Finally, I managed to find a real Apple invention..... the one button mouse!
No, Unix users! You don't need 3 buttons.
One button is enough

We can go around in circles and have long ass posts debating back and forth, but nobody's opinions are gonna change. So, why waste time?

You know, henners, I have discussed these things with a lot of Apple "fanboys" over the years, and they all return to the argument of how much money Apple is making and how profitable their business is. At least they admit they are fanboys, just as I don't have a problem with being labeled a hater.

One last time: No, it is not just about hardware for me. I believe Android is a better OS than Apple's iOS. And I also believe Windows 7 is a better OS than Mac OS X.
Since I like to upgrade my PC components regularly, I don't understand why Mac doesn't give me that option, for a higher price.
Since I like to play a lot of games on PC, Mac just doesn't make sense, because their library of developers is puny, again, for a higher price.
So, in any way, shape or form, Apple products DO NOT make sense to me, and so their markup will always be ridiculous for me.
If people like to buy them, good for them. Seriously, I don't care anymore.

Anyway, regarding the current lawsuit battle between Apple and Samsung:
Did Apple Really
Take a look at this picture. Take a good look at it. On the right? an iPhone. (I’m not sure which revision, really.They all look the same to me.) On the left? Well that’s a little fellow from Samsung known as the Samsung F700. The image alleges that the phone was announced in 2006 and released in February 2007, but only the latter is fact. The iPhone was announced and released in 2007.
So that begs the question: who’s really stealing from who? (If you didn’t know, Samsung is being sued by Apple for the Galaxy S’ resemblance to the iPhone.) Samsung clearly had something going with this design way before they thought up the Samsung Galaxy S and before we even knew of the iPhone’s existence. And the user interface isn’t looking too much different form iOS, either. (If we’re just talking about grid-based layouts.)
The answer: no one is stealing from anyone. Apple didn’t invent icons, nor did they invent the grid in which they sit. They didn’t invent the rectangle. They didn’t invent the touchscreen. They surely didn’t invent the nice looking button sitting at the bottom. And last, but not least, they didn’t invent phones.
And all of the same applies to Samsung and any other OEM. This image should serve as a good reminder that with innovation comes imitation. A standard is always set and manufacturers will always look to meet or surpass that standard. Apple can’t go around suing everybody because their phone was the first one that looks like it to be successful. Fall back, Apple – you really have no case here. [Thanks, Suriv!]
PS: Feel free to use this as ammunition in your court battles, Samsung – we’re on your side.

The term "Apple fanboy" is so lame.
It just appeals to ridicule.
Either you like something or you don't.
And you can also like something a lot - or don't like something a lot.
What's the big deal?Without sharing there can be no justice,
Without justice there can be no peace,
Without peace there can be no future.

Therefore its perfectly possible that the flash memory whilst supplied by Samsung may actually come from several different suppliers, possibly the same might go for the LCD although the processor is almost certainly Samsung produced only.
If you doubt this to be true Toyota took so damn long to reply to questioning about the sticking accelerator issue because they have several different suppliers manufacturing different pedal modules for the same cars. As long as they all fit in the same space and did the same job Toyota didn't care who made them until they had to trace back a potential fatal error and had to check exactly which company had manufactured the system that 'failed' (they didn't fail it turned out) in each car involved.

I haven't compared an iPhone and a Samsung back to back for sound quality and I really couldn't care less either, however has it crossed your mind that an iPhone might be set up to have a different sound than the Samsung? If Pino is a classical and jazz man he may prefer a warmer setup. If he's more of a rock and dance man he'd probably go for a more upfront setup. Perhaps he compared several phones and preferred the iPhone setup to that of its alternatives? Maybe the iPhone plays Arcam to Samsung's Marantz?
BTW I had to laugh at the line about knowing about sound quality because you've had different soundcards, classic. Computers (Apple or PC) are utter trash when it comes to sound quality, only one better than phones.

Bottom line is, discrete audio chips and sound cards provide better audio quality compared to onboard sound and that's a fact.
