a Samsung fan. I value tech objectively and use what I find is best at the time. I respect Apple (Steve Jobs) for their vision in combining all this tech and ideas INVENTED and DEVELOPED by OTHERS and put it everyone's hands in a easy to use way.
However others have done similar before. And now others are raising the stakes beyond Apples vision ... shock horror! Oh, wait a minute...isn't that called innovation?
All the Tech companies copy each other - it well past time to move on from this tired argument!
AnonD-69184, 01 Sep 2012The galaxy nexus won the same award with a 5mpx camera :/No in the world knew about untill u mention was any even there to accept such an award may u accepted it for them.for nokia 808 pure view every knows and there arward was makin sense 41 mp not 5.
Apple feels bad bcoz samsung wants to be takin creadit for some else work and i can see that windows phone is catching up and getin a lot lot of new fans.now it has became a race of 3 os.
This greedy behaviour by apple against Samsung is proof enough,all their products are rip off prices anyway,me & my brother decided never to buy any apple product again, period.
Apple Lover, 01 Sep 2012Wooo GO APPLE!!!!
I dont know why you people still dont open your EYES.
ITS BEEN PROVEN FA... moreIt's been 'proven' in just one country. All other countries where Apple sued - Japan, Germany, Belgium, China, Australia - have disagreed and Apple lost.
There was a lot of evidence the courts would not allow Samsung to submit.
Not sure this outcome is as totally DEFINITIVE as you imply. Or are you suggesting that all the other courts got it wrong?
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2012Samsung copy Nokia's Pureview 808? Galaxy Camera? FYI Galaxy Camera is NOT a phone. PLUS, Gala... moreSamsung can't copy nokia bcoz nokia design are not easy to cope like iphone and don't compare nokia 808 pure view to samsungs galaxy camera which should be compared dissposable camera.nokia won an award for pure technology.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2012I think you're being illuminati by Apple. =)Apple can only win lawsuit in the USA, but not any other place or country. Seems like Apple is controller of the US, and someday in the future, all Americans will be governed by the US law, only allow to use Apple iPhones. lol
Stoner Stanley, 01 Sep 2012Apple have won! (And thats how the world end)in only america.. rest of world You are good for nothing.. america is supporting their company to survive.. thats how apple won..
Trundle, 01 Sep 2012Basic Apple developement cycle and reactions:
Luv your work :-)
I thinks this is new market strategy of apple to recover its loses of market share. After Steve jobs they don't think that they can produce something extra ordinary to take it back from samsung, so they are trying to recover money form Steve's era.
Some analytics predicted that after Steve Jobs dies, within 3 years Apple will be just another company. Year one...
why would apple sue samsung only for the design? Phone buyers are not fool that they don't see the difference between these phones eventhough they look similar in shape. what the!! We won't buy samsung phones just because we thought it's an iphone just because of the physical appearance. Those who sue samsung are fools and LOOSERS!! Playing dirty, thinks like a child. zzzz
[deleted post]Samsung copy Nokia's Pureview 808? Galaxy Camera? FYI Galaxy Camera is NOT a phone. PLUS, Galaxy Camera comes with OPTICAL zoom. =)
AnonD-8729, 01 Sep 2012the A5 chipset used by apple is manufactured by samsung.............. what if it stops provid... moreanother company provide it and samsung sucks... its simple. you should know that in the age of tchnology brainwares are important not hardwares or softwares, its about value not money or patent...
