Hay anything is made for apple first, Samsung is waiting for copy.

Well said. This Fukjohn guy always sees something android copies and always posts "now apple has something to copy as usual" bull shit. He only understands what he wants to believe as much as Tony-Phony does.
odedo2 - March 11, 2014 at 3:46pm
Sorry, I mean Fukron john is one to believe what he says. Fukjohn is the opposite of him, he is the one who actually understands.

Would people stop bashing each other for what they like? It would make the world a better place. Both Samsung and Apple has their pros and cons like anything else. It all comes down to preference. Companies always copy each other especially in technology and as long as it is not patented, it is ok. Samsung is a great company cause they don't only make consumer electronics, but they are also in the appliance industry and a few others. Apple is great in its own right cause they always improve and innovate something new that has already been out. Apple wasn't the first ones to be in the smartphone and tablet business, but they find a way to improve on and change the whole idea to make people want to buy. That is why people love Apple products.

We didn't say what copying does and we didn't say it was wrong, we just point it out that samskunk is not doing anything but this and that's all they do, only tv's are leading them, they are always a year to late to make whatever apple came with first, but when the hell did apple ever copy?

In terms of iOS, Apple has copied some features from Android and Webos (Palm) and even a little from Microsoft. Features like the drop down notifications from Android, multitasking from Webos, and the flat design from Microsoft. Luckily for Apple, those features weren't ever patented.

Every phone has the drop down feature even if they were released at the same time, unless it looks the same then it's considered copied, their multitask works different in two ways other than two things taking up screens, the the look, how the Fck is that even close to microsofts look? Theirs is just sharp edged one colored giant looking tiles with white icons in the middle, apple icons are slightly bigger with curved edges, neon colored and about the same as the old ones without icons being on squares. Icons are the squares.

Nat - March 9, 2014 at 6:40pm
And fans are under their mind controlling logic, all they care is screen size and treat the rest of the company like they're better. Joke to the max.

Apple is so original, that's how itunes started as a radio, but it was named sound jam, but you weren't probably born yet. Maybe you should have your mothere do a rebirth of your poor being, to see if you will come out a little smarter , you dumb ass.
AssNut, the definition of fcked in the but - March 9, 2014 at 9:31pm
You're original, that's how you stated what you think, you weren't grown up to get it and never will. iTunes Radio is not copied and that's the fcking subject. Go back to school before you shit things up more before carrying this crap on you ass, mister thick cranium, see if you soon get your degree, retarded disabled bitch.

SoundJam MP, developed by Bill Kincaid and released by Casady & Greene in 1999,[5] was renamed iTunes when Apple purchased it in 2000. Jeff Robbin, Kincaid, and Dave Heller moved to Apple as part of the acquisition, where they continue to work today as the software's original developers. They simplified SoundJam's user interface, added the ability to burn CDs, and removed its recording feature and skin (computing) support.[6] On January 9, 2001, iTunes 1.0 was released at Macworld San Francisco
