Proofs in the pudding. Samsung isn't innovating at all. They seem to be doing just fine copying. So I think you are demonstrably wrong.
This is the point.
I may end up looking like an a-hole for offering this challenge because I am not sure, but has Samsung ever brought anything to market in consumer electronics that didn't mimic someone else?
Has there ever been a time when the tech world has been turned on it's ear because of something amazing that Samsung did in house?
I'm not talking about something Google did that ended up on a Samsung product via Android. I'm talking about something that came out of Samsung.
They copied Apple and RIM, they copied those successful in the appliance space, they copy everyone.
It is not good that Samsung has gotten so huge and so powerful. They are no better than some a-hole in Hong Kong selling bootlegs of Lady Gaga CDs.
