You haven't been shopping for a coffee maker lately? Plenty look like each other.
I have my facts straight, and here is some links to prove it.
Plenty of everything looks the same. It's called "The Law of Averageness" or AKA "Hotelling's Law". Learn business before you spout off about it. It's not good for consumers or businesses to make things that are just different for difference sake. Things are done a certain way normally when a certain way is shown to be what most people like, know, and what really works in application.
Err... those coffee makers all look vastly different than each other. And like I said, it's because of design patents.
There's nothing wrong with looking similar, but there is a problem with copying something verbatim, which is exactly what Samsung did with that controller.
You're basically claiming that patents are pointless and companies should be able to copy each other all they want. The reality of it is, you're wrong.
