It's been proven, financially, that the halo effect the iPhone brings to Apple's other products is real.  Get more consumers, those that have less to spend than traditional market consumers, to buy into the Apple eco-system and chances increase greatly that those consumers will then spend more on other Apple products.  The issue Apple grapples with is the fact that the consumer experience needs to be top-notch regardless of whether it's with the cheapest/oldest of...
Yes - but your example has two huge differences.  1. Apple stores are always filled with people (from my own experiences at least) and 2. The people shopping Apple stores want, and buy, the products they sell.   Microsoft stores may have customers who want their product (I'm guessing because I've never been to one to see whether people are buying things there), but they're certainly not filled to capacity as it seems Apple stores are (which I'm gleaning this information...
So 845032, do you give Apple credit for anything?  Or are they just copying someone else on everything they do?   And what reason do you have for defending Samsung - or are you just purposely doing what you're doing on an Apple-based and Apple biased website?   Nevermind.  I'm simply feeding the troll and I know that does no one any good.  Maybe I'll go over to www.samsunginsider.com, or is it www.sammyinsider.com or maybe I should jump over to www.samrumors.com...
Not as a knock or to stereotype, but copying / borrowing ideas, products, etc is a common and accepted practice in the eyes of many Asians.  Of course the same thing could be said of Europeans, North Americans, and others.  If we look, whether it's obvious or not, we will see examples of copying in just about every market, every product.   Creating and executing on unique ideas, be they smart phones or store layouts, is not as easy as one would make it out to be....
It's ok.  I know how tough it can be to create a new logo and there will always be those that don't like whatever gets chosen.  It's the nature of design.
Not exactly related to the hearing aid issue, but I'm really surprised Apple hasn't gone after the active noise suppression headset business yet.  If the phones are already using their own active noise reduction circuitry for phone calls, why haven't they pushed the ability out to listening to music or movies?
Forecast - Apple sales of new iPhone will exceed expectations for some and be below expectations for others - given the fact that financial pundits/analysts spout-off about Apple in order to manage their piece of the company.   My guess is that Apple will sell lots of iPhones, lots of the purported iPad mini, lots of Apple television sets.  They'll keep selling lots of iPad 3's and their stock price will keep going up.  The fact that they're paying dividends will...
Seems to be Samsung attorneys are using a classic form of negotiation - when things aren't going your way, deflect attacks by changiing the subject.  I have a feeling the judge isn't going to like this very much as I'm not seeing how they can relate this back to the case at hand.
iPad mini seems to be a natural outgrowth for an iOS device.  Just like the iPod was offered in a variety of sizes and styles, it would make perfect sense to do the same thing with iOS devices - iPod touch, iPhone, iPad mini, iPad.   I know this isn't what the conversation is about, but Apple has such a tight consumer base, compared to any Android offering, that there is a very good chance that Apple can simply take the majority share of market in the iPad market,...
Wait, I'm not so sure you're talking value adding anything in your points.  Amoled vs lcd - it's different sides of the same coin.  They're both screens.  Is this what the lawsuit is about? Size is not a value either, given it's purely subjective.  I'm 6' 3", does that make me better than you are at 5' 11"?  Is this what the lawsuit is about?   User replaceable batteries?  And what pray tell value does that bring?  Sounds to me more like an excuse for not making the...
