Default You're both copy cats!

Interesting news I saw on BBC, basically South Korean court said Apple and Samsung copied off each other and banned some of their products from sale in South Korea. However, the products from both camps are older models.

BBC News - South Korea rules Apple and Samsung infringed patents

Because it's called being fair, unlike what we've seen from the Californian judge as of late.

That's funny because most of apples products are design rip off's of Braun products from the 60's. Apple barely invents anything new they just copy/ripoff/improve off every one elses designs.

Agreed!
Apple are excellent marketers, and pretty much that's it.
