If you hate them, vote with your wallet, it's that simple. Personally I like their mobile products and prefer them over competing android products. As well, it's pretty annoying that there is still no intel ultrabook that matches the resolution and features of the rMBP - maybe that will change, but for now the rMBP is subjectively the best portable computing device available. Hopefully PC makers will step up to the plate and produce a good product this fall, and then i'll buy an ultrabook instead.

In the meantime, I still have my desktop PC with Windows so maybe i'm not a complete heretic. drum.gif

If you looked at the licenses required for developing for android and iOS you would think differently.

From a consumer point of view; both are pretty identical and most decent apps are now available on BOTH platforms. However as a developer, Android is considerably cheaper to develop for and you are no where near as locked down as iOS. The biggest thing holding Android down is a lack of consistency across the range. The varying specification levels mean that the perceptions of Android as an OS vary wildly depending on which handset was purchased. Not only that but each manufacturer has their own "version" of the OS such as HTC sense; which also impacts the user-friendliness and perception of Android. So imho, Google really need to start regulating handsets a bit more and every handset should come with a bare-bones version of Android without crap like HTC Sense etc. bloating the device.

OT: I think this is going to effect Apple more than Samsung. All it takes is for TSMC to have supply issues or fabrication issues (40nm saga anyone?) and Apple basically put themselves between a rock and a hard place. Issue for Apple is they only have 2 products using these TSMC chips; the iPhone and the iPad (iPod is really an iPhone without calling capabilities imo). So let's say that TSMC are having issues fabbing chips; Apple only has 2 products......they're pretty much down poop creek. Whereas sure; Samsung lost a bulk customer, but they deal in so many other areas such as NAND, TV's, peripherals, chips for other phone companies etc. that they will be hit far less than Apple would if something were to go wrong. If TSMC drop the ball here it is going to hit Apple BIG time.
