Apples is Afraid. It Is As Simple As That.

For the first time, there is a company (Samsung) and a line of devices (SGII and SGIII) that actually pose a real threat to Apple's market dominance.

And Apple doesn't know how to deal with this new challenge. So they're trying to elliminate it.

Based on the leaked specs, the upcoming iPhone 5 might not be significantly better than the SGIII in many regards. And Apples is worried.

It is as simple as that.
I like the way you said based on the leaked specs. We all know these specs can change - dramatically - at any time, however when it comes to a device released by apple, do the specs even really matter ? To the people that count, there is only one si...

Pride Comes Before the Fall.

Apple may have had a case on the orginal SG series, but the SGIII is completely redesigned and even engineers have stated that Samsung has worked around Apple's designs.

I find Apple has bitten too much of its own Apple. Tim Cook doesnt possess the look or feel of Steve Jobs to carry the torch. Also Sir Jonathan Ives may be the celebrated engineer and developer of the iproducts, but it was Steve Jobs' ideas and implementation that gave John the templates to work with. Tim Cook stood in front of the press in a keynote address after Steve's death. He claimed no one had to worry. Apple still has plenty of ideas to be major competition. I will await to see what this maybe. The most celebrated days of Apple were when Steve Jobs held the ship ...
I agree John, Cook seems to be avenging Steve's death and as you implied he doesn't have oomph to carry the torch.

Only iSheep will defend their actions but the masses will see this as corporate greed and anti-consumer. At the end of the day they'...
At first, I used to see fanboism on both the deep rooted Android and iPhone devotees, I like both systems and never quite got that nuts over either platform. After all they're phone OS's not a friggin religious war. But, Apple has gone p...
States the simplest explanation is often the most correct.

Here's the simplest explanation:

1) Apple isn't out to eliminate their competition. They simply want their competition to be competition, not lazy knockoffs. Samsung was being downrig...
I want to know how people can determine Tim isn't fit to be in Steve Jobs shoes, Apple is still working on Steve's visions of products, we haven't seen anything of Tim's just yet, but you can expect it to be just as great. Sure, we won't get Steve's g...
All Tim Cook has to do is follow Steve's outline for the future which should put Apple in a comfortable position for many years to come. That and all the patents. The thing with technology is it changes so rapidly. One year your number one the next y...

1 billion Not enough

Looks like Apple is just getting started on Samsung. Samsung is their biggest competition bigger than anyone right now, I too would sue the hell out of them but I would also be watching public opinion.
Why didnt they add the Galaxy 3 from the start? Does not make sense on why just now it was added when its been out awhile. Im thinking this all started from the first galaxy so Apple just waited and waited.
In all reality if you look at Smartphone sales, they are really only competition. Both Apple and Samsung together account for over 70% of global smartphone sales.

I Just Want To Buy a Phone Without The Drama

I am ready for a new phone and Ive tried to distance myself from the drama but when you allign yourself to a brand by forking over $200+ for a phone and a 24 month commitment and to carry and rely on that device for two years as apart of your life. You kind of as a moral person have to take the bigger picture of who you bought your equipment from and their corporate ethics into consideration.

I was going to wait for the next Apple phone before making my decision but its things like this that make me want to go out now and buy a GSIII today.

I am and have been a loyal Sprint customer since 1998 and I have never waivered with my carrier so with their current equipment line up Android or iOS are my only real choices. I can't wait for Wi...
instead of basing your decision on a companies decision to sue another company? If the SIII is the phone for you, get it, if the next iPhone is for you, get it, no one is telling you to support either company. If you base your decision on selecting a...

Apple should just try to ban Samsung as a brand from existence at the rate they're going! Some of the lawsuits are justified but they need place there full focus on making their products better. Cook has huge shoes to fill now that Steve Jobs is gone. I'm an iPhone owner and I think this is too much. The SGS3 & the iPhone are different. Give it a rest Apple!
