    We should all sue Samsung for not updating their phones and having the nerve to price the Charge at $300. They're causing emotional distress. lol

    Apple is no more of a bully than any other corporation. These lawsuits go on all the time. It's just that Apple tends to be more of a target when the issue of suing comes up to the media.

    You are definitely entitled to that opinion and I respect that. I just don't respect that sheep comments people always make because it's simply not true. Are there people who buy Apple just because it has the little Apple brand logo? Absolutely there is but the very same can be said for Android or any other major brandname.

    Prove it, if you are going to make a statement like that atleast back it up with facts as to why you think that. I am not saying you are right or wrong but why do you think that?

    Right but are there not many other companies Apple could get their screens from? Apple and Samsung are both HUGE companies and neither one of them would miss a beat if they didn't have eachothers business. Anything Apple gets from Samsung they could get from a multitude of other companies who I am sure are awaiting such a scenario.

    true they did get their screens from lg a few years back but i think apple needs a huge company to keep up with production i work in a pharmacy and we routinely change manufacturers because they cant keep up

    im still perplexed by the lawsuit but all i want now is some bobs burgers and the galaxy 2 with that super amoled screen

    Maybe Apple is upset cause Samsung doesn't want to sell them Amoled PLUS screens as they are keeping these for their own phones .

    ...this is typically how minor tech patent suits go. Company A sues company B for infringement, company B sues company A for unrelated infringement, judge gives deadline for company A & B to come to an agreement, & nothing changes.

    You know the funny thing is, I will almost guarantee Apple and Samsung will continue doing business as usual with eachother. This is probably just a small hiccup for them because they both stand to make a substantial amount of money off eachother.
