It's all self serving, as they are publicly funded, their citizens are forced to pay for the vile programming even if (like me) they despise it and ban it from their homes. They fear a more capitalist UK would reduce funding, so they try and keep the country as brain dead as they possibly can

So they take aim at the prime example of capitalism, the US. Creating nonsense anti US memes whose spread is accelerated by jealousy (ironically because UK standard of living is lower due to increased socialism!).

I listen to the BBC a lot. I've never heard them 'bash' America or promote socialism and capitalism. Hell, they're actually not allowed to and a shit storm brews on the rare occasion they do. What world are you living in?

You need to open your ears mate. Not only is it anti US, it is anti Israel.

Just because you are incapable of perceiving the bias, does not mean it does not exist. If you are British and have spent most of your life living there, it's most probable that your sense of political balance is skewed to the left.

Why would the placeholder image be of an Apple app? Someone has gone out and sourced that image. Why not use a placeholder Android screenshot?

Then there's the replacement of the status bar. That's been carefully done.

There was a theoy on the Android comments linked to in a previous comment that this may be like disgruntled Disney employees putting images into films. Samsung's designers must be fed up of being ordered to copy Apple. They are good at their jobs, they have shown that in the past, but of late they're being asked to mimic other people's work. It goes against the grain for creative people like them. The theory could carry some weight.

I have removed 120 friends of mine from facebook this year, mostly because of anti US crap that they pollute it with. Most believe that george bush blew up the twin towers and that the US never went to the moon. Believe me or not, a wave of socialist propaganda is sweeping the UK. It's very hard for me within UK social circles to express my like for the US as I'm bombarded by hatred and nonsense memes.

I have spent a large part of my life perceiving the UK externally, from 11 countries this year alone. It's one of the most repressed countries on the planet and most of it's citizens don't even know it. Most just accept that you are forced to pay for state TV , and accept that you have more CCTV than any country on the planet, continuously watched and monitored. That freedom of speech is being eroded daily. The ridiculous and disabling red tape and regulations etc the list goes on.

With respect, I think your view of the UK is myopic. Whether that's a poor choice of friends or not I don't know. I certainly don't know a single person who thinks 9/11 was an inside job and I have friends from the US who mix in pretty well with my social group. The US is like any country, a lot to like and a lot to dislike.

Samsung = EVIL
Gnusmas = DEVIL in Korea

The fact that Samsung has no sense of shame for outright copying of Apple indicates it lacks morals and religious virtue. It simply is EVIL.

Oh far from it, like I said above, I have perceived the UK and compared it from pretty much every country on the planet. My perception is a million miles from myopic! I am also a generalist. If anyone was capable of a balanced and educated view of the UK by comparison to the world, it's me.

Also, by the way, I have been involved with many newsworthy and sometimes controversial events which I know damn well have been span by the BBC because I had access to the full facts. Social engineering is rife within the organisation.

If I'm honest, the current news stories featured on that site are not great examples, and the BBC have been reined in a little since the Conservative/Liberal coalition.

Currently they are blaming the economy on the current government, when the reality is the last government (socialists) overspent and miss managed the economy. The coalition is just trying to pick up the pieces and get the economy on back on track. This kind of bias programming is hard to prove, and hard for most people to perceive without a reasonable economic understanding, and memories of greater capacity than goldfish.
Also currently, they are helping fuel anti bank protesters.
And listen to how they portray Rupert Murdoch next time they report him (there are plain obvious self serving reasons why they don't like Rupert).

While it doesn't make Samsung look very good here, stuff like this can easily happen. Someone can forget to swap out a place-holder. I don't see it as that big of a deal.

I largely feel the same way about Apple getting called on device images that were not entirely accurate when placed side by side. This stuff can happen very easily.

In both cases the mistakes should have been caught, but that's life.

Samsung's other copying is of more a concern to me than a screenshot placeholder... Just my opinion.

This is obviously a gaff by a graphic designer who was probably awaiting the correct image and used a placeholder as a stopgap. Things went wrong and the placeholder got out into the public.

These things happen. It's not a story.

Given all the other slavish copying that's been pointed out here, the burden of proof is on you.

About 27,000 people joined a class-action suit against Apples South Korean unit and headquarters, seeking 1 million won per person ($930) in damages, according to a notice posted online by Mirae Law, which represents the plaintiffs. The suit was filed in Changwon, south of Seoul, where the law firm is located.

27,000 Korean Apple users are suing Apple? For what? That silly location data story on the iPhone a while back that turned out to be a total non issue and that has long been resolved?

Those 27,000 are leeches looking for a quick buck that they don't in any way deserve or are entitled to. Screw them.

Many Korean people don't deserve Apple products? What kind of DICK are you?

Why use an image from the iOS maps application when you could simply type "android maps" into a google image search and grab one of the results? It took me less than 10 seconds. If I was looking for placeholder graphics for an edit, say for an Audi tvc, I wouldn't use an image of a BMW. Or back to the current situation, heck, grab a section of a screengrab of google maps as a placeholder?

