Jeez, will people stop responding to obvious trolls? Anyone claiming that the 4S is an utter failure or disaster after the initial massive launch sales is a freaking obvious troll. I don't care if you actually have a real beef with the 4S or Apple. Only an obvious troll would STILL call it a disaster.
If there's any freaking doubt just look at his other flamebait postings.
OMFG people, just adding trolls to the ignore list is annoying enough without multiple reposts via quotes.
linkgx1 may or may not be an obvious troll but his sig and 520 posts since a join date of October 2011 and the questionable bs on this thread earned him a quick addition to my ignore list. This place is still infested by trolling and frankly I ignore pretty damn quick these days. The S/N ratio sucks otherwise. I'm sure that while the mods are pretty quick to slap anantksundaram with an infraction point (for saying shut up? really?), anthropic will escape the ban hammer for months.
And no dude, Samsung doesn't have $343B as TBell pointed out. That's total assets not cash.
For 09 their total assets were $294B with $182B in total liabilities. And that's for the entire Samsung group...including the all the subsidiaries like the ones that make oil rigs. Samsung Electronics is about $124B worth of total assets with about $44B worth of total liabilities.
Apple couldn't actually afford to buy Samsung (Group or Electronics) but it sure would be funny to see an Apple branded oil rig made by Apple Heavy Industries. Or a big assed LNG tanker.
iTanker...coming to an Apple store near you.
Amusingly you can also factually state that Samsung is building Utopia...
