The Lee family of Samsung reminds me of the Kim family of North Korea. Both are corrupt, brazen, above the law, and seem to be facing the same third-generation syndrome typical of family owned enterprises.

DED, he's referring to your second paragraph, where you got your Lees mixed up.

I appreciate DED's passion and integrity, but on this set of issues, he's badly out of his depth. It's a shallowly researched piece that takles a formidably challenging topic, which,to be fair, no journalist writing in English gets even in the range of correct, or so it seems to me having lived decades in South Korea. Lee Jae-Yong is certainly smarter and better educated (Seoul National-Keio-Harvard) than he is given credit for here, and I strongly suspect he is part of the management of Samsung trying to move away from the policies developed, it would seem, by top executives such as Choi Jisung and endorsed by the senior Lee (Kunhee), to copy Apple slavishly. I don't believe it was out of hypocrisy that Led Jae-Yong attended Steve Jobs' memorial service. The general sense in Korea is that he may be too "wimpish'" to play the business hardball that propelled Samsung into profit through activities that seem sleazy to many, including me. In short, give at least a moment to consider he may be one of the good guys, however much he is caught up in all kinds of heritage issues.
In short, clueless articles such as this one that are filled with misplaced self-righteousness risk empowering precisely the kind of executives that produced a copycat mentality at Samsung Electronics.
To invoke Bob Dylan: don't criticize what you can't understand.
The war has begun .... Apple vs every other damn so-called tech company ....
Don't worry, the not-so-bright Android fanatics will scream that these two phones don't really look alike. Oh, and Xerox PARC and rounded rectangles. Derp.

Was it Lee Li or Li Lee?
And let's not forget, Google bought Motorola (an American company), stripped what they needed from it and then dumped it on the Chinese (Lenovo). Goodbye one of the final remaining American mobile hardware manufacturers. Motorola is Chinese now.
Thanks again, Google. You tools.
When seeing this graphic and the phones to the left, I always want to see two more images. One that is Samsung before and after Blackberry. The other is Samsung before and after Palm Treo. I mean their before products here look like copies of those products and I suspect the before on those was just as stark as the iPhone images.
