Why? Because Apple executes implementation of new technology better than Google, Samsung, Microsoft, HP, Dell, Lenovo, or also rans Nokia, BlackBerry, HTC, and Motorola. If the frenemies can bring Apple down a few notches it makes them look better by comparison. There is a problem with that strategy.
Emotions Of The Heart
People have DNA. If corporations are people, then corporations have DNA, too. Maybe that explains why Google and Samsung have worked feverishly to steal Apple’s designs.
What? Steal? Is thievery in a person’s DNA? Some scientists think so, and if so, and if people are corporations, then thievery can be at the heart of a company, too.
For an example, let’s take Google as an example. Prior to the iPhone launch in 2007, Google was Apple’s friend and partner and both benefitted from a long and cozy relationship.
Yes, Google was working on a smartphone for years prior to the iPhone, but it was Apple that set the example for others to follow.
Have you see pictures floating around the inter webs of Google’s Android smartphone before and after the iPhone?
It’s not a pretty picture and it doesn’t paint Google in a good light.
In fact, Google’s Android smartphone looked more like a BlackBerry prior to the iPhone. Only after the iPhone was launched did Google adopt the app icons and touchscreen made famous by Apple.
What did smartphones look like after the iPhone?
They look like iPhones as evidenced by a Samsung Galaxy III (and almost any smartphone on the market today).
Google and Samsung tout their innovations in the marketplace and attempt to belittle Apple’s technological adaptations and obvious history of market disruption. Mac, iPod, iTunes, iPhone, App Store, iPad, music industry, software development, television.
What industry has Google disrupted?
Search engine advertising.
If corporations are people and the Supreme Court seems to think so, then what does that make Google? Android might be a fitting name to describe Google’s most infamous product, but it also describes what is at the heart of the company. Like an android, Google is a synthetic organism, designed to look and act like a technology company, even resembling true purveyors of products loved by human customers, but devoid of feeling, emotion, and creativity; a technology predator which feeds on human information, and steals the designs of others to perpetuate its mechanical existence.
