Seriously, Samsung? Seriously? SAMI?

How bout we give our voice assistants their names ourselves, instead of the companies who make them?

I just hope that Samsung removes that horrible S-Voice from all devices and replaces it with something much better.

Samsung doesn't copy anyone. All new innovations and original.

Pretty sure Samsung has been called Sammy since before Suri was around. Either way, companies are going to compete with each other, and release similar looking or similar named products to compete. Unless it's a direct copy or using the same name, it's going to happen, get over it.

So it's okay for Samsung to copy but Apple gets rediculed when it looks like they copied something? Is that your logic?

When did I say anything about Apple copying anything. I'm saying ALL companies make products that resemble that of their competition or work in a similar manner. That's what I really hate about fanboys, bickering like a bunch of schoolgirls about petty crap. I have no problem with Apple as long as I don't have to deal with iTunes and they're not trying to limit my choices in mobile devices. Beyond that I could give f*#k all what they do. It's funny, just yesterday I was accused of being a Samsung hater, today I'm an Apple hater. Arguing with 5 year olds (or those with the intellectual maturity of them) is not why I come here. It's to have an informative discussion on tech. But the way the this site is going, I'd have more luck learning Chinese from old episodes of Kung Fu. Get this through your head, I AM NOT BLINDLY LOYAL TO ANY OS OR COMPANY, GOT IT? There are things I like about each, and things I don't. If someone not being 100% behind one camp and forsaking all others is something you can't wrap your head around, then I guess we have nothing more to say.

Because Apple acts as if they are not copying that's why they deserve to be ridiculed. And yes their faonboys are also ridiculous.

Sorry, but you may wanto to use the updated story before spewing nonsense.


As for vacuums, at least they patent their own inventions and not the inventions of others.

It's fine that I beat up my kids because my neighbor does the same.

All of todays disrespectful kids need to be beaten into God fearing humans... Yours, your neighbours, the brats down the way, across the street... It's okay to copy if it's for a good cause sometimes. You're right it's fine to beat them!
