    Then let me put it to you this way... I wonder how much money Samsung, Microsoft, and Google would make if they didn't attempt to imitate Apple products which ultimately lose $ for them?

    People were afraid to go in with Apple fans mob waiting for them around the corner. No wonder it shut down.. :)

    We'd be using Blackberry-style phones with physical keyboards and there would be no iPad or tablet computers.
    I would say you are wrong. We all ready know Google were designing an iPhone like phone in parallel to the blackberry style one though with less resources. So a full touch style phone and thus by extension iPad style unit would follow. How they would look and work may be different but we can play what if for every conceivable scenario.

    I don't care for your twisting of history.

    We all know that Google designed Android on Blackberry specs—ie, phones with physical keyboards—and had to do an abrupt 180 as soon as the iPhone came out.

    I'm very glad that I didn't have to suffer the laggy abortion of an OS that was Android, thanks to Steve Jobs and Apple.

    They didn't have to do anything. They quickly saw that the course they were on would lead to failure.

    You can carry on and twist reality to suit your own version of history but as we do know that once Google saw what Apple had done with the iPhone they scrapped there BB type phone and moved all resources to the full touch type. The comprimises they made at the start has hurt them ever since but you can carry on believing what you want.

    So you have seen sense and agree with me.

    Good.

    the samsung stores here in korea are well trafficked (showcasing tellys, vacuums, refrigerators, washers, etc.),

     

    but the samsung mobile ones (showing off phones and crap watches only) do not seem to get much traffic.

    Most Samsung's products don't worth a dedicated store to be sold....

    Samsung's store was very shiny but it charged full retail. No-one bought from there because several stores in the same mall offered the same products for a lot cheaper.

    A very good point.
    Why buy something in a Samsung store when you can easily buy the same product almost everywhere for less?
    There are discounts also on Apple products, in third party stores, but usually prices are more controlled.

    I wondered about that many former Olympic parks and retail are pretty much deserted afterwards.

    Windows user here.

    As much as I would like someone to replicate Apple's level of service for Windows machines, Samsung never got it right. So I am happy to see them go. Whenever I had visited the store (Sydney) myself they were rather ignorant, on the brink of being rude at times.

    What an experience!


    On another note,
    CAN AI PLEASE STOP USING AUTO-PLAY FLASH VIDEOS FOR ADVERTISING?
    Disable flash then it's quite simple to do
