About Foldables and …

the uselessness of copycat discussions

Everything has its preceding ideas.

Or do you think that Einstein’s Theory of Relativity was born just in his head?

He himself once said:

The secret of creativity is how to hide your sources.

That’s a statement also valid for technological developments of today and it hits the nail right on the head for all companies developing smartphones. Wether it’s the notch (which is a necessity as long as in-display technologies must be further developed) or foldable phones.

Even if we don’t see any prototypes of foldable phones coming from Cupertino it cannot be excluded that there is already an approach near to perfectness in the isolated R & D department.

Yeah, right. Apple is a copycat.

2017 they copied Wireless Charging in that they used essential results of the groundbreaking publication “A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field” published by Scottish J.C. Maxwell in 1865.

And now they’re on the way to copy HUAWEI’s triple-lens technology which is based on innovative ideas in OPTICS, the branch of physics which involves the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. HUAWEI definitely copied from the first developers of lenses, the Egyptians and Mesopotamians in 700 BC.

It’s strange to see that the manufacturers often do not claim to be THE FIRST who developed a technology but authors of magazines and of course fanboys do. They all don’t know who started the development first and they all don’t understand that you can’t copy a technology simply by buying a competing device and analyzing it.
