You really think Sinclair Lewis would have approved of Samsung's thievery?

Don't know about that (did he ever sue anyone for imitating his writing style?) but "Good artists copy, great artists steal" − Steve Jobs.

Perhaps Samsung / Google were just trying to follow his advice

Jeez, you failed to even cite the proper source for that quote. It was not Steve Jobs, it was Picasso, BTW, in case you ever want to mention this in front of friends and not look clueless.

You also failed to grasp what was said in that youtube video. Jobs clearly mentioned that the aim was to surround yourself with the best in music, art and science and from that basis create something better. I know you missed that, but watch it again and listen to his words.

Then go read this and try to grasp the difference between copying and creating.

Job's was not suggesting that stealing was how they operated, he was pointing out that like Picasso, your creative ability lies in what you are familiar with.

In the Apple vs. Samsung case, Samsung simply copied and didn't create. See the difference?

Another respondent to this thread seemed to suggest that Apple's UI is not much different than the rest of the smart phones. That is because they didn't look back to what smart phones looked like when Apple introduced the iPhone. They all copied the iPhone and tried to look like the iPhone. Go back and look at the 2005-2007 smart phone market and you will understand that much of what you see in the market today is an Apple copy with no creative.
