 Even though I agree with the basic notion that 'healthy competition is a good thing' you took it into pretty faulty territory. The history of Apple all by itself proves you wrong in that regard. They are not, nor have they ever been "threat driven" in their product development.

Your Apple history is very weak.

During most of Apple's history they have been fighting the major platforms for market share.

Only with their iDevices have Apple lead significantly in Sales and profits.

Had seen and tried an HTC One and loved it. What really separates Samsung from other Android OEM is their huge marketing budget and big guts to gamble on taking a free ride on Apple's hype by making their phones look like an iPhone specially on places where they know they can get away with (during early samsung android devices) to get the attention of the market. I hope HTC and Nokia would produce more great products to have more choices for the consumers.

On the one hand, this makes sense. On the other hand, I'd say Apple can innovate without any competition. The competition itself, not so much.

Oh, welcome to the forum.

Total nonsense.

Apple has built a culture of innovation. They strive to improve products even when there's no real external competition. To a large extent, they're competing against themselves. They want people to replace their phones as quickly as possible, so they want each generation to be better than the previous generation.

That's a lie Mr CEO.
No same person in this world would want to own a phone twice the size of his palm.

It's a sham son. I find it amazing that the courts would even entertain the argument that Apple copied anything from Samsung.

Samsung and everybody else - Our sales are smooth. Our sales are fine. Trust us. We sold a shit load of devices, but there is nothing suspicious at all about us refusing to reveal any numbers. Scouts honor! I swear on my dead mother! And by the way, we are also proud to announce that 17 Billion Android devices have now been activated, and no, we are not going to provide any proof for that either.

I wouldn't expect them to offer much real guidance outside of quarterly earnings reports anyway.

Hello Mr. Troll. The courts never suggested Apple copied anything. Samsung never even made such a claim.

Apart from trials involving Samsung FRAND patents.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

That is just a licensing issue between two companies. Samsung never used the copying PR. They merely claimed Apple was using technology that was obviously required but unlicensed.
