Android has always had a gear icon for settings, it's not Samsung that have done that. Same with the messaging icon.

I love how pictures can be trademarked these days.

Apple knows that people will most likely never pay for extended service or any service so they include it on all their products which make their products seem more expensive than others. People here like to complain about Apple's inflated prices, but they conveniently forget about the #1 customer service Apple provides in the US year after year.

Lol what.

Apple's "#1 Customer Service" tried charging a friend $800 for a replacement screen on a macbook". EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS. I can buy an ultrabook for LESS than that. You can almost buy a Macbook Air for that. Their warranty is basically the same as everyone else's. It might actually be shorter (US example) http://www.apple.com/legal/warranty/products/mac-english.html

They also DON'T cover third-party software, which probably includes 99% of the apps on your iPhone.

This warranty does not apply to any non-Apple branded hardware products or any software, even if packaged or sold with Apple hardware. Manufacturers, suppliers, or publishers, other than Apple, may provide their own warranties to you but Apple, in so far as permitted by law, provides their products "AS IS". Software distributed by Apple with or without the Apple brand (including, but not limited to system software) is not covered by this warranty.

Android does the same thing. Let's look at the Galaxy S3:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/service/warranty/SGH-I747MBBATT
It covers everything for 1 year - exactly like Apple.
Quote:
(i) defects or damage resulting from cellular signal reception or transmission, or viruses or other software problems introduced into the Product;
Reading through it, it also covers the EXACT same stuff. And now that Samsung has stores, you can basically go there, and get the exact same service.

NO ONE covers third-party software. NO ONE covers usual damage stuff (Cracked screen, wear and tear, etc.). They cover stuff basically ONLY IF its their fault (i.e. DOA, bad battery, etc.).

the worst part is that they can sue the other company for something that looks nothing alike...of all of those pictures only the contacts icon looks remotely alike..yet they are very different(the similar looking person, but strikingly different placement, color)

Messaging - Samsung could have used an envelope or something similar, but I think that is used for emails.
Contacts - They could have used a small book with something like "A-Z" written on. But that wouldn't exactly give away what it is.
Notes - Similar to above
Settings - They could have used a tool of some sort like a screw driver or something.

Still even if Samsung keep it like it is now Apple shouldn't be allowed to sue/block over something like that.

Envelope is, yes, usually e-mails. A-Z is usually imagery for dictionaries. :Gasp: The phone app typically has a phone for an icon.

Even though each app independently references similar objects (phonebook, notepad, chat bubble, gear), that doesn't give Apple sole rights to using images of those items as icons, does it? They're not even the same images. It's just pretty ridiculous as a whole. Even if the images were nearly identical, it shouldn't matter. Who the hell nitpicks over such small nonsense? Apple: "UGHGHHGHG lolol Samsung has little icons omg look they look a little bit like ours!"

I predict mouse manufacturers would be all over each other for buttons being in the same place, same shape, same colors, same textures if Apple gets away with this, along with plenty of companies in other industries. I don't see Apple trying to go after Rocketdock/Stardock over having programs that give Windows a Mac-like dock. It's pretty obvious Apple is simply desperate to kill off their top competitor or at least harm them.

The point the article makes about the stock Android icons is pretty senseless. The TouchWiz messenger icon is just like the stock Android icon. Considering the Android mascot itself is green, it's no surprise if any icon on the interface is green.

To all the above; then they'd be copying blackberry...

Fact is most of the designs they could use would be copying someone... Apple just has a problem with it due to market share.
