Yup, and it's awfully stupid of Apple to do this because Samsung supplies Apple with a lot of parts that go into the iPhone and iPad...and the iPhone and iPad are responsible for 65% of Apple's total revenue....on the other hand, Samsung is an extremely diverse company, they have a lot more than just electronics, and even their electronics division is massive compared to Apple, with hundreds of different products from laptops to digital cameras to refrigerators and HDTV's....thus no one division of Samsung is responsible for 65% of its revenue like Apple with the iPhone and iPad...all Samsung has to do is say 'Apple...get your parts from somewhere else' and Apple is screwed as Samsung is the ONLY supplier of a lot of that stuff, on the other hand, the financial hit to Samsung of cutting off Apple would not be anywhere near as bad....probably no more than 5-10% of total revenue....so this fight with Samsung is ultimately suicidal for Apple....Apple needs Samsung a lot more than Samsung needs apple...

I thought that Apple's jihad against Samsung was the 'brainchild' of Steve Jobs, and that with Jobs gone Apple would come to its senses...instead they've decided to double down on stupid, which I guess means that it wasn't just Steve who wanted to go on this jihad..
