And arent they all from the 1960s. Can you call it stealing are non-competing products that are separated by nearly a half a decade and no longer on the market or could be confused with the current products?

I'd like you to find any other writer on Anything approaching a "major" blog that ONLY posts negative screed's like DED does. It doesn't exist, because most sites don't give those types of users a podium. Most sites ban those types of users.

Think about this for a second, DED made an entire "Article" to debunk a MEME that people were posting on internet forums.

This is like AndroidCentral, Droid Life, Phandroid, Androidpolice, or even just normal Tech sites like Engadget or Thisismynext making an entire "Article" based off of something someone uploaded to 4chan and it somehow made it's way to their comments.

He posted an "article" about a MEME just so he could attack Android users. And he published it to AI instead of his personal blog. How in the world can this type of "post" be "respected."

I dunno. BUT IMMA LOVIN' IT! CUZ IT DRIVES YOU CRAZEE! harharhar

That's not what I'm claiming at all. You can skip my explanation if you want, since you'll just misquote it anyway.

Apple is stating that there are certain things that the "Consumer" identifies as being "Apple" beyond the software. They specifically listed certain aspects of the design of the phone, the packaging, etc.

I provided the link to show that SOME of those aspects were already being used by Samsung before the iphone came out.

And again, since you didn't get it the last few dozen times:
I BELIEVE APPLE HAS A STRONG CASE FOR PHONES LIKE THE VIBRANT but including OTHER phones (like the Transform and Nexus S) do not make sense.

I don't expect you to get that. So don't worry if you don't. It requires understanding the context of a conversation, and the fact that you can talk about portions of an argument (in this case, the lawsuit) without referencing it in it's entirely with EVERY freaking sentence like you assume that I am.

Hey, that third one looks just like the case of our first TV. That was in 1957but it was a 2-or-3-year-old Admiral. (I'm not sure exactly, I was 5 at the time....)

This AndroidDomination guy is a real hoot. I would say I want some of what he's smoking, but he must be mainlining some serious shit instead.

Of course you can call it stealing.. it's a design piece, concept..it doesn't have expiration date.

And you can call it stealing because Steve Jobs admits himself they steal..

So wtf are we arguing here.

This whole story is not surprising as we see time and time again the amount of time, money and effort Google expends to rewrite history. In a few years, when the company has lost all remaining credibility, maybe they can just move and change their name.

I would think not, and there would obviously be no claim for infringement. Had those been current products, and especially were the same devices, it would be a very different story. Being strongly influenced by the style of an earlier designer is fine I think.

*Read* the post before you start frothing at the mouth. He's not saying that Samsung has a mortgage on "black phone, rounded corners, metal band". Far from it. He saying, quite clearly, I thought, that design does not occur in a vacuum.

FWIW, my opinion is that DED is clearly implying that Samsung managed to ape the iPhone in one month. That's absurd. You could hardly commission a mockup in that time.

It's not a question of who was first, rather the implication in the article that Samsung violently changed tack in the period of a month. The sequence of public reveals might *suggest* it but by no means does it come close to proving it. It's just as likely a coincidence. Depending on who you side with lies your belief.

Well no, I think technically you may be wrong. From the point of view of copyright/trademark or style, if you don't currently make or sell the product then you are not entitled to protect it in that sense, and it follows that it is not theft (or infringement). I'm sure that someone will correct me if that interpretation is incorrect.

-Apple brought you the first "commercial" and usable PC, the Apple II.
-Apple brought you the first PC with a GUI (forget the PARC shit, Apple gave them shares in return and XEROX was to stupid to see what hey had), which Desktop publishing was born from!!
-Apple brought you the first PDA (yes PDA was coined by a Apple executive), the Newton.
-Apple brought you the first successful, user friendly, and ready to use MP3 player (and I can honestly say, the iPod is and has always been the best MP3 player EVER!)
-Apple brought you the first legal digital music/media distribution platform, iTunes.
-Apple brought you the first "real" phone/internet in you hands and by far the FUCKING BEST mobile operating system EVER with the iPhone.
-And last but not least the first usable and functional Tablet PC with the iPad!
So yea I say the World is a better place because of Apple and piss you for saying such shit about a man who is by far WAY out of your league, has accomplished more in one day than you have all your life and that has come close to death! Have a little respect for your elders Bro!!
Funny you mention Steve Woz. Just recently he said he would love to work at Apple under Steve. Also idiot, if you read, read iWoz. The man has nothing but total respect for Steve Jobs!!

Touchscreens, particularly capacitive ones, require a border around them for the screen to function.

The Standard Cellphone shape (since it's inception) is that it will be taller than it is wide. Companies try the square phone thing (LG LOTUS) but it has limited appeal. 90%+ of phones are rectangular. A majority of phones are also black.

There really are only so many ways you can design a touch screen phone. Sure, you can add a ton of buttons to it if you want a keyboard on the front, but those are just extra features.

Remember, by this time, the "Razr" craze was in full swing, and thin was in. Companies were looking to cut down on as much bulk as they could, and customers had shown that they were willing to trade functionality to the "cool" factor of having a slim device.

I'm not implying that Apple copied Samsung. I don't think they did. Again, there is only so many ways you can make a cellphone. Apple DOES have a case with touchwiz (especially the icons). But unlike what DED and others are trying to imply, it's highly unlikely the F700 was going to look like those other phones he linked. Did they tweak it after the iphone announcement? Maybe. But they started off with a design that was more than likely very similar.

See, when I was responding to you, I was including a lot of this same information. Since we were still on the first page of responses, I had assumed you had read them, so you would get why I linked that phone initially.

