Yeah I know why it was mentioned this time.But this isn't the first time the "Prada Argument" has been used. It bugs me every time it's mentioned.An LG executive said "Apple copied us" about 8 years ago.And it was a silly argument then too!
"I am your twin brother.""Oh, obviously! The moment I sat down I thought I was looking into a mirror!"But seriously... I never understood the LG Prada argument. There's no way the LG Prada had any influence on Apple.iPhone development started in 2004 in Cupertino California... while the LG Prada was developed sometime after that in South Korea.Did Apple have spies in South Korea?And by the time the LG Prada was shown to the public in late 2006... the iPhone's design was...
And if they believe that... they'd be wrong I guess people forgot about the Dell Streak... which had a 5" screen way back in 2010.In fact... the 5" Dell streak was released on the same day as the original Galaxy S that only had a 4" screen.But alas... screen size isn't very special anyway. You can basically pick any number and make an LCD panel that size.T-shirts came in small, medium and large... so was it really a surprise that the next size was extra large?It doesn't...
It sounds like Samsung will be adding an additional model to the Galaxy S series.Right now... the Galaxy S6 has a 5.1" screen. But this rumor says there might also be a 5.5" Galaxy S6 Plus.That doesn't sound like much of a jump to even bother... especially considering they already make the Galaxy Note 4 with a 5.7" screen.So Samsung might be planning to make a new 6" Galaxy Note soon... to separate the two product line further. Who knows.But I don't think they will...
I wasn't correcting you... I was just piling on
"Hello... I am from Windows... we have noticed that your computer has infections..."
Anybody can come up with an "idea" but it's the implementation that matters.Sometimes another company has what you want... and you simply buy them. That happens all the time across the industry.Google has purchased plenty of companies over the years.Here's a list of 181 companies that Google purchased... and the Google product that the technology ended up in:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mergers_and_acquisitions_by_GoogleAnd the same is true for Microsoft,...
Streaming music is still in the infancy stage.There will be more people signing up for their first streaming service rather than switching from one service to another.Spotify has 60 million users (and of those... only 15 million who pay for it)But that's tiny compared to the billions of music-capable devices there are in the world.If you already use Spotify, Rdio, etc... and you like it... you probably won't leave. But think of all the people who have never used a...
Many companies say the same thing.... it's pretty standard language.Here's Apple's shocking similar paragraph for iCloud:1. License from You. Except for material we may license to you, Apple does not claim ownership of the materials and/or Content you submit or make available on the Service. However, by submitting or posting such Content on areas of the Service that are accessible by the public or other users with whom you consent to share such Content, you grant Apple a...
