Apple buyg/copy/steel a massive portion of their "innovations/inventions" and then its the greatest thing in the world. They charge anywhere from hundreds to thousands extra for their devices. All the while restricting simple user freedom they shouldnt even have the right to

If apple is illegal c0opy cat scammers and samsung makes more superior more original and innovative and cost effective devices and apple relies on suing everyone over squares and universal search then guess what that means...Samsung and almost all others are better.

I fail to see why one company has to be better. Apple and Samsung are two great companies who make great, best selling products. Why does one have to be better? Apple sues Samsung in one country, Samsung sues Apple in another. Doesn't matter who started it, it will be decided in the courts, by the judges that are more qualified than us. This is unavoidable. Patents and patenting will end in courts. As for people choosing one product or another, there's no global scamming. People have Internet. They do research and buy what THEY ARE LOOKING FOR. Whether its Apple or Samsung. School boards are not dumb. If they choose Apple or Samsung, it's because of a long LIST OF REQUIREMENTS that need to be met. I work with one board. They hired me as a telecom expert. One of the top ten requirements in the list is, security and NATIVE resistance to malware and/or viruses. You tell me what you would recommend if you we're me. None of this will change the facts that both Apple and Samsung are the two major companies that are writing the book in the telecommunications of the next two decades. Bad mouthing and dissing one or the other, will not change the facts.

So do banks all around the world. And that doesn't make them neither less scammers nor less thieves than they actually are. You have a point, but it's rather weak to make a case.

Your courtesy and respectful manners are always appreciated. Thank you for helping build up a reasonable discussion, sir.

Scammers and thieves you say?

No sir, I don't believe this.

Over 300 Apple Retail Stores all over the world. Each and every single one of them doing amazing business.

Customers gladly walking into these stores and happily giving Apple their money.

And that's before the Apple Website Online Store.

And lets not forget the online store for music that Apple have called iTunes. And the Mac and iOS App Store, and the iBook store.

Billions & Billions, sir.

Thank you.

You just listed the devices. So glad to know we are on the same page. Thank you. Yes there are millions of people completely blind to the scam all to happy to fork over and be scammed. Apple even steels and scams millions of dollars from our schools! That is atrocious!

Yes I have seen the Retina display that SAMSUNG makes. And now I believe LG makes it because Samsung wont anymore. Not sure on the full details yet. And as much as I like LG as well they cannot keep up with the quality/quantity that Samsung can and especially for Apple

So yes. Don't you worry. Apple will keep on steeling/scamming/leaching/suing billions and billions and taking away from education

The Billions and Billions comes from having:

The best selling all in one computer in the world
The best selling portable Music player in the world
Among the best selling smartphones in the world
Selling 3 million iPad's in just ONE weekend

You may not love them but there are millions of HAPPY people wanting to give Apple plenty of money.

So don't worry, sir. Apple are doing just fine. Billions & Billions.

And have you seen the new MacBook Pro Retina displays and the new 2012 iMac???

And also if you want to mention that then how about how they are loosing almost every other case? How in the UK they lost for the second time and for the second time had to post on their site that Samsung did not copy them? They even tried to slide on it this time, but got powned by the courts. They even had to compensate Samsung. Or how in both those and the US case they used falsified photoshopped evidence? They had to pay $600,000,000 in China to keep the stolen name Ipad. They just lost a case in Mexico since they stole the name Iphone from Ifone and had to compensate them to. If they are smart in Mexico they will take crapple on globally for their ifone name and not sell it.

Apple has Billions & Billions of money in the bank due to the huge sales of their successful products and having the largest music store in the world.
