Apple spends tons of money developing their product and marketing how it will fit into your life.
Average consumer sees a pretty thing on TV and they want a pretty thing to call their own.
They go to the store and see a bunch of junk and two pretty things that look exactly alike.
What's the difference? Who cares?
They buy the one the salesmen arbitrarily prefers and they go home happy.
Friend asks, "Why didn't you get the iPad?"
They don't want to feel stupid, so they begin to defend the Galaxy Tab.
How did Samsung earn that sale? Do you see the problem? It's not about fooling an informed consumer, it's about fooling the uninformed masses. They're not picking between Apple and Samsung, they're picking between two pretty boxes, and they're only there because of Apple in the first place. Samsung is specifically using Apple's image to sell their products. Don't you see something wrong with that?
Apple has a patent to be a certain kind of pretty and Samsung is copying it. I can't understand how anyone supports Samsung in this mess.
