I swear I just notice these things in passing. This time, I was checking out The Verge’s video review of the Motorola’s Droid 3. When they were talking about the camera, some icons that looked very familiar popped up.
I’m sure the degree to which Android cuts and pastes from iOS is several times more egregious than what my corner-of-eye observations yield. This isn’t “great artists steal”, assholes. This is petty theft of an icon. How uninspired must your shartphone OS be that you can’t even design your own icons? It certainly isn’t without precedent, which makes it all the more pathetic.
