By all means argue that the Samsung Galaxy S ended up too close to the iPhone 3G for comfort, but please don't do it on the basis of discredited information, or we all end up going round in circles.

The document I saw was a powerpoint presentation comparing different elements of the UI. There were pages with Samsung and Apple icons side-by-side, with commentary along the lines of "Apple's icons look more polished because of the false reflections" and things of that nature, with an accompanying recommendation to hew more closely to their design cues.

Are we talking about the same thing?

EDIT: link to the document I am talking about.

There are 130 pages of blatant recommendations to copy almost every UI element of iOS. I don't see this being debunked in the Groklaw page you linked to.
