As for any content related rebuttals of this article I didn't read any. It was your reply to Flaneur that first caught my attention. I have, in the past, read your counter-arguments to Dilger and I can't say they have been objective or without personal attacks. Your continued warping of his name is passive-aggresive but it's still an attack.
Note that I've long defending that any salient argument one may have is weakened by the willful distortion of a name. For example, like using Samesung or Samscum. If you et al.
can't see that then so be it but you're hurting your own argument and credibility when you do.
Good point. You all mean so very much to me, and gosh, this must be the single most important place on the Internet, with so many corporate giants spending a presumed several million dollars paying people to post here - yes, I definitely want to get on your good graces. Please let me try again so I can become as favored here as the many who write "Samscum" etc. and are celebrated heroes for it.
For those of you who don't read much from the outside world, the author of this article (under any of the many names he uses) has a bit of a reputation for, shall we say, stretching to try to turn everything he finds into some sort of Apple vs The World battle.
In today's episode he tries to portray Samsung as somehow doing a disservice to Android by doing nothing more outrageous than simply focusing on the features which differentiate their new product from other Android phones.
One could start by wondering how an Android phone vendor's alleged attempt to "distract" from Android could have anything to do with Apple at all, which might begin to warrant giving it space on a site called "AppleInsider" (tip: AndroidInsider.com has openings for guest bloggers).
But even if we just chalk this up to the ever-increasing frenzy of coverage about all-thing-not-Apple here, what really is the author's concern here? Why should he, or anyone else, expect Samsung to spend millions of dollars on a launch event only to play up the elements common to all Android phones?
In short, his article is a form of what some of the regulars here call "concern trolling".
He doesn't care about Google, or Samsung, and none of it has anything to do with Apple.
In fact, it doesn't even make any sense at all.
