$4.7bn drop in the ocean?
"However, despite the enormous growth in Samsung's profits, they're a drop in the ocean compared to Apple's recently released results."
Are you serious? A quick check on the calculator: 4.7 / 13.06 =~ 40%
And this from a company who's rounded rectangle shaped products were blocked from sale in many countries. Also, $4.7bn probably goes a long way in Korea.
I think Samsung is doing an awesome job. Their phones look fantastic. Two years ago the only touchscreen smartphones I saw were iPhones. Now I see just as many (or more) people carrying Samsungs.
If you said my income was a drop in the ocean compared to Apple's, I can get behind that. But Samsung's 40%?
