Fridge vs. Apple’s iPad – Banned.

We shared this on Twitter, but thought it was worth posting here as well.  Sums up the Samsung v. Apple situation nicely.

*Side note – Twitter…where did you go?

Cheers Shane!

    Can’t we all just get along?  I have an iPad, and I have a Droid Bionic.  I love them both.

    yea… i don’t know.  The galaxy tab is *so* much like Apple’s design that i can see why the judge ruled that “Apple’s minimalistic design isn’t the only technical solution to make a tablet computer”  I love the Galaxy Tab and it’s a superior implementation of the basic design – that Apple pioneered and Samsung copied.

    Are there similarities between the iPad and other tablets? Yes. Are there similarities between the iPhone and Android phones? Yes. Big deal! There are also similarities between my Sony flat screen TV and my neighbor’s Panasonic flat screen TV, but no one is suing each other. You’d think Apple would have learned its lesss years ago when the Beatles Apple Corp sued Apple Computer for use of the word “apple.” I own and love my Macintosh behavior, but I love my Android phone and Apple’s behavior is despicable.

    All the money Google is spending on patent acquisition could have gone into research and development and hiring engineers and developers. Imagine, 12.5 million bucks for Motorola. Did it help our economy one bit? No wonder China is kicking our butt. Wake up America!

      It’s a sad reminder that we are producing more lawyers than engineers in the US.

      Not that I think the lawsuits are a good thing or anything, but everything where people are doing anything helps the economy.  All the shareholders made a chunk of change off the deal and with my proceeds, I went out and bought a galaxy tab.  Hopefully all those lawyers are spending their dough too!

    (un)Surprisingly, Samsung happens to manufacture fridges too!

    So are we saying that the Galaxy tab is like a fridge?  LOL.  Not a apple fanboy by far, but I can’t blame them alone for going after Samsung when Samsung clearly tried to imitate apple devices, not just the tab, but the phone too.   Why not come up with something clearly better and different?   Surely we are capable of that in the Android camp.   Just my 2 cents.

      only if you double dare me. that comic is funny. do you know what is even funnier? samsung having to postpone the release date for their tablet because courts in multiple countries have forced them to do so due to their blatant patent infringement. i know, i know patents are stupid and samsung didn’t copy but do you know who disagrees with you. the courts. +1 for me.

    ha the funny thing is some of the renders of the new i5(if they turn out to be true) look just like the sgs2 so will be interesting to see how that turns out if they do in fact make the new iphone look similar to the sgs2.

      *pple “squished” their home button, so it looks like the SGSII.

    Except the *pple lawyer would have distorted the the aspect ratio of the fridge and placed app shortcut shaped magnets all over the front in an attempt to make it look even more similar than it actually is.

      True true… I don’t know anyone who would actually set up there home page with nothing but shortcuts… WE HAVE WIDGETS!

        they pulled up the app drawer on the Galaxy tab and compared that to the homescreen on the i*ad since that’s all iOS really is (an app drawer)

          He will be along shortly no doubt haha.. Heyy Guys, I just got a $829.99 iPåd2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

        Stop pretending like that was the only photo of the two in the document.

        There were multiple actual photos of the two.

        • EC8CH

          So we should just overlook that fact that *pple’s lawyers distorted some of the evidence to make their case seem more substantial?  In this case Samsung did not get to review this “evidence” before it was submitted to the court which make this distortion all the more outrageous.
