Now, if Apple were to patent a phone with a specially designed low-power screen, then that would be different. Patenting touchscreens in general however is idiotic at best.


No I get what you mean. What I'm trying to say is that if Samsung is so innovative, then why even use a design such as slide to unlock? Innovation doesn't have to come from a low power screen, or crazy new hardware technique. It can come from the simplest things. When the iPhone was first launched, current smartphones were clunky, Apple innovated by making the user experience as simple as possible and used designs like "slide to unlock". That, is innovation. They took something, and found a better way to do it

Merriam Webster defines Innovation as, " a new idea, device, or method". With smartphones, slide to unlock, was a new method. Samsung using slide to unlock, is not innovative. If they really wanted to innovate, they would have come up with a new method.


And I think I just used the word innovative so much that it has lost all meaning tongue.gif

Okay, then let's break down that photo instead of just posting it as if it were truth.

Samsung F700
-Introduced February 2007
-Released November 2007

iPhone
-Introduced January 2007
-Released June 2007

I would have to say that the point in that round goes to Apple.


As for Siri, I have not personally read up on Xaioi Bot, but if Apple infringed on them then so did Samsung...and if you look at Siri's popularity, did Samsung's "S Voice" get created for any reason other than to lure consumers in with a similar feature?


Split keyboards have been around for ages..not sure which keyboard it's showing otherwise I would look into it.


That WiFi Sync icon was from an OS X app that was released in July 2011, the iOS 5 icon was introduced with iOS 5 in June 2011.


The dancing silhouette commercial does have some similarities, I'll give you that and had Apple been marketing shoes then I would say you have a pretty strong argument.

I can't really make out much of the other photos.

You do know that it takes more then 1 month to come out with a product, even if copying a competitor?

When an argument is meant to state that one competitor released their product first, yet is blatantly wrong, it will be pointed out. That image, is not truthful, but has been assumed to be. Therefore, I simply showed how obviously inaccurate it is.

Timeframes aside, it said one product came out first, when it didn't.

You missed a big one, Baghi. The tablet and rounded corners were invented by Knight-Ridder back in 1994 with their product "The Tablet". While it was never released to the public, it was designed, built, and patented.

See, now that is a valid argument. That being said, "The Tablet" while similar in looks only appears to have one real function, the news. The iPad takes on more similarities in usage to the Knowledge Navigator from 1987, though looks significantly different.

You should read up on The Tablet. Back in 1992, Knight-Ridder had the idea for the iPad.

The voiceover promises: 'Tablets will be a whole new class of computer.

'They will weigh under 2lbs; they will be totally portable; they will have a clarity of screen display comparable to ink on paper; they will be able to blend text, video, audio and graphics all together; and they will be a part of our daily lives about the turn of the century.'

That doesn't mean that they invented them or came up with the idea. Heck, if you watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, you'll see them using futuristic tablets. rolleyes.gif.
