Answer me this: Is it then OK to make statement 1 but not statement 2?

Because the latter part of statement 1 is not the definition of the term used in in statement 2.

The Online Slang Dictionary

sheeple
  • A combination of sheep with people. Used to describe a group of followers.
  • It refers to the mindless masses that go about their lives like drones and don't question anything they hear from the mass media. They fall in line with every popular trend or theory of the time and worship American celebrity with utter devotion.
Objective means not influenced by personal feelings or opinions, subjective means influenced by personal feelings or opinion. Did you mean to say without subjective analysis?

I mean honestly, if you were designing a phone, and you thought you needed 3 buttons, would you really choose to make them different? You can construct all sorts of plausible arguments to explain this, but in the context that everything else looks so much like the iPhone, it's difficult to come to any other conclusion that it's a blatant copy.
Why would they have to be the same? They serve different functions.

I would guess that because of the importance of Samsung as a supplier they tried to resolve it quietly first, but that is only a guess.

This has been going on for 18 months? The lawyers must be happy.

I completely agree, but I think that holymadness is commenting on the fact that the iphone was used as comparison. If the person who made the presentation would have made slides with hundreds on phones where a handset on green background are used as call logo and the contact list has the head-and-shoulders icon this wouldn't have been an issue.
