PCMag pretty much takes every opportunity to trash Apple, there isn't much reason to pay attention to what they have to say. Unless your intent is to trash Apple.

'Lawsuit displays Apple's sense of urgency'

Could it not really be that for Apple to hold a patent it has to defend said patent to continue to hold it? Must it be some nefarious scheme?

Whether Apple is within it's rights or not, the perception this leaves may be what the PCMag article intimates: Apple is acting with some desperation. Matters not if it's true. It's what some significant percentage of the population THINKS is true. That's where Apple needs to be careful.

In other words you have no case to make outside of "Jobs is bad." Typical. And reported.

I don't believe PCMag is all that influential over the larger perception of anything.

(Giant image redacted, learn how to post)

In fact, these are the phones that Samsung showed at '06 CeBIT

For the link wary, they all pretty much look like this:



The phone you pictured was announced in February of '07 and not released till December of that year.


So in your credulous zeal to believe anything that might reflect poorly on Apple you're actually making the case that Samsung did in fact copy the iPhone as soon as they got a look at it, introducing a mockup (apparently a habit with Samsung) to grab some mindshare and figuring out how to actually get on the market nearly a year later.

Congratulations.

EDIT: correct typo on year

It's a 2007 phone. Announced in 2007. Released in 2007. Typing 2006 on a jpg does not a fact make.

They may not be. I would still say that Apple needs to be cognizant of the way their actions are perceived and reported by the media.

Outside of the fact the current Samsung devices that are clearly part of this case look nothing like the device in that image or could be mistaken for an iPhone, it cracks me up that the iPhone image was altered to add the Samsung phone to the hand.

So then you have to wonder, did Galbi find that image elsewhere and repost it without checking, or did he deliberately attempt to deceive? If the latter, WTF? That's getting pretty invested in making sure Apple is always wrong.

Thanks to whoever caught the image manipulation. While I think it's highly unlikely that Samsung saw an iPhone and less than a month later had a working device at CEBIT copied from it, it does appear now that Apple could not have copied Samsung's F700 either.

A good lesson not to believe everything you see on the internet (as tho we all didn't already know better). A little personal research before accepting statements as fact.

As you were everyone

And since they didn't actually release anything till nearly a year later, I'm not so sure they had a "working device" at CeBIT. It's not uncommon (certainly not for Samsung) to show nonfunctioning mockups just to drive some mindshare-- which is what they did with their recent "redesigned" Galaxy Tab.

Like the non-functioning Samsung Tab that came out right after the iPad 2 saying it's thinner despite actual side-by-side comparisons empirically debunking that claim. How do you mess up a mockup that only has to display a lopping video and stay constantly connect to a power source? Better question, why do you lie about it?

The people waxing poetic about this are the same people who wax poetic about everything that Apple does. You don't hear any of this when someone is suing Apple. Which happens very frequently.

I'm using my iPhone so my research options are limited but it looks like the Samsung F700 was announced [and demoed] at the 3GSM World Congress the month AFTER the iPhone was demoed, wasn't even given a ship date until September 2007 which stated Vodafone in November 2007 as the first carrier and only carrier at that time.

You got it pretty accurate Solipsism. Yes, it was a "hands-on" working device according to one reviewer blogging about it at the time.

you are the one with 'no case'. you chimed in with 'stupid comment' and nothing more so stop behaving like a fool that has no clue. And my case? you mean my counter among the 100's of posts about how evil samsung is 'copying' or stealing from apple that Jobs is reported to be a thief of ideas as reported by his own former employees?

http://folklore.org/StoryView.py?sto...tion_Field.txt

"Significant percentage" meaning tiny minority? And a minority that tends to think Apple is desperate in everything it does anyway.

Interesting that The Register today makes the same point that Apple's recent propensity to sue any and all mobile competitors may be perceived as desperation by some.

Yes, you can see my comments on this thread (http://forums.appleinsider.com/showthread.php?t=123162). It's rubbish, conjecture and doesn't even make any sort of a reasonable case for how Apple is "getting desperate". It's not even written by The Register.

I'll repeat here: "Signs of desperation". Yes, Windows "won". Yes, Android "won" in the smartphone space. Yes, Android may "win" in the tablet space. And what has Apple done while "losing"? Become more successful than ever before.

It may not have any basis in fact. But my opinion is still that Apple needs to be acutely aware of the perception their recent legal actions have with the media, and thus the public.

Yes, I dare say people will stop buying iPads because they heard tech nerds on internet blogs opining that litigation among CE companies means Apple is desperate.
