What do you know. Even TS occasionally says something funny.
I didn't read the entire report, but the part I did read was referring to Internet advertising. I didn't see anything that applies to random posts to the Internet. Did I miss something?

Innovations on devices can be clearly seen by using them. Before Apple, Palm and Blackberry innovated. I'm probably showing my age but I had the original Palm and versions after it as well as various Windows CE devices. Each was innovative in its own way.
So let me get this straight. The day after Apple releases sales figures showing that its 64 bit phone which comes in gold for the first time (for Apple - there have been other gold phones) was a roaring success, Samsung says "we're going to have a 64 bit phone too, and we can make one of our existing phones in gold" and you consider that to be innovation? I guess the Tab was also innovative because it was the first tablet so close to the iPad that even Samsung's attorneys couldn't tell the difference. /s
Face it - Samsung has a long history of copying - especially copying Apple. They copy EVERYTHING about Apple, right down to their advertising, press releases and mobile phone retailing.
Have they innovated? Sure. The idea of waving your hand over the phone to answer it is probably innovative. There are two problems:
1. Samsung's innovations are mostly just silly and add nothing to the user experience (see hand waving example above).
2. Samsung more phones than Apple does, yet it's Apple who is constantly leading the way with innovative products THAT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WANTS TO COPY. Samsung's easily large enough that they should be able to come up with great products, but they don't. There's really nothing in any Samsung product that made the industry stand up and say 'wow'.
Calling Samsung an innovative company is absurd. I have to agree with TS - you're either a troll or you're illiterate. Which is it?
