    The only thing America has going for it economy-wise is the endless parade of Apple products.

    Samsung is really a shameless copycat company.

    According to UK, wrong, as Apple's been forced twice to say that is false.

    According to this article too, that is wrong, as it's Apple who copied Samsung's actual technology patents.

    Samsung actually uses fair competition and cooperation as their corporate strategy. They partnered with rival LG on many occasions, and even Sony and Toshiba (Sony for TV panels and Toshiba for memory). They would rather sit back and watch others destroy themselves and just rake in the profits of a cheaper partnership than actual destroy anyone. Bankruptcy is horrible for investment usually, partnerships are far more profitable in short and long term.

    Apple doesn't make anything in the USA. On the other hand, a good deal of the Samsung phone parts are made in the USA. While Apple does use Samsung for a ton of it's parts, it's been switching more and more to competing companies NOT manufacturing in the USA, and also skimping out on its taxes, to the tune of about 10-40 billion a year.

    Apple's dealings with HTC are most certainly a jab at Samsung, and we'll almost certainly see that the underhanded backroom deals Apple's been doing are anti-competitive and possibly illegal (if they were fishing for Samsung patents without going through Samsung)

    Apple products are certainly the only innovative things coming out of the U.S.A. these days.

    And they are selling too:

    Bertie, your comment has absolutely nothing to do with the article at all.

    basroil,

    Now, now, laddie. Take it easy.

    I was just replying to Jeff198527's post.

    And as the Moderation Policy states, "Some straying can be expected."

    Besides, I don't think it has "absolutely nothing to do with the article at all," since the article is about Apple and HTC.

    If you want to play games, then lets play games:

    Apple products are certainly the only innovative things coming out of the U.S.A. these days.

    Apple iOS products covered here are not manufactured in the USA. They are designed by a small team and programed by a larger team at Apple's campus, but manufacturing that apple actually designs is all done in China.

    And they are selling too:

    Galaxy SIII is actually selling more than any Apple product. In fact, it surpassed the iphone 4 as the most sold phone. Apple initially filed a motion to add the SIII after that news report.

    basroil,

    Not quite sure what you mean about playing games, but to reply to your post:

    I do realise that Sir Jonathan Paul "Jony" Ive, KBE and the rest of the small team at Apple design the Apple products that are built in China, and let's not forget, South Korea, as Apple still uses some Samsung parts.

    The team is small, basroil-san, for a reason. "Too many cooks spoil the broth." If Microsoft had known this proverb, maybe they wouldn't be in the mess they are in.

    As for your second comment, maybe you'd like to read this:

    Yes, but where are all these Apple products made? Not in America.

    jeff198527,

    That's right. As has already been stated several times.

    Designed in America by an international team, headed by Brit Jony Ive.

    Parts made in China, South Korea and Japan.

    Assembled in China.

    They are still American products.

    Still trying to figure out why you keep linking to this pointless garbage...

    You do realize that it has NOTHING to do with the court order, or even the sales figures for both companies which the court order was issued for?

    Please read your link again without just skipping to the "pretty pictures". You'll see it has to do with purchases made ON devices, not purchases of devices themselves.

    In the last month, Samsung moved almost 10 million phones into consumer hands, about three times the average Apple has. That's the reason they need protection against Samsung patents and worked out this very shady backroom deal with HTC. At this rate apple will be irrelevant in 5 years.
