Well guys, Samsung is finally catching a break, after so many months of copying Apple and getting accused for it. Actually, if you look at the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 10.1, it does look a bit like the iPad, to be honest. And then comes the lawsuit and then the product ban and then the ban is lifted… But do you know that we’re actually on the wrong side here?

What you see above is a Photo Frame that Samsung showed back at CeBIT 2006 in Germany. This is the same country that originated the ban for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet and then had to lift it, since it didn’t apply to the entire Europe. Well, how about this photo frame, Apple? Is it me or it an iPad copy from the past? Irony aside, one could go out and say that Apple copied Samsung, by using their photo frame from 5 years ago as inspiration…

And I don’t even have to mention those doctored photos from the official file of the lawsuit Apple vs Samsung, making the Galaxy Tab 10.1 look more like the iPad 2. Ridiculous? It certainly is, but that’s the world we live in and things might even worse, with Steve Jobs not so actively involved any more.

    It’s simple, in fact. Apple are feared because Samsung and their partnership allowed them to see things nobody else have seen, trade secrets and patents. Apple underestimated Samsung, thought that they are a small asian company, easily manipulated, but when Samsung grew and got greedy, Apple put a leash on them, or sue, in other words…
    Because the means are dirty, Apple has no proof, nothing, they didn’t invent geometry and rectangle screen, they appeal to corrupt lawyers and judges and in Germany they managed to ban Galaxy Tab. But Germany does not govern the EU, so it’s ridiculous.
    Anyway, Apple is showing that is desperate, with Jobs stepped down, they show weaknesses, like a surrounded prey, because instead of friends, they have a lot of enemies now.

    The photoframe is from 2006, the Apple Community Design registration dated back in 2004.
    You’d better do your homework next time!

    Whaaat? You’ve got to be kidding. So you are such a fanboi that you are going to say that Apple invented the photoframe? Where’s your proof that Apple designed an Ipad in 2004??????

    I don’t understand your point, I am not the author of the article, I’ve said that Apple hasn’t invented the rectangle and photoframe screen, what are you talking about? Do, you, read?
