You need only to look at the pictures. But who among the rabid anti-Apple hate club would bother looking at actual facts
that might destroy their baseless rage?
If it were any other company than Apple, would you still ignore what happened? Somehow I doubt it.
I would respect your sentiment if it weren't for the obvious either this or that necessitated by your argument.
Apple did not invent the rounded corner rectangular, If anything they stole it from Braun. As for Icons/Tiles they've been around since well pretty much the first button set that needed to carry information but if you're in it for the reference, check your own computer. Using the same information structure on another device does not equate invention, it's just implementation.
Did Samsung copy Apple? Sure.
Should anyone give the slightest about it? Never.
Arguing about Samsung VS Apple is just as inane as the jumped up litigation trying to be known as a court case. Apple has no grounds for calling themselves inventors or right holders and Samsung did copy.
