I think Samsung is swift it will be a good move only think is don't change the Apple quality of and durability
Barie boy, 17 Jul 2014I dont understand why big company like apple is keep licking samsung feet... when they can pro... moreYour ignorance is evident for all to read not only in the phrase "licking Samsung feet" but the non sequitur comparison if chip manufacturing and sapphire coating
I'm sure these are interchangeable.
Did you read AND UNDERSTAND the article
Fyi Sam S. Ung is a relatively small start up company that makes a variety of products
The most important is Microwave, Vacuum Cleaners washing machines, Fridges also mobile phones and chip
Apples current contract ends this year and Apple have already signed a contract with TSMC
Samsung despite my list above is a major chip manufacturer.
Apple have sued Samsung and in signing with TSMC wanted to reduce its reliance on Samsung
The Qualcomm & Apple (especially Apple) are looking at 2015 onwards as the chips used are getting smaller from 22nm to 14.
Samsung will be a LEADER in 14nm chips hence Apples return
My 2 cents is that given the court cases brought by Apple they cannot be considered a business partner and Samsung should rely on other business rather than accept anything further from Apple
Apple needs Samsung
Samsung does not need Apple nor does it need another law suit
Time after time Apple has chosen legal action over competition.
Some parts of the recent victory are NOT Samsung but Google operating system Android, so Google should gave been the defendant.
Given Samsung will be free Samsung should just walk no run away
absolutley stupid of Samsung to jump into this agreement. Apple keep sueing Samsung for different why would do this Samsung your being stupid.

And manufacturing for themselves only night not be cost effective. Profit is important to them so licking some feet is ok
Apple can pay Samsung with the money that it gained from sueing them.
b, 17 Jul 2014Samsung is the Real Power. Apple is just a (in)sect.apple is a fruit. go back to primary school and learn the basics
I dont understand why big company like apple is keep licking samsung feet... when they can produce sapphire glass by their own then they should stick to their own production house... apple can get lot suppliers even samsung can get lot consumers... Qualcomm can place huge order.... I think apple wants samsung to reduce the price thats why they show some drama come on we are not kids anymore....Greed big players they want jellybean and apple pie... Thank you

You provide what the market wants, you get the sale. Samsung chips seem to be doing the job.
Samsung phones however, are losing business, because it is not what everyone wants. Rivals are selling better phones.

well high tech is high tech... samsung has the edge so they will get the bussiness...
Apart from when you want a device with innovation and not made of plastic :O
Not surprising. Samsung is the go to company in many aspects of business when you want things done right! Period.
Samsung manufactured the A4, A5, A7, and now the A8 SoC for Apple. Even while working in conjunction with TSMC, Samsung would have been relied upon to produce 30 to 40 percent of the A8 chip anyway.
So, the concerns over TSMC possibly not being able to meet Apple's demand has turned out to be true.
