Re: Samsung processor
"Yeah, that's probably why Apple are being aggressive patent trolls, to give Samsung free advertising."
Of course that's not what Apple *intended* Cliff, but that's what they *did*
When the ban on the first Galaxy Tab was lifted in Australia everyone knew about the tablet before they could sell it - far far better than Samsung could have done themselves.
Just like the court action against Microsoft all those years ago for "stealing Apple's interface". Coverage of the court action basically equated the interface of Windows with Mac in the eyes of the public, even if there are significant differences. People looked at 2 computers, saw one was half the price and in their minds the interface must be so similar the more expensive one sued the cheaper one.
But shhh don't tell Apple, its far too much fun watching them hand over mind share in court rooms while they think they are getting a win :-)
