I was not going to say anything because I am trying to turn over a new leaf. BUT.....

Apple really has no shame. If they still insist that they developed that "iconic" look then what else is there to say?

I am with Apple on this, BOTH Sony & Nokia went back into the past with their Back to the Future apps, used an iPhone 4 but slapped a Sony logo on it & used Apple patents that Nokia now has because they already knew the iPhone 4 was "iconic".

That's plausible right? I mean that’s GOT to be what happened. I believe you Apple this is a conspiracy against you. Apple FTW! lol

Ok, so it's ok to steal ideas as long as they're not popular. Is that it?

Actually, I think you feel it's ok to steal ideas if you're Apple, and only Apple.

I was gonna say the same,f*ck me the iphone looks extremely similar. Funny thing is it took apple several years to actually reach this level of design with the iphone 4.

You need to pull your head out in the sand. Unless you have hundreds of thousand of apple shares.

Apple lawsuit would not bring you a single benefit. Less competition mean more pricey apple product.

Apple recent price reduction in ML, iPad are the result of competition or because apple is feeling charitable.

iFan will believe all the marketing info feed to them by Tim Cook.
