in the trial apple vs samsung, apple sued samsung for copying their iDevice design for their (samsung) device, resulting in more people going to samsung instead of apple. In this case, how can the graphics of an app can result in the lost of money? it can only help that such a big company as apple use this design as it popularize it to a larger public resulting in more money for the Swiss Railways.

also comment about this article, could you mention what is this app displayed on the iPad, and with which version of iOS does it run?

The app is iPad Clock app in Apple iOS 6

Please do Sue apple, if only for the lulz.

After Steve Jobs Apple has not got any creative genius. That is why they stole a simple clock design from a Swiss Company. This makes the Apple users inferior and less happy.
