PostSubject: Now Samsung Is Ripping Off Apple’s OS X Dock For Their Windows 8 Machines    Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:32 am

Samsung just doesn’t get it. They just got brutally dominated in the Apple vs Samsung trial for copying a ton of Apple UI elements, so what do they do? Go out and copy OS X for their Windows 8 machines.

Samsung has a cool new feature for Windows 8 called the “S Launcher” that looks and functions just like the Dock in OS X. They copied it so well, it even has a 3D semi-opaque tray that reflects the icons contained therein.

Describing the functionality of the dock, Yahoo! states you can “simply drag apps or files to it for easy access, tossing them off when you don’t want them anymore. Nothing groundbreaking in that, but it doesn’t hurt, either, and the icons are bigger than in the Windows taskbar.” You know, just like in OS X.

Stealing an idea like the dock is fine. Great companies steal, but they transform the idea into something that is their own. Microsoft’s Start Menu was inspired by the NeXT dock and Apple Menu System, but they made it look and function completely different.

Samsung’s designers have no taste, or ability to come up with an original idea that was inspired by others without just completely ripping it off. So until they fire all of their crappy designers who are content to create carbon copy Apple products and UI elements, Apple and Samsung are probably going to be locked into battle for years to come.
