Personally I think it's a good thing when companies build off each other's ideas, like when Apple saw that big Android phones caught on, and they decided to bring that big phone experience to their loyal users. This is not the same. Samsung seems to be designing their phones with the sole purpose of one-upping the iphone. They are losing creativity with this 'I'm better than you because this' behavior. Just look at the 6 edge , is has a 5.7" screen, .2" bigger than the 6 , hmmmm. They even scrapped their durable old designs to say 'aha i have beaten you because this phone is .2mm thinner than yours!' (Ignoring the fact that the phone is no longer water or dust proof and it way more fragile because it's glass). I guess what I'm saying is that samsung is sacrificing it's creativity and unique features in the effort of one-upping the iPhone. It's going to land them in hot water.

I have been a use their of Apple iOS since 2008 but as we all know about Apple and Samsung both copy from each other if you're going to be honest with yourself on manufactures copy from each other and I believe that is a good thing not a bad thing at all as it is less more joy, more options and After all these years I am seriously considering going over to the Samsung phone as soon as my 6 is paid off. Just one man's opinion.

If you look at the companies now, Samsung keeps copying what iPhone gets and always worries about what they do in order to wait until their phone is out in order to be better than them and waste all their budget towards a new device towards ads to express their jealousy. I'm not trying to prove you wrong but from the effort they think they put in their devices are nowadays resembling the iPhone itself. It's like stealing features wasn't enough then they come out with a phone built and look like one then the name. I dare them to make an OS to ripoff iOS compared to the first android.

I think you should change your website description "News and tutorials to help you understand your Mac and other Apple Products"
iThink - August 13, 2015 at 4:29pm
Yeah, cause who cares about the competition and competing technology. Let's just pretend it doesn't exist.

They mention these because it involves what Apple did, like windows in the car, or an ad featuring an app,e product.
