So, on Friday, I went down to our local hipster area to watch the girls and see what happens at the apple store. First, there was a ridiculous line that lasted all day and night. So silly. It's just a phone ( a good looking one, but still).
I was interested in checking out the new apple map thing they've been talking about. Let me tell you, I had to ask the staff if this was the new apple app or the old google map one. That's how similar they are.
Here's the question: if apple can sue (and win) samsung for copying them, can't google sue apple for making billions in a matter of days using an app that's pretty much exactly the same as theirs?
Now, before people start pointing out what is actually different about the apple app and the google app, let me stop you...that's not my point. i don't care anyway. The point is, ultimately, when an average joe uses the apple app and then uses a google map app on an android phone, most people will not notice much difference.
rectangles, rounded corners, maps...at some point, i feel like we are just being creative for the sake of creativity. it starts getting lame after a while.
