Ok apple haters and lovers and everyone in between. Maybe apple stole everything or maybe they are innovation geniuses.. I don't really care. Just look at the pics and check the facts. Windows and Android always have and always will dominate computing.

Why you ask? Money in my opinion. Apple would rival Android and even Windows if they cut their prices drastically so they could attract businesses and a larger part of the consumer market.

There are Linux smartphones?
Like they sell those? Or do people just reprogram existing phones with other OS'

I have no idea. Knowing linux users, they probably walk around with frankenphones that duel boot OSs or something.

And if they actually had a decent, internal programming API where others could make programs without setting themselves on fire.

Well for starters every evidence in a trial must be carefully analysed before submitted. They'd have to question op and find sources for all the claims.

Seriously who gives a ****. They made a phone which is better than the other phones on the market therefore they sell more. You might as well punish bicycle compsnies for ripping off the wheel.

Actually, it isn't objectively better. In a lot of areas, it's objectively worse than most android phones, and costs more. They only sell more because of apple fanboys. A large portion of the price is because of the brand.

I don't care about Apple nor any other cellphone ********. To me it's just another foolish way of stirring trouble and creating "gangs", so to say.

Right, so if I want all that stuff my options are:

1. Buy 6 or so other phones and somehow mash them together with programming and **** so it does all that.
2. Buy an iPhone.

1 sounds more fun to attempt, I must admit.

Plenty of th e phones on the market have the same features as above, and do more, like the galaxy sIII or the Note II.

Note II being far superior to the iphone.
Even with its large screen, and bluetooth, and gps, and wifi ON, my batter lasts me easily all day, even on the enormous screen, with the fast CPU and double capacity RAM.

Few things Iphone does not have?\
NFC. Which is awesome when you get some tags or want to pair two phones with NFC.
Awesome Interface with widgets that perform like mini programs.
Multiple Programs at once, like one app on the upper portion of the screen like emails, and text messaging at the bottom portion.
PiP, i can watch a movie or show while surfing the web....

**** iphones.

Yeah. OK. Just trying to be humourous I guess. I don't actually have an iPhone. They're too expensive for what they are.

The hate for Apple is more of a bandwagon thing, isn't it? I mean, if you think about it, every idea has been stolen at some point at another. But what if, while developing the iPhone, for example, they never knew about the Sony Ericsson sliding feature?

If you learn about the history of the telephone, you would know two people actually invented it at about the same time. The difference is Alexander Graham Bell went to the patent office earlier than Elisha Grey. Maybe for some of the features they didn't know and just thought it was a great idea.

Or maybe they thought all of those products are **** and they are going to make it better. Admit it, after the iPhone came, there was suddenly dozens of comparable smartphones and touchscreens in the market. It changed the game. Remember, it redefined what people think they can do on a phone. They can do things they never thought they could or wanted. But well, the iPhone makes people think, "Wow, that is awesome! I could really find a use for that!" Same with the iPod. Made the CD Walkman obsolete.

Plus, Apple is amazing at marketing. Changed what people think about themselves. Made them think if they have the new Apple product, they are a better person. Maybe the same kind of marketing doesn't work as well today anymore. But back then, wow, people were amazed! Plus, a touchscreen phone! It's easy to use, compared to the Blackberrys and big chunky Nokias at that time.

Of course, all this equals Apple raising their prices because people think of them as better products, so justifying the higher price, plus if people still buys them, why not? They're still a company after all. They are not stupid. We're the stupid ones here. They sought to make money through mass appeal of their products, and right now, everyone hates them for being very successful.

The problem is that they are suing other, rival, companies over "stealing" the features that are listed in here as not even being Apple's to begin with. They actually won the lawsuit in court against Samsung. So they are suing people for stealing ideas and winning even though they weren't really their ideas.

Keep watching the Samsung case, because they haven't technically "won" yet.

In fact the ban on samsung sales has been removed.

I actually celebrated when Steve Jobs died, opened a beer and destroyed my roommates old iPod. I was actually genuinely happy that that ************ died. **** you Steve Jobs!!! I hope you rot in hell for creating the Apple Fags!!!

Alright, I don't really care how you live your life, but let me ask you if that's really true? I mean, hating a person because of the fanboys the product has created? That's like me hating Gabe Newell and be happy if he dies because the TF2 fags get on my nerves. I dunno, it just seems a bit excessive to me to actually celebrate their deaths.

Seriously, I don't care. I don't have an iphone, but why do people vehemently hate apple?

Because they steal ideas then claim that they're their own!

No, the answer is because some people are complaining about them stealing ideas and now everybody on the internet wants to jump on the bandwagon.

Don't like apple? Don't buy their products, that simple.

Yes, it sucks Apple has patents that were given to them by idiots who didn't know their patents were common sense; but legally Apple had their patents before Samsung released their phones. It's not a matter of when the phones were released but when the patents were filed.

Indeed. There isn't shame in copying what works, but going as far as claiming them as yours and suing people over it is just concentrated ass.

what people forget is just because the iphone wasn't released, it can be still made by them. samsung really copied apple design (you know samsung made stuff for apple)

and many stuff was truly their research, which was implemented into their phones later

also seeing you people hate apple for no reason makes me sad... i mean okay, it's an overpriced product, so what? you have to buy it? NO! there are people who buy it? so what, they CAN buy it IF they WANT... it is NOT of your business who buys what and for how much.

yes i own an iPhone 5 too and i also own a Galaxy 3 too... so what?
