I’m not, though. 

 
They have created quite a lot of components and technology that cannot be replaced including standard essential technology.

 

For which they’ve sued others (and lost spectacularly), by the way. But that’s a different argument.

 
I would not go as far as you in calling them a pathetic bunch good for nothing but copying.  

 

All right, then. That’s you.

I am saddened that we cannot build an objective and constructive discussion.

Yes, Korea may not be perfect and have companies that engage in questionable practices.  But why label the whole country as such?  Which country's government is hacking and spying without any repercussions? (USA) Which country had a national unity marketing campaign that was actually a way of laundering money for campaigning with no penalties other than a never ending lawsuit? (Canada)  Which country had financial institutions play with people's credit bringing a financial crises still affecting many to this date with their CEO's still free and in some instances getting bonuses? (USA)

 

So if you label a country that you allege is home to an unethical company as a land without law, will you say that countries that are home to war criminals are also a land without law?  You can condemn the company or individual that you think breaks the law but to condemn and label the country borders is politically incorrect (I'm trying to avoid using the "r" word)

You and Samsung seem to think 'premature release' is a good thing. 1smile.gif

North Korea, South Korea are both inhabited by Koreans.

 

Pointing out a series of events which occurred in South Korea can in no way be construed as racist.
