Second World War? What are you blabbering about? Everyone else does it? Samsung's been caught THREE times already. What proof do you have anyone else does things like this? ... Go on, We'll wait.

BTW, if you knew much about history you would realize Jobs was quoting Picasso when he said that. And there is a deeper meaning that what fanboys like you are able to comprehend.

very sad. I can't believe Samsung, a company like them resort to this type of tactic. Already not impressed with inflated numbers, false tactics, not surprised with them paying people to slam other competition. Not surprised at all. Karma will get companies like this.

It doesn't matter how squeeky clean your beloved Apple/HTC/Nokia/Motorola/Samsung etc etc appear to be on the surface,it's guaranteed that every single one of them will have been guilty of the exact same thing at some time or another,the only difference here is that they got caught.Look up dirty tricks campaigns by politicians,or propaganda in the second world war and you'll see how the professionals do it and in most cases get away with it.
Oh and of course Steve Jobs now immortal words "Good artists copy,great artists steal".Think about that before you go shooting your mouth off about things you actually know nothing about.

Samsung hasn't even spare HTC's own turf?

I mean Taiwan is relatively a small country and Samsung doesn't need to do a dirty trick just to sell their devices there. We're not talking about China, Russia, India or US here.

Nationalism strikes again.

Taiwan ruling in favor of HTC which is a Taiwanese company.

Just like US ruling in favor of Apple.

From a consumer who has owned both brands my wallet likes competition and Samsung for now.

CUPERTINO?
LOL! you mean those guys who are selling junk phones for profit? come to think of it, is there a major improvement in their mobile in the past years? just imagine if their mobile phones were created by some unknown company out there, i doubt if you would even consider looking at it.
