Fame and Fortune.

Here is something I wrote and shared with others.

For thirty years, Apple has been the struggling Artist. It believed in remaining far removed from society when it came to its beliefs. It wanted to do things its way and nobody else's.

Along the way, it took ideas and incorporated them in its act. It piqued limited interest here and there through a couple of generations and continued the road of performing trying to get that major break.

Enter the iPhone:

A revolutionary product to not only grab attention of a new generation but also some of the older. This propels Apple to world Fame and Stardom. The struggling artist now has reached the goal it longed for.

However, Apple has not learned the consequence of Fame; Emulation a...

Looked for the upvote button, then forgot that I was on Phonescoop and not Reddit Rolling Eyes

Great post man. You sometimes talk out of your arse spewing nonsense about Sprint and whatever and you're still wrong by the way but you hit the nail on the head with this one. Completely agree. Good insight

This sentiment is echoed thorughout Phone Scoop and a lot of the gadget blogs.

Apple isn't upset that other companies are responding to their products and even imitating some features. Apple is, instead, upset that other companies are being pretty downright lazy copying them. Say what you want about Apple's lawsuits, but it's hard to deny that the design of Android phones has gotten better since manufacturers stopped blatantly copying old Apple designs down to the chrome bezels (Samsung, lookin' at you!). We're now seeing more interesting, original takes such as the HTC One series, and the Holo UI.

Apple isn't the R&D department (and in Samsung's case, the friggin Industrial Design department) for these phone manufacturers. And if you...

You are up for elimination... The time has come for you to lipsync for your life. Good luck and don't phuck it up.

You always say that Apple isn't the R&D of other companies. Yes, we get that. There are some absurd patents being asserted, though. Searching through the contents of the phone? Swipe to unlock? These are obvious design elements, just like a pull-down notification drawer...

If Samsung can prove they arrived on their decision using their own R&D, meaning their own customer/user resource to identify the best way of operating their systems, search the entire phone and prove that it is not one of the driving features for people buying the phone, which it isn't the case will likely be thrown out. Secondly, It's sad you can't see this as a stall tactic by Apple. Essentially, all they want to do is hold the phone from market long enough for some sales to drop. Regardless of the money they put up 95 million in losses, by the time you add production cost, loss of sales and loss of clients to other mobile OS's the total loss will likely mount to higher than that.

I'm not sure this proves whether I'm right or wrong. As you have pointed out, this is repeating what Apple Reps have been claiming throughout the tech media presses.

Roe Vs Wade of electronics. Corporate jargon is always fun to listen to. I love to hear companies defend themselves.
Google is not perfect. Samsung is not perfect, nor is any business. Apple is not exempt from the flaws of business.

We can disagree all day. One thing we should NOT disagree on is, Steve Jobs' video taped commentary on Apple's quest to push for the t...

Xerox PARC. Look it up, then tell me Apple doesn't do the same exact thing.

Apple fans do not want to be bothered with evidence that Apple has a history of taking someone else's ideas. Their goal is to dismiss other's visions as irrelevant. I don't get why they seem to ignore simple facts. It's like an idiot-savant persona. I still witness young people of this generation thinking Apple was never a company before the ipod touch. They perceived it as a new, never existed corporation.

In some defense to Apple however, they do have a knack for improving many designs and concepts(on other's ideas), but they are almost always leapfrogged as we are again witnessing today.
