Samsung's annual strategy meeting to focus on war with Apple
A published report in a Korean publication on Thursday reveals that on December 17th and 18th, the Korean manufacturer will hold its annual strategy meeting at Suwon and Giheung, Gyeonggi Province. From the four corners of the globe they will come, 200 Samsung executives traveling over great oceans and populous cities, to meet with the big honchos. And since it is a strategy meeting to go over plans related to 2013, you would expect the main topic to be business goals as it has been in past years. But instead of tossing around projections and numbers, next month's meeting will have a different feel to it because the publication says that the main topic of conversation will be Samsung's war with Apple.

Apple and Samsung are the modern day Hatfield and McCoys

Apple and Samsung are the modern day Hatfield and McCoys

In girding up for this battle, Samsung has already axed its vp in charge of matters pertaining to its Cupertino based rival. While Samsung has denied it, the company allegedly responded to Apple's request to lower chip prices by hiking them 20%. It seems like Sammy has already applied the war paint. On Wednesday, after meeting with the CEOs of Samsung's subsidiaries, the head of Samsung's mobile communications business, Shin Jong-kyun, said that the company will no longer negotiate patent issues with Apple.

The next chapter in the U.S. patent war between Samsung and Apple will take place on December 6th when a hearing will be held in front of Judge Lucy Koh to discuss a number of post-trial issues including Apple's request to triple some of the $1.05 billion in damages it was awarded by the jury, and Samsung's request for the judge to throw out the verdict and order a new trial based on alleged bias by jury foreman Velvin Hogan.

Take a lesson from Woz... REINVENT and stop the upgrades. When that happens, I'll gladly say iPhone had innovated at least itself.

it's funny how Samsung makes your beloved A6 Processor. Innovation, using other people's stuff and making a over glorified app launcher that has shown no real change in the last 3 years expect Siri. Everyone just sits there and talks to Siri for 10 mins and is over her.

My beloved A6 processor? I'm talking about Apple should reinvent the iPhone instead of upgrading the same old iPhone. Please respond with something relevant when you respond to others, unless you're responding to the wrong post.

True Innovation stop with iOS popularity. Ask yourself a question, if you have a billor dollar idea would you whisper it into apple's ears. No right!!

But your user is in the other end, inside Apple walled garden!!.

Internet freedom to innovate ends with apple's reign and popularity. Apple fan boy are sell out to true innovation.

What innovation? everything was stolen which belong to other's and stolen and bribed! Apple is no Evolution Revolution company, they are an R&D company which buys parts from others and put it on there device. You joker™®©

That is true - try telling your favorite fruity company that...instead their motto is LITIGATE DON'T INNOVATE....

Only if it is based on STEALLING and slapping Apple logo over it ... otherwise it is called copying :)

Load up on supplies of popcorn and beer! This is going to be the Cage Match of the decade. Sammy and Apple are going thermo-nuclear on each other.

Not so fast, it looks like HTC is coming back so it will be dangerous for SS to ignore other competition than Apple.