Hey, nice of you to join us annonymouse! I see you are now claiming that google rewrites history! Quite funny because this has nothing to do with android or google!

I know you keep thinking I own an android phone and that's the best strawman argument you have, showing how incapable you are of using any of the other 40 logical fallacies, but I'll keep saying it for the 50th fucking time, I don't own one.

If that was happening Google was covert since their smartphone was pretty much a Blackberry clone until after the iPhone was debuted. I suppose Schmidt could have a small private team but that seems a bit to cloak-and-dagger to me, even though corporate espionage happens all the time.. I suppose we’ll find out in a few decades if that true. Someone will reveal in a tell all book or on their death bed if that is the case.

Steve Wozniak made the first usable PC.. not Steve Jobs.. Wozniak is 100% responsible for that and was in the long run pushed aside like he was nothing to Jobs.

as far as GUI goes..stolen after first visit to Xerox

Failure and bad design - never took off. Most likely because they didn't have anyone to copy at that time like they did Xerox.

How is this progress i don't know - the service is awful and itunes is garbage that runs like shit and prevents you from using your content anywhere or on anything but apple devices. No progress here but 100% big brother crap and control.

If you want to talk progress.. Amazon is the one who brought progress.. first introduced DRM free music you enjoy today.. Apple got their ass handed to them and were forced to kill DRM.. if it was Apple's way, you would still be limited on playing your iTunes music on Apple devices only.

Stolen - touch screens and internet existed prior to iphone - apple just polished the device and used the finger instead of stylus - btw, go check what the most sold accessory for ipad, iphone is beside covers - stylus pen.

As for iOS.. purely subjective opinion.. Android is lightyears ahead of iOS in almost every aspect.. more versatile screens that fit apps/widget directly on the homescreen, customization, fantastic notification system, real multitasking and not some freezing app crap and only 7 APIs working etc etc.. iOS hasn't changed in 4 years.. it's stale, slow, ineffective and still has the worst and most pathetic notification system on any phone.

Google brought us true free and best OS on the market.. Android.. it's free, open and not really controlled by one company.. YOu need to learn to differentiate Android and Google's Services when you spit on Google.. one has very little to do with Android's openness. Google's services are not necessarily open source. Android is.

Hardly a progress from Apple side.. another attempt at control and anti-competitive behavior. You don't have to look further.. Apple doesn't allow you to do any 3rd party APIs, advertising networks, Flash or any other web technologies that can endanger their app store, so they force you to give them money.. not only consumers but service providers too.. it's a step back in technology not forward.. with that model you would never have stuff like YouTube and similar.

He screw everyone who helped him get where he was.. HE DESERVES ZERO RESPECT. Plus he is a real criminal.. committed fraud with stocks but due to his star status never arrested like Martha Stewart.

I wouldn't want to be him if they paid me money because there's nothing great about him. .the man is a control freak, obsessed with greed and disrespectful to everyone around him. I was taught morals and ethics.. he has none.

No thanks.

The only positive thing about him is that in that control freak nature he makes sure that Apple products are designed with utmost attention to detail... But in design sense I give my props to Jonathan Ive not Jobs.

You seem to be very young.
You have no clue as to what design means.
You dont seem to know what stealing really is.
Your historical facts are very skewed.
You are way to upset about this unless you own Samsung.

Did you just recently see Pirates of Silicon Valley?
Did you get fired from working in an Apple Store?

Get a life young man. Phones, computers, ipods.... it's not important.

But no matter the truth and/or case, clearly iOS and Android are in competition, although one Google Exec. says not so, but still in all Eric was on the board during the planning stages of the iPhone and shortly after its release, Google has a response to iOS. Now I am by no means an expert, but could there be some law breaking that Eric did while on the board? I mean after all, the board members of a company are "suppose" to look out for the best interest of the company, not became direct competitors!

Like the guy said before, maybe somebody that looked like Steve Jobs must have molested him, because clearly he is disturbed In all my example I stated Apple, the company, created these awesome devices. This guy thinks I said Steve and only Steve did. No Steve did not alone create these products, but no doubt he is the leader of ALL the teams that do!!
Oh and by the way, Steve Jobs is a happily married man with ALL his children, including Lisa, living with him!

From the wording there, it seems like whenever a conflicting interest would come up, Eric would recuse himself from the meeting.

If he didn't recuse himself from iOS discussions when they were actively developing android (before steve jobs knew about android) I would assume Apple would have legal grounds to sue them directly.

Did you just recently see Pirates of Silicon Valley?
Did you get fired from working in an Apple Store?

Get a life young man. Phones, computers, ipods.... it's not important.

Yeah.. typical Apple bullshit.. when you start revealing garbage about Apple or stuff doesn't work.. don't get upset..it's only electronics.. it's not important..

IT IS IMPORTANT because our lives are increasingly depending on technology and money we spend goes somewhere.. Of course it's important.

No I"m not a kid.
I am a creative director with 2 design degrees and one of my main topics was contemporary design during the studies.. on top of that, i have worked for Fortune 500 companies.. among which some things for Apple believe it or not.

My facts are not skewed.. they are truth.. they are only skewed from the perspective of those who try to defend Apple.. I've personally talked to many people who were involved in technology and what was happening during that time.

I'm not upset at all.. I'm actually very calm.. I just really dislike the BS coming from Apple and PR shills and so on trying to defend them.

Other than that..I'm fine thanks. I would say Apple fans are mad and upset because Apple stuff and market-share are going back to insignificance just like it did with desktops and WIndows.
