    I agree, Apple are petty and childish. Whatever happened to healthy competition? If Crapple are that confident in their products, they wouldn't need to throw their teddys out of the cot. Still doesn't change the fact that the S3 is a better phone than the iPhone 5. As the Samsung commercial says, "the next big thing is already here". Apple need to grow a pair of balls and stop sitting down to go for a piss. Whiney bunch o' bitches, just like their customer base.

    Really, at this point Crapple is just digging their own grave.
    It just shows they're extremely greedy, demanding more money after the case settled after :

    I am in total agreement with Apple on this. Samsung completely stole loads of Apples original ideas, profited from them and made Apple lose tons of money. Apples products have forever been damaged by Samsungs pilfering, their unique identity tarnished forever by a bunch of Korean thieves. Samsung are no better than any of the Chinese knockoff companies that make trash like Apads and alike, they just have slightly more polish, but even then they are garbage products compared to any ipod, iphone or ipad.

    I would happily watch Samsung burn to cinders, they deserve it.

    The sarcasm makes me laugh.

    Yeah, Apple is horribly greedy. I can still remember the time when "it isn't about the money, it's about the morals"

    Samsung did copy Apple, they got fined $1b. That should be enough, really.
    Apple, your iPhone 5 doesn't lose out in specs anymore but You are still suing.
    I thought you only sue because your products are starting to lose in specs?

    I am a connoisseur of technology. And like any connoisseur of anything I enjoy the real deal, the original product. You can stick to your forgeries if that makes you happy, it's no skin off my nose and I don't care. You probably can't afford the real thing anyway. Despite any denial you may have convinced yourself into believing in your heart you know that my experience will always be more superior, pure and enjoyable. And I don't have to live with the guilt of knowing that I am supporting theft by owning a Samsung product.

    Always know this.

    Always.

    That's both pretty deep and a pretty good trolling session pretty accurate. I'm sure you kick yourself in the behind every single time you use your Samsung Galaxy Note iPhone 4S, which you are known to possess and love. I mean, what are puny, small screens original ideas compared to functionality theft? Besides, with the advent of the iPhone 5, all the competition will be pretty much wiped out by its bigger screen and not much apart from that myriad of improvements. :P

    Stay classy, p1ng!

    The only reason they claim to be suing them for this much is because of "damages in profit"
    That's a very weak case (knowing apple they'll win anyway) and there is no way to prove that their loss in profit has anything to do with the fact that samsung's devices are similar.
    Apple only has so much time ticking on the clock, until samsung and everyone else that they have unjustly sued have enough and strike back.
    There is also only so long that their customers will support them.

    Hooray more childish actions by crapple, if only they could innovate and take back the market oh wait the only thing they ever done was steal and sue. I guess Samsung already won if they're up against such a child in the market.

    Haha Apple is only continuing to sue Samsung because they no longer have Steve Jobs to make them money.
