    Sorry if this is in the wrong section.


    Apple has clearly stolen other ideas, some just with today's release!

    1 - Notification Center

    Clearly an invention of Android. Yet apple OBVIOUSLY stole it.

    2 - Sports scores in Siri

    Google Now was the first to have sports scores. Now Siri can do the same, and the UI is very similar!

    3 - "EarPods"

    Apple's new headphones.

    They say that "They look unlike anything youve ever seen." Well i personally think that they look EXTREMELY similar to Sport Earphones, Developed by Athletes for Athletes, Never Fall Out | Yurbuds.

    4 - OS-deep social networking integration

    With iOS 5, apple added deep Twitter integration. With iOS 6, they added facebook.
    Since the very beginning, Android has had the deep social network integration for ALL social networks.

    5 - Phone app

    The phone app in iOS 6 allows for quick replies, quiet hours, and call blocks. All Android features.

    6 - iCloud tabs

    A clear copy of Google's Chrome browser sync function.

    7 - Camera

    The iOS 6 camera has a panorama function. Also an Android feature.

    8 - Maps App

    It seems as if they took Google maps and made it prettier.


    I don't understand how they have the audacity to sue Samsung over copyright infringement when they have done what they have! Total abuse of the patent system.

    I like this post as it gives at least some factual information on what Apple is doing you can also look at the Lumia phone compared to the new iPod. They totally stole the extended bezel design. It's a complete rip off.

    So Android stole it too? And stole phone app and social integration from Blackberry? Everyone does it. Samsung just did it blatantly.

    So what about (local) Universal Search? From what I understand, it was on the Galaxy 3, and was subsequently removed due to "copyright infringement". This is something I had on my webOS Pre- back in 2010, and essentially (Just Type) on all newer models...HP Veer & Pre3. I assumed if you didn't defend your patent, then it was considered given away.
