    Well that didn't take long! Samsung's marketing department has already gone into over-drive to attack the "superiority" of the iPhone 5. They came up with a pretty "snarky" new ad comparing the new iPhone 5 to the already released Galaxy S III. The ad basically just points out the laundry list of differences in which the three month old SGS3 either equals or exceeds the "brand new" iPhone 5. They cleverly poke fun at Apple's own "Genius-Bar" advertising by simply stating, "It doesn't take a genius." The implication is that it becomes obvious which product is better if you simply compare the two side-by-side.

    Flame war between Apple and Samsung..

    If the courts are too blind to make a decent ruling... then let's resort to teenage tactics... after all, that's part of our target demographic..

    But apple will sue of this too.

    Its the equivalent of saying, mom!!!!! He's touching me!!!! :icon_censored:

    I love it! This allows people who are clueless about tech, but capable of comparing higher numbers, to see why the new iphone isn't the best.

    Exactly. Anyone who upgrades and has all these home docks and car/stereo docks will have to buy new, well, everything.

    The adapter raises the height of the phone so far out of the bases of most of those docks that the phone itself will be totally supported by only the thin portion of the adapter that is inserted into the phone base. I can see it now, a slightly misdirected hand reaching for the phone...snap!~ No more connector, and the portion that broke off is stuck inside the phone! Try to charge that bad boy now! :blink:

    Exactly. Apple does not make good business decisions anymore.

    IMO, having to buy new car docks, adapters, ihomes, etc is not a big deal. It is no different thaandroid user upgrading their phone. How many bionic car docks work for the s3? The point is, the only thing most android users haven't had to upgrade with a new phone is the wall and car charger. It's a moot point.
