karma indeed, 2.6% of Apple stock is much more than $1 billion something that SS has to pay.

HAHAHA this sentence made me chuckle. :)))

"Apple is apparently fully aware of the issue, and gobbling up LTE patents as fast as it can to fend off the upcoming legal onslaught."

:))) It's like trying to dodge a meteor hitting your city. :)))

The correct spelling is losers, not loosers, and the only thing Apple is the best at is making a second rate product!

I told ya at once knw. That never bother , worry bout spellings. Just try to understand the reality. That the apple is the smartphone history makers... If there z no apple then u won't c a capacitive touch screens, if there is no apple no high quality games on your mobile. Most importantly if there was no apple then no android .. Hope u need to know how does google CEO took advantage to make " android "he was in apple board for 4 years and took secrets and made that stolen product.. Haha ... LoL but they still need to take some secrets to make more quality and more smoothness ... If u can think wisely think that how many product making by an apple ... iPad, iPod,Mac pc,mc note book,iPhone .... What else... And also Samsung ???? All kinda household items... But think bout the consideration of those company.. Apple on the # 1 ... Even overtaking microsoft... So what else man..sry dude .. Even now your telling bout my spells. I just try to give the well sound I thoug to give u like"looooser".. I don't know what kinda kid r ya ? LOL ...

It would be difficult to beat Apple in their home country even if the allegations from Samsung seems genuine.

Razor looked out over the battlefield. Apel’s forces outnumbered the Alliance’s; the white shrouded, mindless drones swarmed over the ground followed by their Shuffle tanks and a few mountainous Nightmare mobile forts. As he stared at the unfolding battle grimly, Razor brought a black-lined hand up to his ear. Speaking into the microphone embedded in his thumb, he growled “We’ve got ‘em right where we want ‘em, ladies. Come on down and join the fun.”

Captivate, the Galaxy Squad leader, called back. “You got it, Major. Girls, let’s light their asses UP!” A raucous cheer came from the other squad members as they fired the LTE boosters on their Galaxy S fighter-bombers and rocketed through the atmosphere to the planet below. Lining up for a strafing run on the Apel lines, the sleek yet powerful fighters opened up. Their auto rail guns fired bursts of 100 tungsten rounds a minute, the velocity unmatched by any other round fired from a weapon. The energy released on impact matched several tons of TNT, the rounds slamming all over the Apel forces. Entire companies were vaporized in the attack. Tanks burst open like crushed peanuts. The Nightmares were peppered and turned into ruined hulks.

Razor stood from his crouch, nodding his head in satisfaction at the devastation. His black eyes narrowed as his augmented vision added up the remaining enemy forces. A black lined bicep flexed as he reached over his head and unslinged his sniper rifle. He spoke into his hand again.

“Let’s hear it for the Galaxy Squad!” The cheers from below answered him. “Now let’s mop ‘em up, ladies and gentlemen!” With that he jumped on his hoverbike, revving the engine and dropping off the cliff to the battlefield, swiftly riding to the front of the line and leading the charge, his command of armored soldiers rushing the decimated Apel lines. The sound of their battle cries and firing weapons echoed over the rolling hills and the cliff behind them, drowning out the terrified cries of the drones as they were torn to pieces...

(Why yes, I am a geek.)

You have a very dark mind Sniggly... Which isn't something you would expect from someone named "Sniggly".

Dark? In what way?

I'm a little bummed that people so far don't seem to like the story clip. I'd like to know what turned them off to it.
