Als we het dan toch over copycats hebben.
Choe Sang-Hun voor de New York Times:
But Samsung always had an image problem, a stereotype that it tried to dispel through a patent tussle with Apple, the epitome of American innovation. Although Samsung may be pulling in more cash than ever — 6.7 trillion won, or $5.9 billion, in profit on 47.6 trillion won in sales in the second quarter — it was seen not as an innovator but as an imitator, though a very efficient one, in products that it has eventually dominated.
en uit hetzelfde stuk:
“Copying and clever upgrading are no longer viable,” the daily JoongAng Ilbo, the International Herald Tribune’s publishing partner in South Korea, lectured in an editorial. “Samsung must reinvent itself as a first-mover, despite the huge risks involved in acting as a pioneer, if it hopes to beat the competition.”
Zelfs in Korea hebben ze het gewoon door. Waarom hebben de mensen op Google+ dan zo'n moeite dit te zien?
