[story] You should know better People Are Jerks, Wally [pic] 17 COMMENTS It now occurs to me that more amount of facts will ever sway an Apple user. they are brain washed, they will not accept any truth other then the one Apple feeds them. thsi world is doomed, seriously doomed. people can be made believe that a product that copies everyone is innovative….hope is lost, all hope is lost. Reply Just read an article in the New Scientist magazine. Not sure if I have the correct understanding of it, but it was saying people don’t like to be wrong, and telling them something that conflicts with what they want to believe won’t do much good. Or something like that, lol. Reply I’m here to tell you, people have been brainwashed by ridiculous ideas far longer than Apple has existed. Reply I sense a religious reference here.. Reply Perhaps Braun should sue Apple for copyright infringement… Reply lmao I was just thinking the same Reply pay it in nickels Reply All Braun no Brains? Reply Yeah, I’m one of those Apple people… but I like Braun stuff, too, so I find this hilarious! Reply Yeah, so…kinda not a big deal. Jonathan Ive, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Industrial Design, has long admitted to being hugely inspired by Dieter Rams, a designer for Braun from 1955 until 1995 and their chief of design for 34 years. Ives even wrote the forward to Rams’s book, “As Little As Possible”. Considering that that’s generally well known, I’m not really sure how the design similarities make Apple look silly. Reply It makes them look silly for suing others for doing what they’ve obviously done- borrow liberally from the designs of others. And these are just a few examples of design “borrowing”; it does not even touch on the fact that they have yet to develop a completely new technology or product since the Apple II; all of their tech has been “borrowed” from predescessors (sp?). Reply Copyright infringement would be a concern if the product is capitalizing on the same exact market. Their are 3rd party products in Apple store now, that look similar in design to Apple, but are not in the same market Reply Doesn’t matter. Apple is also suing a grocery store for using the image of an apple in their logo. Reply Cue Apple Corps, LTD. Reply Must be a slow day at the office? Meh article. Reply Look! The calculator app looks like this calculator, and both the iPod and this old radio are small, white rectangles! GASP! Scandalous….. Reply Apple should sue Buarn for retroactive patent theft. They need to make sure they never use thier ideas, they haven’t came up with yet, again! Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
