I did an in place upgrade as well but I may end up doing a full wipe and install later on to see if it does anything.
I am curious if the contracts with Samsung don't have a minimum quantity to be ordered on them.  If not that seems odd since Apple is simply attacking a supplier's who is a subsidiary of another company they are suing.  Yes I get it Apple is suing Samsung so why shouldn't they, other than breaching terms of a contract, which no one here has read I'm sure.  I am just speculating.
Apple has stated on the record that they do not use market research, which has now been proven to be untrue (a lie).  They do use market research and now it has been brought out and will be used against them.    Pretty simple, Apple seems to low ball their projections and then crush the street with their overly glowing numbers.  If this were to show that in fact they are manipulating their companies value it could be embarrassing for them and a potential point of...
The question has to be asked, how did Samsung take sales away from Apple?  Clearly their tablet sales didn't impact Apple, their iPhone sales weren't affected since they continue to grow and grow year over year.  People who buy a Samsung Android phone do so because that is what they want, they didn't go in and say wow that Samsung phone is running iOS since everyone knows if it doesn't have an Apple logo it's not Apple.
I will just add Google Maps and toss the iOS maps app into my "Maps" folder along the other GPS apps I keep on my iDevices.  Bottom line is I use what works best and IF the native app does great, but I don't see it happening.  Now if Apple blocks all 3rd party developers from using any other mapping app within their apps other than iOS maps Google could very well sue Apple over it.  I know its Apples OS and they can do what they want, but they can't if they are creating...
Once again Apple is copying another companies products.  Did Microsoft unveil a dual screen tablet not too long ago?  Sure this is a cover, but it still follows the same concept of two screens to use in concert and transfer data between screens.  That is what MS product did.  Just saying Apple takes inspiration and doesn't get sued, but others take inspiration from Apple and they get sued.
Spoiler alerts on Suits, I'm a few episodes behind so I had to skip those posts.     Re: the current case, well Judge Koh is certainly doing her best to allow both sides to have an automatic appeal, though I do see more opportunity for Samsung (if they were to lose).  By not allowing the F700 and other pre-iPhone 2006 design ideas into evidence but allowing Apple to make use of them is creating an unfair advantage for Apple.  It will certainly be grounds for...
The issue with tax breaks for any company especially Apple has more to do with their clear avoidance in paying corporate income tax and holding their cash assets offshore, using the Double Irish Dutch maneuver and routing their taxes through a NV subsidiary to avoid paying CA taxes.  So yeah I have an issue with Apple getting $89 million tax break when they should not even need it to begin with.  But please que the Apple apologists anyways.
Actually it has already been shown that a lot of companies were going in that direction before the iPhone arrived.  Say what you will but design is not the biggest impact the iPhone had. Exclusivity was one (Verizon should have wised up, they could have added millions upon millions of additional subscribers), iPhone also changed how software updates were done, approved and delivered.  App store, not so much since Jobs didn't want an App Store until users complained about...
So where does the money go from all of these generous fines anyways?  Someone's slush fund, thin air?  Just curious.  I also have to ask $22.5 million when Verizon gets fined $1.25 million for intentionally blocking 3rd party apps and restricting access to apps and removing 3rd party apps (by demand) when it stated in the C Block 700Mhz spectrum auction that they couldn't.  Seems to me the fine should have been much higher for both.  Of course iOS needs more security...
