When they’re not extracting billions from their bank account to pay back Apple for all the damage inflicted by copying its line of iDevices, Samsung enjoys copying other Apple stuff too. Like the OS X Dock.
In what can be regarded as a taunt, or a really stupid move (we’d rule in favor of the latter, considering this thing has been in development for a while now), Samsung is showing off the S-Launcher that will be included in all the Windows 8 computers they plan to sell.
Gizmodo higlights a description
of the S-Launcher, which reads, “And of course, the S Launcher is also a launcher. Simply drag apps or files to it for easy access, tossing them off when you don't want them anymore.”
The OS X Dock is patented and owned by Apple. Among the inventors, Steve Jobs is mentioned. If anyone had any doubts that Samsung wasn’t innovating, we suggest they put them aside until the next product refresh.
Then again, we shouldn’t be so harsh. Maybe they haven’t seen a Mac for the past 10 years.