As the above poster mentioned, the designer had to go to the effort of putting in the status bar to fit the iOS image. Your interpretation is looking the more improbable, especially with the now numerous previous "slip ups" weighing in.

it doesn't matter if they invented the square...it is quite obvious that Samsung apes Apple designs...why? No clue...but they do.

This isn't the rounded rectangle thing I go on about, even with the same square shape they could've differentiated significantly.

I would certainly say that any country that starts to looks elsewhere for identity has long since lost its way.

Having restrained my desire to respond to you so far I just can't any longer - this is just absolute right wing bullshit.

The current Government are the ones who deregulated the banking sector back in the 80's - the consequences of which we are seeing now. It's a typical right wing tendency to blame the left wing for over spending etc when in reality it's only the left who invest in infrastructure, schools, hospitals , welfare for the disadvantaged or elderly, minimum wage for the low paid etc etc.

I suggest your view is myopic in the extreme - yes the previous Government overspent in some areas but I would suggest they had a better grip on how to sort that out then this current bunch of no-hopers.

I've said it before, the Asian culture doesn't have a sense of creating from scratch. They copy--literally. I learned this during college speaking with some of my classmates. Even today in the work environment, I have a Chinese colleague that validates this cultural difference.

It seems that you were implying that I don't have any conscience, since I believe that Apple should pull out of South Korea. You may disagree with me, but I am no less morally correct than anybody else.

For the record I found your remarks a bit over the top also. You are essentially blaming a whole people for the actions of a company.

I have Korean friends and family and I'm pretty sure they aren't all evil.

In all fairness, once you leave the USA, most countries and their media outlets could be referred to as "anti-Israel," and most don't see this as a bad thing.

Israel is a pretty horrible place. It has a racist, quasi-fascist government. It violates international law with great regularity. It violates almost every treaty it signs. It was the only "western" country to strongly support apartheid in South Africa and now supports a very similar system within it's own borders.

Being "anti-Israel" (not anti-Semitic), is a very common point of view outside of the USA.

Yes, but that is how most Americans do view the world. Actually, I take that back because most Americans could not name the continents or find countries on a map, so it's unlikely they could even find China, Korea, Russia or even Europe. And I also think this is how most of the candidates seeking the Republican nomination view the world.

Test it for yourself: get a blank map of the world and go to your local high school or college campus and see if anyone can get it even remotely right. Don't even ask them to find France or Spain - just ask them to locate Europe, then ask them to find China or India. Then ask those same people how many U.S. states there are and the name of the Vice-President. My bet is that an astonishing number don't know. And that's just the people who are supposedly getting an education. In fact, I wonder if all the presidential candiates could pass such a test. (I think they would probably get the # of states and the name of the VP correct, but I bet they wouldn't get the geography right.)

I look at it the other way around.

Any country that has a strong, internal sense of National identity is usually a problem, and they are approaching the future backwards.

Every country in that category is a country that causes problems internationally. The stronger the sense of national identity they have, the more problems they cause overall, both internally and in their interactions with the other countries/nations.

The whole point of the 21st century is that the nations of the world have to find a way to merge into a cohesive whole. Our countries, and the cultures they represent need to come together, not draw lines around themselves.

Braggards, aggressors, and countries that think a lot of themselves are the main obstacle to that goal and thus the main obstacle to world peace IMO.

I'm afraid you'll find that journalism in general is a very hypocritical, frustrating business. I find the BBC guilty of laziness at times certainly, and an insipid style on occasion driven from a desire to be seen as neutral. Apple is a good example of a company whose extraordinary success over the past 5 years has been very understated there in an attempt to be seen as reporting on just another company, when in reality these are seismic days in the technology world.

I do think some experiences with the BBC have coloured your perception of the organisation as a whole. BBC News and the broader BBC programming are different beasts. Whilst I'm sick of unnecessary sexual overtones in programmes like Doctor Who and the incessant, almost dogmatic preaching of evolution without any up-to-date information, I think on the whole it's a very fine institution that we'll all sorely miss if it fails to survive.

I think you take it too much to heart. Most people can laugh at that and know it's not at all representative of the broader American mindset. I know for a fact that some of my American friends will find that funny. I can assure you though, there are some Americans for whom that graphic rings worryingly true. America is a vast place, more a continent than a country, and there are some of the finest human beings there, and some of the very worst.

Try to have a sense of humour and trust people's ability to judge for themselves a little more. The line peddled in the media isn't necessarily what the man on the street feels. Take evolution, according to a book I read an excerpt from recently, the reality is that the large majority of the American people believe in god; you'd never guess that from some programming which makes such views out to be archaic.

. . . Samsung is opening stores dedicated to showcasing and selling its products. The spare, modern stores will be marked with a large white Asian Pear on the facade. Samsung has already filed a lawsuit in Lower Slobovia claiming the entire idea of Apple Stores was stolen from them, and is asking the judge to ban the use of the white apple from all Apple stores and products. The basis of their lawsuit is the "widely known fact that everything in the West was invented first in Asia."
