    Despite HTC's recent settlement with Apple, Samsung recently issued a statement they have no plans to back down in their legal patent war with the clan from Cupertino. Here's a quote with the details,

    What do you think of this stance? Are you glad to see Samsung stand up against the bully of the tech world, or would you prefer them to work things out and focus on something else?

    I'm backing Sammy. Someone needs to continue to stand up to crapple and not back/bow down.

    Who cares, two Giant corporations in a pissing match, why do people get so personal about this crap, unless you are a shareholder or company employee of either company, then maybe yes, but if that is not the case, then I say, WHO CARES.

    Legal fights cost companies money, and that means funds are being redirected from other parts of the company that could improve products or keep prices down for end users such as ourselves.

    Anyone who uses (or intends to use) any of Samsung's products is essentially a shareholder in the corporation in the end.

    You are way off on all your arguments, do you really think the phone you buy will be cheaper because there us no litigation, lol, and no you are not a share holder because you buy a product from a company, you actually need to purchase $ stock.

    True, but my smartphone has done WAY SO MUCH MORE for me than any sports team. If I had to pick between my smartphone and every sports team, professional, collegiate, and high school put together, there would be no competition. My smartphone wins.

    so you would like a company like apple to continue to patent ridiculous items and use that to stunt other companies innovations? and sue anything and everything that comes close to designing something similar to your product..

    exactly, if someone doesn't stand up to apple innovation will be stagnated unless companies can afford to pay ridiculous royalties to apple just to use something that should be open source.

    This has NOTHING to do with what I said, will it make a difference one way or another with who I favor, for crying out loud, seriously, give it some clear thought here, these BILLION dollar companies all they care about is YOU buying their products "and both are selling tons of product" and making their CEO's and share holders filthy rich, that is the bottom line, everything that happen between these two companies in the court rooms is just table talk, that's all. Samsung and Apple are not going anywhere, and neither are their litigation teams, get used to it.

    I don't get your correlation. No one here is delusional. We all know Samsung and Apple are fighting for profits, we all know they make lots of money and will continue to make lots of money. Few of us care about that, even if we understand that is what the companies themselves care about. What matters is the precedent that is set out of these battles. These are the 2 biggest electronics companies in the world. This particular case not likely to end anything, they both have money to burn in appeals, but the ultimate outcome will have an affect on anyone that uses electronics. I would think that since we are geeky enough to be members of this site, we all care about electronics.
