Apple can f**k off

So something looks a little like their overhyped iPhone, who cares?!!!??!? You don't see Google getting all pissy and suing Apple for ripping off their notification system do you? RIM isn't suing Apple for copying BBM which has been out for YEARS... Everyone is going to come out with something that is similar to something that is already out, it's called competition. If you are going to act like a 4 year old girl about it then you shouldn't be in this business.
And you don't see nintendo suing sony cus sony "move" is very similar to wii.
And you don't see Mercedes suing hyundai cus their cars are very similar to Mercedes!
When you at the top, you don't need to sue!
I guess it' time for apple to fall fr...
Speaking as a once follower of Apple, they make great products.

Their adamancy in keeping tradition is very honorable, but it should not fuel their poignant attitude. They need to evolve with advancing interests. I tired of the proprietary world of...
Let me explain this to you, Apple created a 3 billion dollar ecosystem that developers (like myself) can now make livelihoods off of.

Google didn't.

Blackberry didn't.

Microsoft didn't.

3 billion dollars = not overhyped.

Who buys Samsung phones?

Samsung phones are almost unanimously terrible- they tend to quit after about getting 80% of the design right. From back in the days of feature phones that lacked proper T9 implementation to the Google-advised-against-this Galaxy Tab.
"quit after getting 80% of the design right"

That's the quote of the day, sir.

Well 70 million people bought a Samsung phone in Q1 of 2011 and they made $9.7 billion during that time frame. The Galaxy S also outsold the iphone in Japan during Q1...another sign that the Japanese are smarter than Americans Laughing Not to mention ev...

Steve Jobless and Apple can suck it

Bunch of losers have nothing to do but whine about people copy their trash products.. Right..
I don't like iOS either. Apple has mastered the technique of making minimal changes to an older product, renaming it by increasing its edition number, and then unleashing it upon their frantic, loyal customers who are frothing at the mouth in a long ...

When You're No Longer Competitive... seek to eliminate the competition.
Does Samsung make a single phone that isn't crap?

Um... really? If Apple wanted to eliminate Samsung from competition, all they have to do is buy Samsung... Apple has enough cash-on-hand alone to buy Samsung at full market value... nearly three times over... no litigation, no claims, no fuss. Is Ap...

Apple can go to hell

Not only do those devices not look like the apple devices, what the hell does apple hope to acomplish? I guess it not enough for their company to be the most valuable in the entire world, they have to go and piss off everybody now too? I know I speak for many people when I say I will never buy another apple product as long as I live, and not only will I save money for doing that, but I will have more powerful technology from a company that cares (read: ANYBODY ELSE).
Awesome, you can continue to use worse quality phones running inferior ecosystems with lower quality applications that get worse battery life that suffer premature obsolescence and unpromised software updates even months after purchase.

I really have a problem with this claim...

"products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success."

So what?

I can't think of another industry where companies don't try to capitalize in some shape or form on their competition's business directives.

Companies have no control if competiton comes to their area. They do however, have the control to find a way to culminate an attraction for consumers. A burger is a burger. What you do with that burger, is what attracts the consumer. You have the same burger for years and then competition decides to take that burger and make it more attractive. Now it's the originator's turn to return with something even more attractive.

"Imitating" a certain aspect is NOT illegal. Using both th...
you make some very valid points.

however, compared to the majority of the other manufacturers out there, apple is still very new to the cellular phone game. first iphone released in 2007. samsung sits easily at number 2 in market share with over 18...

I'm still waiting for the Chinese iPhone Clone running iOS

I'm personally waiting for them to run iPhone clones on the real iOS. I wonder what Apple will do when that day comes.

Samsung is just the beginning....

Once Apple stops Samsung from making more mobile products they will move onto Motorola and so on.
This will be called the phone wars which will play in out in the courtroom as opposed to the market. Call it greed.
