exactly my point though, apple needs samsung but samsung doest need apple
apple would die off without anyone capable of delivering to their demands while samsung have other highly profitable ventures like their galaxy S series phones, tablets, PCs, whitegoods, TVs etc
as samsung i'd rather see apple die off and no longer a threat then to see short term earnings that can easily be mitigated by a few lawsuits that significantly setback innovation and release of new products
apple's favorite move = block import and distribution of competing products then sue your arse off when you are out of funds because you cant sell your product after heavily investing in it.
probly why HTC folded to apple anyway and now dieing / bleeding cash
