Apple is right, Samsung is following in it's footsteps.

Well as the owner of a Note 3 now I question if I should just sell my Note 3 and get a Nexus 5. If Samsung is going to be a jerk that makes me not want to buy their products.

The next move maybe making a Note or Captivate and selling it to other countries like apple

Solution is out and it is working for root user only.

Well, the only real accessories that I'd be using is a bluetooth earpiece/speaker & bluetooth enabled car stereo; aside from a basic protective case & auxiliary cable to my surround sound system. Therefore, I don't really care about the ID lock, at least for now.

Cheap tactic Sammy.
It may be same camp of android, but I like them the least.

Not Fair Samsung.. This move will bite Samsung..
People would start preferring other brands like LG, HTC, Sony..

Samsung's official statement on this:
it's more like quality check...not like what you guys think..
