 Well, didn't realize that Apple invented the share buyback program. /s  At least Apple is consistent in taking credit for stuff they didn't invent. 
  Ever heard of BestBuy's iPhone 4 BOGO?  If Apple makes only premium products,  what's with the iPhone 5C?   No doubt, Apple's innovative marketing is second to none, but Apple is really a second-class tech company.  I have yet to see a original/breakthrough tech from Apple.
  Considering that Samsung's smartphone marketshare was in a single digit in 2011 -- and I'm guessing most smartphone buyers upgrade their phones every 2 years or so -- most Android switches probably came from HTC / Moto other than Samsung.   Yep, ironically, Apple increased the size of iPhone display from 3.5" to 4" to meet the changing needs of smartphone users during this period.
  Apple is effectively a too-big-to-fail and the gov't will do whatever it can do to protect the company.   Wish I had bought it when it was sub-$400.
Why?  I just explained in detail why the author's claim is flawed -- using his own sources.  Who said anything about "stealing"?  Feeling Guilt much? ;)    The author's claim is that "while popular legend says that Apple simply got its Macintosh ideas from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center after seeing the group's advanced technology in 1979, this isn't the case."  But Dilger's primary source, Making the Macintosh: Technology and Culture in Silicon Valley CONTRADICTS...
Well, this is an interesting garbage revisionism:   "While popular legend says that Apple simply got its Macintosh ideas from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center after seeing the group's advanced technology in 1979, this isn't the case."   The author of this write up seems to forget that it was Jeff Raskin who not only brainstormed the project from the very beginning, but also arranged the two visits to PARC.  Jobs was on the second visit -- Raskin brought him...
  Tim Cook also said he hates litigation -- do as I say, not as I do.   Obama just signed into law the Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012, introduced just as Apple vs Samsung trial started in August -- the law, not surprisingly, expands the scope of design patents (easier to patent and litigate) and strongly favors Apple.  Then came the ITC import ban veto.   Obama is nothing more than a corporatist & a fan of economic protectionism and bailout; couldn't care...
  Sure, you do realize that the component division is Samsung their bread and butter -- though Samsung now makes more revenue/profit from mobile.   sounds like Samsung wins either way. 
  excellent point.  I'm pretty sure that all SONY LCD TVs were in fact manufactured by Samsung until very recently.
