 Of for the love of ... Ah, well.  These threads are always good for one thing: Helping me expand my ignore list.
 By whom?  Samsung's marketing budget is between $10B and $15B annually.  Do you know how many people own Samsung products including phones? People, in general, rarely switch up brands unless they have a great reason.  And away from tech site message boards, most people wouldn't even notice the difference between Tizen and Android.  If they can play a game, make a call, download some music, watch "Frozen" -- they're fine. Trust me: Aside from geeks, your average person is...
