I don't think this is a good idea of Apple because that means they are just bitter of what's happening in the market. They don't rule no more!!!

True ingenuity comes few and far between; Apple is the perfect example of such ingenuity. Google has simply stolen a great idea and made money off of it! As "the truth will always come out" and "what goes around, comes around", google and their OS will reap the fruits of their dishonest labour!

2nd. if u referring to samnsung fans, why do you call them fandroids?
3rd. if apple is doing so fine, why do you come here to defend it? in terms of basic psychology it shows you are very well hurt, and afraid; in psychoanalytic structure it means you have a rather weak ego, meaning that you may even have an erratic phalic troubled personality, which in turn is usuall on most apple users.
4rd. with all your "shit-chat" you forgot to check that any of your links posted work or not, may i say "typical apple user work"?
lastly.. if you ask for respect yourself, do be respectful towards other people's comments.
there is more to say about your post, but i will just leave it at that, may i quote you again "peace".

It's nice to see some apple users come in and put these fanroids in their place, as these fandroids have attacked in swarms once again. They literally turned GSM Arena, into a childs playground with nonsense, randomly attacking apple products and Nokia products.

Some of you fandroids really think Samsung is doing well. Samsung is doing extremely well. They are literally wiping clean the competition when it comes to android. However, the amount they make, does not compare to apple, in fact, apple is pretty operating at a totally level. Apple is pretty much competing in terms of profit against the likes of Coca cola, and car companies. It's insane.

last sentence

"Apple sold 26.9 million iPhone units and 14 million iPad units in Q4 2012."


apple humiliates android on the biggest shopping day of the year.

one last blow to you,

Samsung is currently also being sued by other companies such as Ericcson and L.G. Samsung needs to start being more creative. Stuff like being able to draw crap on the surface of the screen is not being cool or innovative. They also need to stop taking others ideas and applying it to their devices. They know they will be sued, but they still do it. Samsung deserves to be punished, based on their actions.

Any S3 owners out there? 1 year from the date your phone is released, you guys will no longer be able to update to the newest version of Android. This is based on Googles restrictions.

peace out haters

- apple police.

I'm sick and lied of apple. For me no more apple!

In my opinion apple is one of the most arrogant companies in the world. It's just a matter of time that apple will play no longer an important role in the phone, PC and tablet markets.

Apple steals a clock design (which was very obvious), and now sues someone for a stupid bounce effect? Nokia should sue Apple for that selector design, looks just like the popup window on some old S40 phones. Actually, they should all just stop this suing nonsense and try to make phones people can tell apart, like it was 10 years ago.

I just threw my iphone 3G into garbage. I owned it for quite a long time without using it. I had it just as a matter of 'exhibition'. Sure apple will face the same fate, just like mac falling before windows.

The way is see it. Nobody here (and coreect me if i wrong) has any thing to do with the stock of Apple nor Samsung. As a consumer i relly don't understand why any one here is take a stand for Samsung\Apple and 'support' theme. The only real thing you should support is them both stop the war at court's in the wide world and start to concentrated more about the war at any customer. The price are to high and the quality in nine time out of ten are not reasonable for this price.

bounce back effect is an ultimate effect of scrolling and scrolling is already there since ages so its not an invention. This patent sounds stupid. Why that company which created scrolling for the first time dont sue all the mobile manufacturers for using it in their phones?? that company should do that and should earn handsome damages....
