Samsung Wins Import Ban Against Apple Devices
Regardless of where the company is from Apple was found guilty of breaking the law and infringing on a patent. A silly patent war they started because they were so far up their own A$$ thinking their phones are superior. I hope they get what they deserve.
America is a continent, not a county, and no matter how deep the habit to call themselves 'Americans' , will be pretty much the same French people call themselves 'Europeans'.
And getting back to the actual subject, Apple will at least pay attention to other companies, since they will not just sit down on this Ban.
2) Americans call themselves "American" because the name "United Statesian" just doesn't have much of a ring to it.
2b) According to your logic, "America" is a continent because the earth has continents containing the word (i.e. "North America" and "South America"). Therefore your own logic dictates that it is acceptable for the people of the USA to call themselves "Americans" because the official name of the country is "United States of America"
3) The French people in France are European (check a map)
I love it when people go off bashing the US with a smug sense of intellectual superiority while being completely oblivious of their own ignorance.
Just thought that worth mentioning
What I WAS taught was that the Americas are three continents, North, Central, and South America. However, you are right about Oceania, it encompases Australia and Antarctica.
These aren't really meant to be or should be considered "Continents" but "Regions". Oceania is a region, the Americas is too, as is: Indoafrica, Eurasia, etc etc.
You'd be surprised how far behind the United States is with their education system compared to most other 1st world countries. I have Russian and Czech friends who began to learn calculus + advanced geometry in grade school.
Nice to see you support Korea.
Your statement is really just racism.
Of course it wasn't really there was it? Isn't it true, Globhead, that you knew that from the start and simply had an emotional, knee-jerk reaction to his post and due to a lack of substance behind your reaction you brought out the "racism" card to guilt and shame them into silence? Why did you stop your libelous assault there? Why not accuse them of other grossly misuse...
And no, racism is not just about superiority. It's about the insistence that there be a division and conflict along those lines. There are plenty of racists who will admit that they are less concerned with which race is better and primarily concerned that their own members not support the other group. "Well I guess you must be a Korean-lover" is exactly the sort of response they would make when someone else takes the "wrong" racial side even when logic/law agrees.
That's so patriotic...
If you call yourself an American company, but when asked "what products do you manufacture in that country?" and the answer being None, then I would disagree, no, you are not an american company.
