After all, who copies technology better than Samsung?” Kate MacKenzie writes for Mac360. “As much as the technorati elite like to think that Google’s Android dominates Apple’s iOS devices, Google isn’t even a major money player in the smartphone and tablet industry. It’s Apple vs. Samsung; the only two truly profitable mobile device manufacturers. Can you guess what Apple has that Samsung has not copied?”

“The Lord knows that Samsung has tried desperately to paint itself and a slew of mobile devices as the new Apple, the innovator and leader of the next great thing.
