Every day brings more condemning evidence against Apple. They should have stopped while they were ahead.

I agree. Its so enjoyable watching all this unfold.

Maybe....just maybe...Apple will just shut the F up and worrying about outselling the previous iPhone. Which also should be brought to the attention of some judges. How is Samsung costing Apple financial damages when each iPhone has outsold the previous one?

And it still sells and will sell.

still sell.

Apple will cause hype and make 4g famous

This post alone says you have some screws loose. The orig Evo, the RAZR and Maxx are all best sellers. Didn't you read where the gs3 sold so many phones? What about g nex phones? The One X series?

All the phones I mentioned are 4g....

Lol basically everything Apple made is designed by Sony.

First Macbook is designed by VAIO design team

iPod Touch and iPhone are based on this

New iPod Nano is baded on Live View

And does Apple make anything else apart from that oversized iPod Touch that was originally inspired by that Walkman above?

No, not everything. Many of their devices are based on Braun's designs.

Apple have never been as innovative as people had thought. Their strengths were in taking something already created and refining it. It also makes them the biggest hypocrites on the planet, crying when someone makes something similar to them.

Hey A-P-P-L-E;
Apple is coming out with a new product, i'm attaching the press release, you should go get it.

Apple announced today that Tim Cook will be selling his own feces to apple cultists beginning September 1st - Apple's new iPoo is expected to easily surpass the iPhone as the company's most popular product. Yes, Apple cultists can already easily create their own iPoo, but feces didnt seem cool until Apple told them it was cool. Remember kids; the only cool feces is Apple's highly individualistic, rebellious iPoo

LOL

APPLE products are produced in china... from the cheapest materials to maximise profits...and then we get the idiot fanboy (which you clearly are...wouldnt be surprised if your wifes name is SIRI) who believes all their lies and happily buys their s**t products ....and so is the circle of life, the idiots stick to apple and the people with reason laugh at the idiots

When folks REALLY dig deep....they will see Apple isnt as innovative as some ppl make them. Many companies are innovative. Apple shouldnt get put on a pedestal vs. other companies.
