apple great desing
« on: September 15, 2012, 02:43:26 AM »
Sorry this is not amiga related or computer related... but at this ages of apple saying that others copied their products, apple show a ipod with dessing too similar to a Nokia Lumia and no one will say that apple copy, just because they are apple, so sad.

They do look the same, maybe Nokia can sue Apple now?

That's why design patents should not be granted, just look at the flat screen TVs, they ALL look the same.

Few years back I saw 2005 KIA Sorento SUV, then one day I saw exactly same car with Mercedes logo and it was the M Class. Both look exactly the same.

First of all i am going to state i am anti Apple and pro Samsung. In fact seeing my Blackberry is about to giveup on me i am thinking about getting the new Galaxy s3 next week. Maybe.

But i am going to defend Apple in that Samsung did copy Apple and are right to take action against them. The green phone icon through to the pinching for zoom in/out is out right theft. Samsung deserve to be sued. They should be innovative and do something original.

You forgot to do your homework and see who Nokia nicked the design from in the first place.

Yeah, while the iPhone is COMPLETELY ORIGINAL and made up out of the blue by designers who were raised in a closed-off environment not to get any impressions from the world around them.

"IFhone Cincooooo"

"Bullsh**! It's the same phone as before"

"Not true,it's got a new power cord"

"We switched the dock up arbitrarily, so I hope you like buyin' new accessories"

"Plus the screen's two millimiters taller, that's gotta be worth at least 400 dollars!"

"I have a turtleneck for you!"

:D

Anyone that took 5 minutes to read the Apple vs. Samsung case file will tell you outright that Samsung bold faced ripped Apple off with their first Android phones.  They were dead knockoffs, admittedly so by upper management at Samsung.  Things have changed drastically since those days, and Samsung are now building very nice, distinct phones.  I am curious if anything will come from the LTE patents that Samsung holds in regards to Apple in the near future, though.  All in all, about all these lawsuits do is stifle innovation and piss the consumers off, it's essentially mutually assured destruction.

That being said, I switched to a Galaxy S3 from my iPhone 2 months ago and I really like the thing.  My only gripe is the crapware on it I can't get rid of - I really prefer the vanilla Android experience, and the third party ROM's for the S3 to get a vanilla ICS install aren't quite up to snuff yet.

I still do prefer the Apple marketplace, though.  I dislike using credit cards for app purchases, and Google Play store gift cards are not available in my country yet, where as iTunes cards can be bought at any gas station/convenience store around.

I am not anti-apple nor am I a fanboi but I do like some apple products. Namely the iPod classic. but I have to agree that its a bit dodgy that apple can botch about people using their designs yet can seem to get away with using a similar design to another company.  But people will buy their products regardless.

I like eggs. Even the famous iPod was an idea nick:
1.  LCD Display MP3 Player
2.  Circular Jog Shuttle controls.
Diamond Rio 1998. Granted not very elegant.

It's ok when apple steals. Just ask xerox. The galaxy s3 is awesome I have one with the mhl adapter, Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, connected to a 42" LCD tv. Great for movies and games. You can pair wii controllers and ps3 controllers although I have not tired that. Android has a great range of reto emulators. The Amiga emu is lacking and needs more development.

I actually have one of these. I bought one when i was 15 i believe. They came with 32MB and upgradable to 64MB for about an extra $250. Dodgy software though.

Glad somebody mentioned that.
Apple designers are SO original.
Get off it.
This is the company that sued the Beatles (even though the Beatles logo predated the start of their company).
 
Apple's intent is about market control, not competition or intellectual property rights.
In this regard they should be seriously chastisied.

Apple Corps (The Beatles label) sued Apple Computers, Apple Computers did not sue The Beatles/Apple Corps.  First suit was in 1978.  Apple Corps sued Apple Computers several times over the years, with one or two settlements in there from Apple Computers.

Apple can be chastised and berated for a lot of things, but the statements above simply aren't factual, lol.

Almost everything in my house is Samsung, laptop,TV to microwave, but when it comes to tablets they are rip off merchants and I hope Apple prevails.

I stand quite corrected. Thank you (great use of reference material - btw).
 
As to tablet design (not phones), many elements go back (once again) to PARC designs which could not be relized at the times.
 
Apple strip mines other company's ideas.
