Apple Sues Samsung, Screws Themselves in the Process


Apple and Samsung have been business associates for years now. If you didn’t know, the iPhone 4 and iPad use Samsung processors. You know that super fast dual core processor in the iPad 2? It’s made by Samsung. Apple has built two phenomenal products in the iPhone and iPad two. Millions have been sold worldwide. So why would Apple feel threatened by Samsung’s similar offerings of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab? Maybe this is where Samsung can finally draw the line and stop selling their work to competitors. In a way, Samsung is shooting themselves in the face and Apple is buying the bullets.

Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung last Friday. The suit alleges that Samsung’s Galaxy S devices such as the  Galaxy S , Epic 4G , and various Galaxy Tabs , mimic the look and feel of the iPhone and iPad. Honestly, any and all touch screen devices mimic the iPad and iPhone. Any mp3 player mimics an iPod…and so on. Anyways Here is an except from the suit:

“Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple’s technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products.”

As you can see there, Apple is pretty pissed. While I don’t completely agree with the suit, I am not to sure what I think of Apple’s recent court adventures. They recently tried to get HTC and Nokia devices banned from US import. Could you imagine if the only smartphone available was an iPhone? I am sure Steve Jobs can. The fact of the matter is that if this suit actually gets approved. Samsung will not be able to sell these devices in the US. Furthermore, Apple won’t have a supplier for their processors. Maybe they would approach Nvidia or Qualcomm for a new chipset. Who knows…
