I posted an article earlier in the thread after someone pointed out the GS1 issue was 2 years old.

My friend has that issue on his Galaxy Nexus, he just got an invite to the Google navigation reality game thing too so he's kinda bummed.

Hmm... not really. Most people don't care about what goes on between them... Your observation is biased and based on what you see on forums.

US Design Patent '889 is pretty much a flat rectangle with rounded corners. Not much else to that patent and its drawings. Thank god no one has yet to find any Samsung products to infringe on it though (or any other products at all really).

Samsung is just OBSESSED by Apple. They can't promote their products unless the competition did something wrong in the early stages of a service.

As if Google Maps was flawless from day 1.

The problem with Samsung escalating "negative advertising" as compared to "comparative advertising", is it invites the divisions of Apple that ignore "some" divisions of Samsung, to begin to take notice and respond accordingly.

The legal department is probably segregated.

The marketing and manufacturing departments are connected.

Facts.

Hum... this ad we're discussing here is pointing out a flaw in iOS. Not in iOS users.

And frankly, their other ads don't insult me as an iOS user. I also make fun of the "standing in line for Apple products I've never seen" crowd.

My point was that it was about protecting patents; of which Samsung is equally guilty for law suits, arguably silly patents, etc. (As are a million other companies, which is why there's significant calls for patent reform).

It wasn't but it's much close to being flawless than Apple Maps is. And Samsung doesn't give a hoot about Apple. They just want their customers.

Google Maps were released in 2005. Expectations of digital mapping were different 7-8 years ago than they are today. No one is going to cut some slack for Apple for being late to the game. They should still have released a 2012 standards product, not a 2005 standards product.

Maybe some of us just expect to much of the company that "Skates where the puck will be". But that's what Apple thaught us to do.

Samsung's suits have mostly been counterclaims after being hit by Apple, or preventive claims (like the UK case where Samsung sued "itself" before Apple could do it).

Mostly, on the litigation front, Samsung has been responding to Apple's hostility.

Yes, in your world. All Samsung's ads are moking Apple owners or Apple itself.
you will never see any of this in any Apple ad.

But yeah, I am accustomed to your revisionism now. You wouldn't expect less from you.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with you on that, but we may have to agree to disagree. What I don't like (not from you) is reducing the whole argument down to the "suing for rounded corners." It just trivializes the whole issue between the two companies, as well as patent fights in general.

You're lucky, the newer Samsung TVs can be used to spy on you, in your own living room:

I'm an iPhone user... I like Apple products generally.

But I don't get why people are so angry and Samsung? Apple use to use attack ads against PC all the time. Remember the "Cool" Apple actor and the "Geeky" Bill Gates look alike Windows actor?

They hammered Windows and Window's failures with those ads...

pretty sure Navigon comes free with the GS3 and you can use the maps offline in that big vast wilderness that's in Australia, that's probably why they are promoting it, but hey who the hell uses logic?

This reminds me I need to watch Team America, been wanting to do that recently. I know it's different countries but I can picture Samsung's CEO as Kim Jong when he says

"You're not goring anywhrere my wittle wred, write, and brue, friend."

LMFAO god I love it!!

What would google gain from having all the functionality of google maps on the iPhone when they would rather push you to thier operating system.
