Apple = evil
Typical of everyone in the business. HTC, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung ETC also are suing apple and others all of the time. Its just what happens. To make it seem exclusive to apple is ridiculous.

This is a nice picture from New York Times from about a year ago that pretty much sums it up.

It is very many times. I would not say it is now though as they hardly look alike.

Android was a blatant iOS clone (interface wise), and whenever Apple takes a new design direction, their competitors quickly clone the new design (rounded back on the iphone 3, metal band on iphone 4).

I'd be pissed off if I was Apple and I don't blame them for bringing a suit, although I'm sure nothing will come of it.
Most current smart phone hardware is "apple inspired" but the Android OS is not. Even though the iPhone was started being developed before Google acquired Android, Android was still originally developed before apples iOS.

seriously...
Yes samsungs revenue is three times larger then apples. (I do not know the exact fact but its probably close) The fact is though that Samsung Mobile would be very hurt from this. Apple
This washington post article from a couple months tells why.

http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-...13-704284.html

If you can not read that because you are not a member this is an exert

"Apple is set to sign contracts that would see Samsung providing $7.8 billion in parts for Apple's mobile devices this year, making Apple the Korean company's largest customer.The paper also said that Samsung will supply Apple with liquid crystal displays, mobile application processors and NAND flash memory chips used for the U.S. company's iPhones and iPads."

If some one releases a car that looks the exact same as your car of course you would sue them. Is that even a question. The fact is though that the iPhone hardly looks like the Galaxy line.

Yes if he stole your identity. If not no but take a picture and check you aren't related.

IMHO
??? Are you trolling. The cameras on nearly every other smart phone destroy the iPhones. I know this is just personal preference but really stroms??? Those suck. They do not even compare to the iPhone or any Android device.

60 something billion is not enough these days?

I am not quite sure why I did this whole post. I guess I just thought it was silly.<------You so silly

there is a reason as to why the last product from apple that i will ever buy is my iphone 4, it was the one product in the last few years that was a genuine new product unlike the 3gs and the ipad 1 and 2, the problem with apple is that they are so arrogant and expect us to buy their products just because they are cool, they once had good philosophies but not any more

IMHO they do NOT look the same or remotely the same. If you have eyes you can tell the Samsung is not an Iphone lol. So according to Apple, Anything with a large touchscreen and a user operable button at the bottom middle of a device is copying their design? Go troll elsewhere Apple.

Is this factual in any way?

And Apple is just doing what every American does, the right to sue for the most extravagant of reasons.

Samsungs touchwiz is ment to look exactly like the iphone. That is exactly why it was designed that way because apple had the market share, and people wanted that style... if you honestly don't believe that then your anti-fanboyism goes way beyond fanboyism. The touchwiz UI is just marketing... it is to get the attention of Joe Schmoe consumer, and guess what. It worked. Most of us bought the Galaxy series for the specs than installed ADW or Launcher Pro. We are not the majority and I don't understand why many of you act like we are. Apple is sueing because people could get the iphone look without having to having to buy an iPhone causing a lose of sale.

It is standard business. That being said. I don't want them to win. The reason we have such schnazzy designed phones is because the iPhone was sexy, and that look still works.

If you try to say that when the iPhone first released you didn't drool then you are in denile. Nowadays it is just common place... but back then it was fairly original.
I don't usually voice my opinion in these threads much but ^this pretty much sums it up.

Oh, and if anyone is wondering of the final outcome, I'm pretty confident it will go something like this:

Nice try, Apple.

EDIT: BTW, I have a Captivate and I got rid of that ridiculous UI immediately (too funny).

There were 10 million Galaxy S models sold, date Jan 3rd, 2011, I can't find anything newer. I'd imagine the number now is between 15 and 25 million.

Apple doesn't release sales figures beyond the first day sales because the rate at which they sell drops off so sharply after that first week. I'd guess the number of iphone 4 models to be around 10-15 million.

Butttt, it's kind of a loaded stat, because the iPhone4 is basically a weak Galaxy S in a different case

You'd take a poorly cooled, highest fail rate hard drives over a quality PC any day? Even the low end laptops from ASUS, Dell, etc., offer better quality components then apple products.

I remember them suing a website or something for having the "i" in the name they claimed they owned the rights to it lol

All these lawsuits from Apple kind of remind me of those "career floppers", you know, the one's that fall over in department stores and sue? I hear more stories about Apple suing than I do about Apple products...
