So why is it Apple can take this idea but Samsung can't copy the STYLE of iOS in their TouchWiz interface?
Of course they would reject an app that has functionality that they are planning to implement themselves, and no doubt it used private APIs which Apple clearly says shouldn't be used.

Apple didn't steal this app: There were hundreds, if not more, of people asking for this feature. Do you really think Apple didn't think about it? Or how to do it? Do you really think they weren't planning it? Of course they were.

They didn't "lift" the name, how else would you explain wirelessly syncing? Do you really think Apple wouldn't have been able to come up with "WiFi" and "Sync" on their own?

The logo consists of two icons ALREADY in iOS simply joined together? It's not like it was some unique logo (which I would agree with you on). Apple are smart enough to put two of their icons together to make this logo, even had this app never existed. Perhaps they did decide to copy it, perhaps they didn't, no one will ever know, but the logo isn't unique enough to say it is for sure.

Functionality? It's not like Apple has stolen the code in his app. They've written functionality into the OS that does the same thing, but so much better. There's only so many ways, so many names, and so many logos, for a feature that "Wirelessly syncs" to your computer.

Take your common sense witchcraft elsewhere. None of this matters to devout Apple haters.

Everything in this new apple update is ripped off from somewhere else. The notifications from android, this icon from the original app developer.

Mmm, no. And as they say: "There's no new idea under the sun". Everything is rehashed and done better. I don't know much about Android notifications, but I do know there isn't much flexibility for how they can be implemented in iOS.

Take your Apple fanboyism elsewhere. Most people on OCN hate Apple to some degree, why must you always and I mean ALWAYS in EVERY Apple related thread stir up trouble? You surely must get a kick out of this or you're just needlessly raising your blood pressure and getting really mad.

Let's just axe the entire Android platform because Apple was the first to make a touchscreen interface with different sliding panels where you can launch apps.

There isn't a single company anywhere that didn't borrow some bit of unprotected IP to make their own product. Get over it.

Why must he take his opinions (people who like things aren't always fanboys) elsewhere? Isn't this a forum where people talk about products and ideas?

People with open minds like to keep threads logical and unbiased. It irks me (and forumviewer) when I see people spouting lies and nonfactual information about any product. I get the apple haters though. I was 13 years old once too and had irrational hate towards things.

Most people in this forum don't hate Apple either. A lot of people actually like them but don't want to get the fanboys upset and get into shouting matches.
Wahoo!
