A big pile of Google bullshit

A top Android executive testified on Friday that Google did not look to copy the iPhone when it designed Android.

“We like to have our own identity,” Android engineering VP Hiroshi Lockheimer said, testifying in an Apple-Samsung lawsuit currently before a jury in San Jose, Calif.

So before the iPhone, Android looked like the BlackBerry. After the iPhone, Android looked like iOS. Total fucking accident.

    “Google did not look to copy the iPhone when it designed Android.”

    A completely true statement. It was when they realized how badly Android sucked compared to iOS that they started copying it when they re -designed Android.

    or .. “We would liked to have our own identity, but in lack of, we ripped one off.”

    Sure, the problem is that there identity is to plagiarize, copy infringe, and rip off ip. That is what all this boils down to.

    initially Android was a Blackberry rip-off, but when the iPhone came out, they trashed it and imitated iOS. And let’s briefly mention the Linux and JVM underpinnings..there is not much originality in Android, neither in look and Feel nor in technical implemenation.
