My god they are complaining the presentation is a ripoff when Apples is a blatant ripoff as well... My biggest complaint is that they copied Apples very bland 6 year old created powerpoint format....
Instead of all, they should use everything... And they have to use 31 days or 29 days because its not right to have such exact same timelines when its industry norm to match competitors for time lines on services like this... especially where its basically a month... which is pretty normal for any kind of service... Everyone thinks everything Apple does is 100% original and that they own the idea or look and no1 else in the universe is allowed to be similar... even if Apple are the ones doing the copying, once Copied by Apple, it becomes assimilated into Apple, and therefore property of Apple... Can we have a separate section for Apple stuff?

Apple is the BORG. All must assimilate, resistance is futile.


The slide is a "riipoff" but the service is no different than any other cloud based service. Who cares if the product are the same. What matters is price/performance.

Who said anything about Apple patenting an image of a cloud? Apple hasn't complained about this. Nor has Apple claimed a patent on a slide. It's merely an article on The Verge that points out how Acer ripped off a slide from Apple's previous keynote, and essentially copied Apple's iCloud. That's it...

I'm just confused as to where 95% of people would be viewing these side to side and where they might get confused. Maybe I'm just missing something, the whole point of it is so that you don't misrepresent your service with theirs.

What you have is a generic slide, showing their own products with information on their service they're offering.

Can someone point out where the foul is?

Ridiculous.......

Cloud Services are going to be big, and just because a new company is coming out with a cloud service doesn't mean they're copying Apple rolleyes.gif

This article is pretty pointless and there's nothing clever to be said about it. So I'll just throw in an equally pointless post to say that I hate Apple and hope they go out of business.

Your still completely oblivious to the fact that they can't copy iCloud since apple didn't make it in the first place.

Why don't you read my previous comment...how else would you visually show what a cloud service could do in a simplistic form? Also the naming is just stupid...just because they have their name and cloud in their product name doesn't make it infringment...if it was named something line "lcloud" or "eyecloud" then that's reasonable...

And? Why is this significant?

So I'm Mitsubishi, and I want to make a sports car for the masses.

Ford has the Mustang, and I get it wrong, call it a Starion instead of Stallion.

Hahaha, you almost make it sound like that is worth a damn.

Just like there's only so many ways to make a phone right? You guys and your rationale never cease to amaze me. It's like you support unoriginality.

I'm not a graphic designer, but I'm more than certain there's more than one way to make a slide depicting Cloud services. Certainly one that's different than simply copying Apple.
