I'm not even gonna mention maps, since that is a joke all by itself. And if you live outside the US, well, according to Apple's maps your city may not even exist. Not that Apple really gives a shit about anyon3 or anything outside the US anyway.
If anything I think Samsung execs are laughing their heads off at Apple's incompetence.
So please explain why "Samsung execs [who] are laughing their heads off at Apple's incompetence" decided yet again to spend millions of dollars on ad campaigns that mock people who buy *cough* *inferior Apple products*? It defies logic: why haven't they also launched campaigns against people who buy inferior LG phones, or for that matter Sony, Nokia or RIM devices? It seems to me that you would only target Apple specifically if you were scared sh*tless about having been left in the dust by Apple—yet again. Unable to attack the products they resort to an attack on the people who buy those products. Pretty lame and laughable, not to mention ineffective (see my previous post).
In light of Samsung being found guilty of stealing multiple Apple tech and design patents, and now having to award Apple over $ 1,000,000,000 (one billion!) in technology infringement damages I imagine Samsung execs have had any grins they may have had wiped off their faces. A more likely scenario they're seeing who they can steal from next in order to keep their company afloat. I guess at the end of the day Apple doesn't bother to attack Samsung with ads designed to mock their customers because they don't have have to; those Samsung phones people carry around have the exact same effect.
On another note, why would I buy a phone from a company like Samsung that can't even design its own OS? I mean God are they THAT lacking in basic R&D capability that they have to beg something as important as an OS from a third-party? They can't even try to do some coding??? Look man, Apple leapfrogged Samsung's phones in 2007 with their very first model, and that's just the way it's going to be for quite a while. I suggest you do yourself a favor and get with the times. Maybe Samsung can go back to copying radios or something.
