Samsung phones did not sell well until after the Galaxy phones came out. The ones that bore a striking resemblance to an iPhone given an Android touchup.

i wouldnt exactly say full of wrong & hypocrisy. to expect an android loyalist to admit that Samsung is borrowing a bit from Apple's cosmetics just wont happen...but unfortunately it appears that way, not 100% but there are some similarities in the look of the UI. its been that way since the Galaxy S line hit. i dont agree that the success has come from iPhone'like similarities but there are similarities that arent just coincidence.

So why aren't your comments thumbed down?

Because I'm usually right, and I'm usually consistent. I'm also willing to admit I'm wrong if I am proven to be wrong.

There's also the matter of my opinions and statements being backed up by sources and proof, which I regularly post. And even when I make predictions, such as the one that high subsidies for the iPhone tend to hurt profits for carriers, I'm vindicated by News posts about carriers like Unicom and US Cellular deciding not to sell the iPhone anymore, or even for the first time. Also, when I made the prediction that the reason Samsung refused to pay royalties to Apple was because Apple's asking rate was probably extortionist in nature, I was vindicated by the revelation that Apple indeed was asking for twice what Microsoft gets from Samsung, and at the same time claimed that any Samsung developed tech in their phones was worth only half a cent per unit.

I'm also usually pretty civil to anyone who isn't clearly here to be antagonistic. You can ask Davecann2 about that one. I've even tried to be nice to people like Taco, and in fact defended people like him if they said something correct or civil.

So.... Yeah. Why indeed.

None of this should be news to you. You clearly read my comments often enough to thumb them down anywhere you appear.

Which is why Mxy is running true to form for taco - comments are full of errors and hypocrisy.

Yeah, but there's a different style of hypocrisy and wrongness there.

Besides, when I was banhammered for a week (for calling Taco a dumbass) I created an alternate account. I was banned there within three posts. If Mxy was an alternate account from Taco he'd likely not still be posting.

"Assuming Koh’s ruling survives a vigorous set of challenges from Apple’s legal team, which are probably being mounted in San Francisco right this very moment."

Apple a 600 billion titan that would play dirty, lie, cheat, photoshop evidence and even attack the judge if they don't get their way.

Go ahead, support such a bully. I wonder how much the iPhone would cost without Android as competition.

my Samsung Galaxy Epic 4G (galaxy 1) looks NOTHING like an ugly iphone so dont tell me what it looks like. And truthfully, NONE of samsungs phones look like the iphone. the iPhone, perhaps, looks a LOT like other phones, wait did i burst your bubble? im so sorry that rectangles and the color black existed before your rotten fruit!

well first of all...Epic 4G is a phone w/a slide out keyboard right? why would you even think that model was a part of my comparison. i was moreso referring to the software. TouchWiz looks similar to iOS. its been that way. now a specific model that looks like an iPhone is the Samsung Fascinate. no need to try to get cute w/your comments...b/c ive used both android & iOS...plus i have an SIII now. from the maturity level of your response, it appears you havent used anything other than android. chill out...its only a phone.

Sammy scored a big win with this ruling. Jurors will start their decision-making with both parties on an even playing field. Prospect for a mixed decision just got higher. Does Apple really want this to go to the jury? They may not like the outcome.

Oh I did not know about Apple failing to retain the evidence until now. It's Apple's way to accuse others about things they are doing themselves.

Good news. I didn't even know that Apple had not retained their emails, either. I was actually on Apple's side on that one, but once again Apple believes in, "Do as we say, not as we do."
