Well, are they wrong?

Maybe he means that they're Butlerian Jihadists.

They hit the bullseye and Apple's dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.

Samsung is just upset that Google and Apple have called a ceasefire in their smartphone patent lawsuits.
 
2014-05-20 06:23:33 PM  
It looks like a Samsung lawyer said those things to an Apple lawyer, a bit of a misleading headline.
 
2014-05-20 06:28:04 PM  
I'm sure both sets of lawyers are crying into their massive piles of money.

Apple is Muslim now?  Why?  Is Apple working to make it legal for Muslim men to marry 9 year old girls or sentencing an woman, who is eight months pregnant, to 100 lashes and death for marrying a Christian?

I imagine the morals of most people at Apple are better than that.

Apple keeps winning lawsuit after lawsuit, the Samsung team is getting delirious from the beating.

Herr Flick's Revenge: Apple keeps winning lawsuit after lawsuit, the Samsung team is getting delirious from the beating.


I think it's a staged marketing ploy for both parties - nothing they care about is at stake in the actual lawsuits, as TFA pointed out. I think they have both found that they can whip up their idiot fanbois and create marketing buzz with this nonsense - it smells about as real a professional wrestling to me.
And you can bet  the rhetoric is only going to get more colorful as matters proceed.

If iOS7's ugly, half-a$$ed design is any indicator, Apple has already failed.

In this scenario are Apple Democrats.  Basically the same as Republicans and just as guilty of the shiat they accuse others of?  Seems about right.

Crying about the failure in Vietnam is technically something a Liberal would do.

Too bad Steve Jobs isn't alive to fire an epic shiatstorm back at Samsung. Would have been fun to watch.

Yes, at least 53%.

Not necessarily deservedly though. Apple has the home turf advantage and some of the things they have contested are ridiculous - round corners for example. It would be no more outrageous for BMW to sue Ford for using a round steering wheel.

Also, Apple isn't exactly squeaky clean when it comes to capitalizing on other people's ideas.

It seems that ever since Apple lost their assholish yet visionary leader they stopped innovating in favour of litigating.  We've all seen what happens to companies that stop innovating - the entire US (and UK) auto and consumer electronics industries for example. In those cases they stopped innovating in favour of marketing but the end result will be same for Apple.

It wasn't a just a failure it was a tragedy that ruined countless lives on both sides. All for nothing. The shoot first ask questions never types didn't even learn anything from it - they just ignored warnings and sent young men and women to kill and be killed, once again leading to a long drawn out fiasco:

Odd. Injunction in Netherlands against Samsung today.
The Dutch are certainly not American.

You need to do some business with South Koreans.

Actually they sound more like Harry Reid raving about the nexus of evil that is the Koch brothers.

Jihad and Vietnam metaphor? Sounds like someone's stuck between a rock and the horns of a dilemma.

Real men never cry about their failures - they just repeat them - over, and over, and over.

To be fair, many Apple fans can be as annoying as people who fly planes into buildings.

Making the above statement is technically something an idiot would do.

Samsung has been behaving stupidly, for sure. Just admit that you plagiarized Apple already, it is so blatantly obvious for several aspects of both phones.

While I like my Galaxy S4's functionality better than iPhone (they did a few things better than Apple), part of me just wants to throw my phone at this moron that represents Samsung and be done with it.

If there had never been any prejudice, Apple wouldn't exist, because Steve Jobs' mother's father would have been supportive of his daughter's relationship with an Arab, and they would have kept the baby instead of putting him up for adoption.

Just laying at the feet the emotion of who it belongs to... I'm not saying they shouldn't be crying about it.   Just saying that Conservatives aren't gonna be publically second guessing themselves.   The criticism will come from the opposing party.

All those hippy protesters back then, i highly doubt were Nixon supporters, would you agree?

Is it Apple that will fail - or Samsung?  (Either way...boo freaking hoo...)
