quote: You may not agree, and think, well it's quite possible that both companies would have picked a green icon, with a phone handset rotated at 135-degrees counter-clockwise as the call button. They could have rotated it 30 degrees (or zero), or rotated it clockwise, or used a blue background, or used a complete older phone instead of just the handset. Just what the odds they came up with that exact design independently? And that's just one of the icons, combine that with everything else, and it's just unbelievable.

quote: Unfortunately for Apple,Closed systems lose to Open systems, and Google is keenly aware of this is a fact.
quote: And what's so amusing is that Apple through their success prove this over and over again :)

quote: Smalltalk has no Finder, and no need for one, really. Drag-and- drop file manipulation came from the Mac group, along with many other unique concepts: resources and dual-fork files for storing layout and international information apart from code; definition procedures; drag-and-drop system extension and configuration; types and creators for files; direct manipulation editing of document, disk, and application names; redundant typed data for the clipboard; multiple views of the file system; desk accessories; and control panels, among others. The Lisa group invented some fundamental concepts as well: pull down menus, the imaging and windowing models based on QuickDraw, the clipboard, and cleanly internationalizable software.Smalltalk had a three-button mouse and pop-up menus, in contrast to the Mac's menu bar and one-button mouse. Smalltalk didn't even have self-repairing windows - you had to click in them to get them to repaint, and programs couldn't draw into partially obscured windows. Bill Atkinson did not know this, so he invented regions as the basis of QuickDraw and the Window Manager so that he could quickly draw in covered windows and repaint portions of windows brought to the front. One Macintosh feature identical to a Smalltalk feature is selection-based modeless text editing with cut and paste, which was created by Larry Tesler for his Gypsy editor at PARC. As you may be gathering, the difference between the Xerox system architectures and Macintosh architecture is huge; much bigger than the difference between the Mac and Windows. It's not surprising, since Microsoft saw quite a bit of the Macintosh design (API's,sample code, etc.) during the Mac's development from 1981 to 1984; the intention was to help them write applications for the Mac, and it also gave their system designers a template from which to design Windows. In contrast, the Mac and Lisa designers had to invent their own architectures. Of course, there were some ex- Xerox people in the Lisa and Mac groups, but the design point for these machines was so different that we didn't leverage our knowledge of the Xerox systems as much as some people think.
quote: I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong. I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this.
quote: You also agree that you will not use these products for ... the development, design, manufacture, or production of nuclear, missile, or chemical or biological weapons.
quote: What does packaging have to do with the product itself.
quote: We could go around in circles but let's leave aside the question of whether Android was a copy of iOS or whether Samsung has or has not tried to clone Apple's entire product range, the answer to both questions is clearly yes they did
quote: None of you say that versions of Android looked like it did when it was released (i.e. full size touch screen interface, icons arranged in a grid, all the touch gestures etc) before iOS was demoed in public.
quote: All the available evidence shows quite clearly and indisputably that the Android team changed the entire design of the Android OS UI to look as much like the iOS UI as possible and that that change happened after the iPhone was demoed in public.
quote: Android cloned the iOS. Don't deny - argue that it's OK maybe - but don't deny it, that's just an insult to everyone's intelligence.
quote: A world without Android could easily become a world where the majority of the internet browsing population has no access to Google services. I feel like Google would consider that to be bad for their business strategy...
