A good day for design in general - and the phone industry


Aug 24, 2012, 6:12 PM
Quite honestly, Samsung's been ripping off designs well before Apple. Even if you don't like Apple, chances are Samsung ripped off of a manufacturer that was once innovative you once liked, be it Sony Ericsson (A800), Motorola (the "Blade" A900) , RIM (The Blackjack), LG (The A920) .

Samsung's lack of originality extends way before the iPhone (it was a Phone Scoop April fools article years back.) If there's to be competition, it's simply not okay to just directly rip off the design of a successful product- they need to produce something *better.*

(Heck, they just launched the Galaxy note and grafted on the same cruddy faux leather onto the calendar.)

In fact, since Apple started going on the offensive, other phone manufacturers h...

Actually, all the jurors save 1 had IPhones and it was in Apple's home town. Many factors already against Samsung before the trial even started.

Honestly, how can anyone expect a fair trial when such factors were already in place?

There was no impartial verdict. How could there be? The jurors owned Apple products, Apple provides thousands of jobs for the local economy there. So why in blazes would a jury render a verdict against them?

So if you own an iPhone, you're automatically a biased Apple fanboy.

What about Google? Google's headquarters are in Mountain View, and also employs lots of people. Samsung's devices run Google's OS, and even though Google isn't a direct party in this suit (nor is it directly attacking the Android OS) , there are still local repercussions.

Simply put, you're mad because Samsung was guilty, so now you're crying conspiracy as a coping mechanism. Grow up.

Speaking of fanboys...you might as well place yourself in that category as well all know you believe Apple can do no wrong.

Yet to answer your question, conspiracy no. Biased yes. If you own a certain product and keep buying new versions of said product, that would make you a loyal biased consumer. So yeah, in MY opinion, the jurors in that case were biased. Apple most likely knew about this and played on that fact.

Also, the case was tried in their HQ city, so yes, another reason for a bias, or you could say tainted, jury pool.

Considering guilty verdicts. Did not Apple get found guilty in Korea of infringments. So we now that Apple does the same thing as they are accusing Samsung of.

Apple doesn't innovate, they bully and intim...

Last week, I saw some story about a Buddhist monk or whatever saying that Steve Jobs has been reincarnated as a divine being.....I laughed and said to myself 'of course there are those who thought he already was a divine being;.....

I think Bluecoyote is one of those people....

So there you go. Your following statment of:
"Actually, all the jurors save 1 had IPhones" was a flat-out lie you made up.

If you're going to make up facts to support your view of a company clearly in the wrong, you might be a fanboy.

Aug 28, 2012, 6:11 PM
Uh, no, you wouldn't be.

However, your statement:

""If you're going to make up facts to support your view of a company clearly in the wrong, you might be a fanboy.""

very much so clearly shows that yes, you are a fanboy.

Actually, Bluecoyote may have a love for Apple, but his past few original posts have been pretty integral in regards to some key elements of how this verdict played out. I don't necessarily agree on the entire outcome of the trial, but I do agree on much of what Bluecoyote placed as significance of how it does affect us and Samsung. I believe his points(in this case), are not based on "fanboism". We can't become ignorant in the magnitude of this litigation verdict.

I think in all honesty, we exhaust a lot of time on these forums for learning, instructing and of course, flagging other's comments. Maybe we should all take extra time and focus our energies in soliciting our government congressmen and senators for investigating and modifying...
