Occam's Razor

by bluecoyote    Sep 2, 2012, 12:05 AM

States the simplest explanation is often the most correct.

Here's the simplest explanation:

1) Apple isn't out to eliminate their competition. They simply want their competition to be competition, not lazy knockoffs. Samsung was being downright lazy about designing their products (see their internal emails cited in the trial.) What's offensive is that they're copying some of Apple's dumbest, most craptacular things (see the craptastic fake-leather Calendar on the Galaxy Note 10.1 as a perfect example.)

    Evidence that Apple doesn't want to eliminate competition:
    1) Apple has licensed its design patents to Microsoft, who is rumored to price-bomb their upcoming tablet.
    2) Apple offered to license its design patents to Samsung. Samsung refused- that's why they got sued.
    3) Google sent an email to Samsung telling them to cut it out- that Samsung was willfully modifying the Android platform to resemble Apple's.

2) You seem to write a lot of opinions without really backing them up. You state essentially that Tim Cook isn't Steve Jobs (and he isn't) , but with all due respect, what insight do you have to Apple's development process? Do you know anyone who actually works for hardware or software development for Apple?

If anything, the testimony Apple offered up showed the work of countless really brilliant individuals who knew their craft (especially in contrast to Samsung's executives, who dodged questions and mostly cowered back in Korea.) Feel free to cite any of that when implying Apple hardware was the work of one brilliant individual, some yes men, and a bunch of laborers in China.
