Samung, this is what your letter to your employees should have been:
"We have to let go of the notion that for Samsung to win Apple has to lose. For Samsung to win Samsung has to do a REALLY GOOD JOB". (like Steve would have said)
Learn from the best Samsung. Learn from Steve. A good leader doesn't bring excuses, brings solutions.
If I was your employee, this is the way your memo would have sounded to me:
"Sorry guys, we really tried to fight so that you can keep your jobs. But we are powerless and we couldn't do much."
And after that I would have ask for a job transfer from the assembly line to one of the executive offices or the design offices.
Dear AppleInsider readers, Android users, Windows Metro users and even iOS users, I say we all send Samsung and flood their mailboxes with these two things:
1. examples of DIFFERENT usable user interfaces and DIFFERENT hardware designs for their phones and tablets (if Nokia and Microsoft have done it, it shouldn't be so difficult)
2. our resumes, applying to be designers and executives (I think we would just need our high school diplomas or GEDs)
