    not sure that's how it works. I'm guessing Samsung's own mobile division (now #1 smartphone / feature maker) generates enough demand that it doesn't have to bend over for Apple. Furthermore, all signs indicate that Apple has become more, not less, dependent on Samsung, even with all the legal battles. Apple's new iPad is now 50% Samsung (eg, cpu, memory, display, battery).  
    I guess they could. It's obvious that Apple really needs Samsung..  With Samsung's soaring revenue / profit, I don't think Samsung needs Apple that bad.
    Well, unfortunately, as I've been saying all along, Samsung is the *only* supplier big, technical, reliable enough to meet Apple's need. Apple can't just pick and choose any supplier of their choice or hire a bunch of unskilled workers to increase the output of those components.
This is pretty simple: if Amazon colludes with other book retailers to set the price, yes.  
not sure who's behind Amazon, but we know Al Gore is on Apple's board
Woww.. never expected Al Gore would write a glowing praise of Cook. It's as if they are bbf. I think it's a mistake to judge Cook based on his short tenure.
I think AI posted a couple of similar articles before.. running out materials?
That's soooo typical Apple.. Yes, Apple can't compete with the big boys on performance or engineering. Apple excels in *marketing* consumer friendly goods to techno-phobes and grandma's. (duck)
*google licker*ROLF!! Jesus, what are you? still in 3rd grade?I have no axe to grind - I'm a Apple shareholder (though only 100 shares at the moment) and have owned 3 iPhones (3G, 3GS & 4G) and 3 iBooks in the past - though happily switched to Samsung Galaxy S2 recently. I use Google on daily basis, especially since both my school and work migrated to Google Apps last year, but I don't own any Google share; nor have I ever directly purchased anything produced by Google.
Not sure what your point is. Apple's success is based on marketing, whereas BMW's on their engineering, product performance, etc. It's not just aesthetics that attracts BMW buyers. That perhaps explains why Jobs's NeXT failed to gain any significant market share in the Unix market back in the 90's, and why Apple, to this date, is conspicuously absent in lucrative high end server market, now dominated by HP. Samsung's largest client is Sony, not Apple, but with Sony...
