This is an excellent article about the Apple/Samsung rivalry.
Apple and Samsung: A defining rivalry in a changed mobile market - Yahoo! News
I can totally see now why Apple is so scared of Samsung and have (last week) submitted the unprecedented request to the courts to impose a permanent import injunction on all of Samsung's future products. I can't imagine any court willing to stop the import of future products that may or may not violate patents that incidentally Apple may no longer hold in the future. An interesting tidbit from the article....during Q3 of this year (July through September), Samsung sold double the number of smartphones Apple did (56 million) and analysts expects Samsung to sell 30 million more smartphones that Apple in Q4.
The United States is the land of the free because of the brave.
To all who serve or have served in the U.S. military and to your families, THANK YOU. Your sacrifices are NOT in vain!
May God continue to bless the USA
