Fallout LG is the company that usually creates technologies first, they created HD although they do not so commercially claim to it

Man i love the gadget show ;D

Seems Apple stole the idea (and the design) off LG then...

And the iPhone costs under $250 to manufacture for the 4GB, and about $280 for the 8GB.

Ripoff.

I had a look at the date of news entries. iPhone jan 07, LG phone dec 06. Although that doesn't say much as those are the dates they were announced, not the day they were designed.

True, but near the same. If not the same.

That's a very basic design, Fallout... it's like saying all video game controllers with handles rip off of the Playstation controller because it had handles first.

I know, but dont you think it's a bit strange that two seperate companies come out with new products around the same time with near-identical design and concept? The point of the iPhone is it's supposed to be revolutionary, it's never been done before - and funnily enough, LG come up with this same idea of revolutionising phones, a month apart from Apple's announcement.

Apple are completely over-rated. Macs aren't even all that good. I mean, they're awesome little computers, but people hype them up wayyy too much.

Video of that LG phone. Narration is in French, but you can make out a few words and phrases "iMac", "Mac OS", "iPhone", "mp3", "playlist", "iPod"


EDIT: nice little news link here. I almost choked when I saw the price.

The 4GB model will come in at a shade under £600 while the 8GB could be as much as £660. This compares to approximately £255 and £306 in the US.
