Ya it bothers me because they try to slow down competition and innovation
I'm a proud owner of an SII and even I understand why Apple sued Samsung.
It's an imitation in almost every way. Yet OCN seems to have a big problem with Apple suing Samsung.
This thread is just an example of the hypocrisy. No doubt we will get a ton of people coming in here and Google should sue Apple and they would support it. Yet when people rip Apple off, OCN gets all butt hurt when they defend their product.
I understand that this is a direct imitation and I wouldn't blame Google for issuing a lawsuit in this instance, but OCN can't have it both ways. You either don't care about intellectual property theft or you do care. You can't change stances dependant on the company unless you want to admit the idiocy and hypocrisy behind it.
This rant is not directed at you, it's more of a rant about the idiocy surround phone technology and the general population on OCN that I have seen respond to these types of threads.
