i for imitate rather than innovate.

iphone = imitated phone
ipod = imitated pod
ipad = imitated pad

In conclusion Apple is good at imitation rather than innovation.

Therefore it doesn't really matter where you get it from, it's gonna be fast and reliable. And Apple won't put a shitty chip in their phone, that's for sure, just as no manufacturer will do this..

what does apple have for them to brag?? they only have original OS. aside from that,what??
Samsung may not have their own Samsung OS (SOS? lol), but all of their parts are original, and that's what makes the phone tick, not the OS.
If the manufacturing companies are able to see that Apple cannot survive without them, that would be a lot of fun! What does Samsung have to lose? a client/competition/fraud? to me, that's all good stuff..
and it's not just Samsung that Apple's been copying. It's everybody else's work put together that they steal, add an "i" to it and claim it as their own.
innovate? that's just a word created so that professionals don't get scrutinized for copying other people's work.
Sony's or Samsung's or any other flagship can kick Apple's arse any given day. You don't need to dish out as much as an apple fanboy does just to be able to whoop their but+

They have all the core technologies such as audio, video, LCD, computer, wireless phone, memory, solid state disk, hard disk, camera, car...etc. Samsung has already overtaken Sony or even Panasonic to become the world largest electronic consumer company.

Apple has made huge mistake to offend Samsung.
Now they have to pay the price! Let's wait and see.

It's not just Apple and Samsung who are at each
other's throats , as HTC is accusing Apple of
infringing two of its patents relating to data
transmission. These patents are critical to 4G LTE
technology, which means that the firm could win
import bans against the latest Apple Ipad and the
incoming Iphone 5.
And with apple iphone5 off the wil be dead this time

That's because Steve Jobs & Co. got no idea how to invent new products. So he & co copy here, copy there and RE-INVENT them.

Samsung is a multi-organ company. It has several divisions, and samsung electronics is one of them.
Yes apple is one of their biggest client. But losing apple will not cripple samsung.

Apple collect good stuffs from other company, round them up in one product, and voila! An innovation!
Put luxury dress on it, and sell them with steep price.

You know, before iphone came, i never heard of patent wars, or fanboys.
We lived in a relatively peacefull digital mobile world.
So who's the bad guy now?

This is a business world. Why buy the cow when u can buy the milk. Investing in chip manufacturing is a waste of time and prolonged the ROI.

In contrary, buying the chips from competitors made them busy and ROI is immediate...

Apple is just a businessman company...leading Steve Job's legacy...

However, they must think of some new techniques or the whole world will abandon them one day for making trouble with other innovative Samsung Products like Galaxy Camera, Galaxy Beam and Galaxy Note 10.1

This is what we geeks want!! APPLE!! Come out with something new or we will kiss your fruit goodbye!!

It's obvious that Google is no longer tolerating these iSue activities and striking back with their new MotoSue dept.
