Typical. Samsung gets to steal whatever IP they want.
Remember Steve Jobs saying "and boy have we patented it !!!" on the original iPhone. I guess he had more faith in the patent system he should have.
Latest news is S8 ditching 3.5mm headphone socket. And trying to beat Apple to the punch on a virtual home button. As usual Apple bears the brunt of "moving forward" with innovation and technology and Sammy just rides their coattails. I actually know people who've said, "you cannot play music on the new iPhone" until I patiently explained the situation.
Thank Facebook, and other outlets of misinformation and sensationalism, for that (literally, so many people I know got in an uproar because of whatever ill-informed rubbish they read on StalkBook)

I have that OWC dock for my 2015 MacBook. It does the job brilliantly and I only unplug one cable to be on the go.
I have Apple's multiport A/V adaptor in the bag just in case, but haven't needed it since I got this dock.

My 2015 MacBook is my first ever Mac and I'm loving it. I have the dock hooked up to a 24" monitor and several types of storage and it performs well.
I haven't yet tried the Ethernet since I've had no trouble with the MacBook's wifi.
The best part is unplug one cable and you're good to go.
