Jony Ive: Apple nearly gave up on touch with the first iPhone
Apple's senior vice president of design Jony Ive did not mince words about the competition at today's Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit. When he sees designs from Apple in the products of other companies he isn't very flattered.
The official Twitter account for Vanity Fair tweeted some choice quotes from Jony Ive. Here are some of our favorites:

Try and do better then that, or can't you?
Day 1 for Android was essentially the end of 2008 with the release of Android / G1 on T-Mobile. I can't even remember the names of all of those old products. I did find one of them, Lockinfo, that I can trace back to 2009, but there were others. The fact that Apple even hired the author of one of them should make it clear that they didn't just take it from Google though. Google didn't even apply for their patent until after there were other competitors in the market.
After all both are screens with text on.
Not to offend but as stated above they ALL, (that means it includes Apple), copy from each other.
If you can’t see that part alone then there is no help for you.
Stick to hardware.
Fonbwa! BTW, do you remember the Swiss clock face they copied?
Gee, why don't we go back to the sun dial. Because the swiss I am sure invented that. You are just the type that has no point that he wants to but can't make.
If samsung didn't copy Apple then the S4 wouldn't have a fingerprint scanner. Plus a load more So in both cases, copying has given iPhone and S4 owners a better product! Sent from the iMore App
