Samsung is copying the Apple Mac Guy vs PC Guy commercials.
But they didn't quite copy it correctly, and instead of attacking the PC, they are attacking the people. I guess that nuance was lost in translation. Too funny.
Very tight tolerances with solid aluminium connector and frame. It's not going to be cheap plastic. I'm actually stoked to see this new connector -- yeah, it'll cost a little to buy new cables/adapters, but it looks like a nicer experience for the next ten years -- kind of wish it would be a mag safe, but I guess the physical connection has saved my phone from dropping a couple of times.
This is actually a pretty cool story. I'm sure Chinese factory worker wages are horrible compared to US wages, but their cost of living is less. Apple is fighting a good fight.
It's going to be an interesting century as Chinese and Indian labor comes online, which will create a labor glut and makes it uneconomical for expensive labor countries to make anything. I can't wait for the day when all labor costs and wages around the world are comparable -- I probably...

LOL! I sure hope Samsung tries to beat-up Apple with LTE FRAND licenses. It'll be nice to see: 1. Anti-Trust investigations against Samsung 2. Korean companies being politely asked to leave all standards bodies.

I did not appreciate it -- and thought to myself that it felt like the guy was on commission. I do not want to deal with commissioned/quota'd sales people when I visit an Apple store.
