They sued them for BLATANTLY ripping off Apple's designs. Have you seen the the Galaxy line side by side with the iPhone and iPod touch?

If you read stuff you would know that the lawsuits are not about existing products.

they are about the next line of samsung products that are not even released yet. Samsung has come out and said as much...

also how are they stealing from apple when apple buys everything from them? Illogical good sir.

Pretty sure it says designed by Apple and not Samsung on the iPhone.

Even the layout of the apps on the phone looks the same.

whoever manufactures it, be it samsung or TSMC or intel, i hope they would ruin apple's processors just like not soldering one part so that it would not operate as desired. Apples are meant to rot and this apple has been preserved for a long time.

Do you really think Apple would allow that? They have control measures for manufacturing just like any other company.

Ever hear of quality control?
