The CPU in every iPhone/iPad are made by Samsung. What will happen if they decide to stop supplying them?
Can't Apple come forward to make any competition with functionality and user satisfaction against others? What kind of attitude it is? Do they still think that they are best?

I don't have anything against either to be honest but I do know that Apple's policies are a whole lot worse for consumers than Samsung's ever were.
Samsung has already won the market by galaxy series and nokia is nothing now a days.
Source for humorous car analogy:
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2011Let's put this in to perspective. All cars have a fundamental shape of four wheels and a steer... more1. The truth is, if Ford held a patent for 'four wheels and a steering wheel' then yes, Ford could sue everyone else. It's not about who invented it first, its about who owns the rights to it unfortunately, whether we like it or not.
2. I disagree that your Ford example is what Apple is trying to do. Imagine you change the style of cars, and add a joystick instead of a steering wheel. Then you add new cantilever buttons with multiple contacts and fulcrum for the automatic windows. You also decide that whoever buys your car should get it in a white cardbox lol. You then design certain icons for your car's dashboard. You add a touch screen for a navigation system, and decide hmm, this would benefit from touch impressions being fitted to an ellipse fitting.
You then patent all the above, and more, because you want to protect the work that you put into designing all these things.
3. Next thing you know, the Sumsangoo 4000 comes out, and guess what, it has joystick, cantilever button for windows, similar icons on dashboard, the touch screen also maps to an ellipse AAAAAND sold in white cardboard bow.
How do you feel?
4. Conclusion: Is it possible Sumsangoo 4000 was designed entirely independently from your car? Of course, no one knows for sure. After all, the Mololorora came out with a joystick. The SolyEnection came with cantilever buttons.
But don't you think its slightly more suspicious that the Sumsangoo 4000 suddenly shifted its design direction and had so many of the same features your car has? Maybe they are innocent, maybe your suspicions are right.
I don't know about you, but I'd be annoyed in the above scenario. And THAT's why I applied for patent protection. And that's why I'll sue Sumsangoo.
5. That my friend, is hopefully a slightly more accurate example of what Apple is doing with regards to Samsung. Also, what Nokia did to Apple, and what Oracle did to etc, and what etc did to etc.

this is just another stupid law suit twoddle. why dont each company develop there own original ideas. not copy someone elses. then sue then for it.
when it becomes popular. if you ask me. personally. the galaxy s is an amazing phone. but sadly a blatent copy of the iphone 3gs which came out first. so there you have it. samsung suffer from plagurism. on a big scale.

why apple delay the iphone release to September?........well when they saw the new HTC sense they said we will lose so let us copy that style and many more things...so I hope apple will lose

All cars have a fundamental shape of four wheels and a steering wheel. Therefore Ford can take sue everyone else, because their cars also have four wheels and a steering wheel?? That is what I see Apple trying to do! Radio's all have tuning dials or selectors. If one manufacturers looks like another will they take each other to court? Of course not! The command line windows in a Linux GUI is black as it is with Windows. Will Microsoft be telling the world all open source command line windows in a Linux GUI's cannot be black because they did it first. Let's just assume they did for the sake of this discussion. Apple are just trying to stop innovation and anything that might beat them at their own game by sueing everyone. On a personal note, that is why I hope upon hope, they lose and my ultimate desire is that they go bust!!
lol u are so narrow minded....samsung never stole anything from apple it's just that apple want to be the only ones with touch screen phones and high end.......now they don't even have a processor producer bcs the firm making processors for them WERE SAMSUNG...who refused to further make for them.....so i think apple are just a one button company who make expensive products for narrow minded ppl

Idea for the mobile companies hows about you all make one phone btw you all come together and build the ultimate device triple booting OS apple android and WP7 now would that not be something to see.
Hmmmmm... Jessica Alba (from last reply ;P)

Do you know that there are so many lawsuits flying all over the place? Major businesses suing each other is normal, after all, they hold patents, and that's what patents are for, a form of protection for intellectual property rights.
Nokia sued Samsung in 2009 over LCD price fixing. A US group sued Nokia and Samsung over bluetooth. Google is being sued over wire-tapping. Oracle sued Google over Java. Nokia sued Apple over some patents. Even Jessica Alba threatened to sue Playboy over a cover of the magazine. Mmm... Jessica Alba.....
Anyway, you get the point. No need to get excited. The courts decide at the end of the day, otherwise, settle out of court. Zzzzzzzzz boring.
