Even more entertaining is the fact that Apple is so arrogant they fail to realize how stupid they look.

Suing their biggest vendor.

It doesn't get any more stupid than that.

I'm happy that there's a like/dislike system now, so that we can see how negative the reaction is towards Full of Win's comments. :D

Not sure why people think Apple is the bully here. Have you not seen the comparison between the Samsung phone and the iPhone? We even have sales people telling customers the Samsung phone is "like an iPhone"..

"...to ensure our continued innovation..."

Ripping-off other companies' UI's is "innovation" now?

Samsung is such a pathetic company. They make nice TVs but still pathetic.


Right, it's like Apple researched every mobile technology by itslef without infringing anyone's patent. :rolleyes:

Agreed.

That and Apples incredible profit is what makes them look so paranoid, petty, and stupid.

Instead of acting like the world class company they could be, Apple comes across as fools.

I must admit, I'm much happier being seen with my Galaxy S.

When one is seen in this town (New York) with an iPhone they look at you like "oh, you're one of those snobs".

Yet the irony is they're a dime a dozen here.


You are totally awesome, guy. It's not just your phone, it's a message about your whole lifestyle. I too care way more about what a stranger who sees me using a phone might think than I do how it actually works. All these dime a dozen sheep buying iPhones because they're easier to use and more elegant than Android phones are total losers. Don't they know that being seen is the most important feature of a phone? High five, man.

This happens all the time, and usually results in the plaintiff paying less for the stuff they're buying from that vendor.
