looks like another *win* for Samsung
What's the going to accomplish? NYC has one of the highest spending per student in the nation, why do you think pouring good money after bad education system is going to improve the situation?
"Nobody replied" perhaps because the asking price was too high. Then you find that Apple is paying way below the market price for the prime spot. Given Apple's political connection with the Clinton's and other DNC members, it wouldn't be too surprising if it turns out there are some skeleton's in the MTA closet (if there was a favoritism going on). Having worked with former CIOs and other high ranking members of the MTA, I have little or zero confidence or their...
like you have a choice? Samsung #1 customer: Sony #2: Apple, #3: HP, followed by Dell, Verizon, etc, etc.. Unless you are ready to live out in the wild, you can't really escape Samsung's reach.

Their appliance sales (TV) hasn't changed much (less profit). Not sure why you are so concerned about Samsung's stock prices - they've been making mobile devices at least a decade longer than Apple.
