Try creating opposing statements to disprove any of my statements rather than arguing about the lack of "facts". I re-read my statements. It's just as I expected. People who takes things personally should do a mental check.
I'm glad at least we have one person in the Apple camp who disagreed with Jobs and his tendencies to take things personally.
This is about business, afterall, not about life styles. Leave those to the fanboys who just love to debate nonsense online with no progress.
This just proves that Apple's relationship with Samsung was critical (in the words of Cook) to Apple's survival and its business.
Samsung, on the other hand, didnt quite need Apple as...
If the Co-founder of Apple says his opinion about his company's products, should'nt people listen? Why dismiss him for saying what is already evidently true?

Your stuck-up thinking goes counter intuitive to the very essence of capitalism. Apple will be in a dire hurt if they indeed listen to what you have to say. What you are wishing for the company is the very opposite of what an Apple fanboy should be demanding. You are basically appealing for its destruction.
