  "... When Apple was developing its campaign to promote the first iPhone, it considered – and rejected – advertisements that touted alleged Apple ―firsts with the iPhone. As one Apple employee explained to an overly exuberant Apple marketer, I don‘t know how many things we can come up with that you can legitimately claim we did first. Certainly we have the first successful versions of many features, but that‘s different than launching something to market first. In this...
  No, Sherlock. If they are merely "shipping" and not "selling", there would be no profit at all.  Samsung's balance sheet would look more like LG's (or Sony's for that matter).    Of Samsung Electronics' four main divisions, only semiconductor and mobile divisions are making 10+% profit. 
  Yes, Apple is very much like Nokia.  Apple can make as many iphones as you want, but there is a limit to how Apple can capitalize on Sony and Sharp's design / technical innovation.   Your brain smells fishy. Samsung doesn't sell too many smartphones / laptops with 128+GB Flash or Intel/AMD CPUs.  
I bet Sprint's CEO Hess will be ousted within 6 months..
  Why don't you STFU if you have nothing to contribute?  I happen to live blocks away from Apple SOHO and know much more about the retail store & USPS Apple gutted last year. 
  Apple is in marketing business, not in manufacturing.  Apple can't maintain its fat profit margin with its own development and production. 
  That's in Billion in US dollars, not # of units.  Apple also buys a lot of CPUs from Intel - Samsung's desktop/laptop sales don't amount to much. 
  Technically, you could also get older iPhones for free too..  Furthermore, Apple's subsidy is much greater than most Android phones: $400-$450 for Apple iPhones vs. $320 for Samsung Galaxy phones . I would definitely buy a Galaxy Note if AT&T is willing to subsidize a bit more.
  um..  ok, I'm not a Korean grammar nazi, but your sentence is incomplete. It should have been,    Samsung: 우리는 물건을 복사합니다.
Apple already has Al Gore, former VP of the US, on its board. Steve Jobs was known to have been a close friend of the Clintons.    I don't see why Apple has to spend any money on lobbying when some of his buddies are also powerful political figures in US.
