Using those is one thing, but going around and boasting about it, is another. Wonder what his superiors are thinking about that.

As for his view for "Samsung needing to move beyond its current device-centric model and work with partners to embrace a model of an open ecosystem to provide a quality user experience", that's a lofty goal, but with too many partners 'doing their own thing', it can never be as seamless as a tightly controlled ecosystem such as APPLE's. He's obviously smart (and brave) though.

It`s more like S-tunes, S-cloud. Replacing i with S is much easier than trying to find original names.

Samsung is currently the thorn in Apple's side, but honestly I think both Microsoft and Google have a lot to worry about. This is a company with large plans, I think.

They already had an OS prior to Android called Bada. It didn't really pick up but last I checked it was still more popular than Windows Phone 7.

I bet they use them while working/testing the TV (not the rumored Television, but the hockey puck set top box)

Seriously, guys?

C'mon. I'm pretty sure you could ask ANY tech-savvy person, what is it that people like about Apple? And the answer will be the same. "Well, Apple devices might not be top-of-the-line hardware, but they are easy to use, and it's the entire Apple ecosystem that appeals more so than the individual hardware."

It's not like this is some big secret! Oh noes, the Samsung folks have figured it out! Now they will copy it!

This has ALWAYS been Apple's strength. And it's a GOOD thing that other people, including their competitors, recognize it.

Honestly, it's as if you people WANT all of Apple's competitors to be blind, oblivious, and hopelessly out of touch. Because the world would be sooo amazing if we would only just kill everyone else off and let Apple run the whole show, right?

This guy said that Samsung has a better device, but that Apple locks in users through their ecosystem.

Is that really ad worthy?

I'm a typical Android user, but am deeply embedded in the Mac OS X ecosystem and will remain there for the foreseeable future. It is iOS that I despise becasue I can not manage what I need to do with my life and business.

The problem is, Samsung can't do software, and an ecosystem is all about the software. I would even say that it is impossible to develop competitive software in Korea. There is a 99% Windows and Internet Explorer monoculture, people have been trained to endure horrible ActiveX plugins, toolbars and other proprietary crap to get basic features of websites working, most PC users have not even heard the word "Linux"... maybe that's why Samsung is moving towards the Silicon Valley.

I found the GUI to be better, fast, and more responsive than iOS.

However, iPhone/iPad hardware is much nicer.

No they're probably converts to Android like me... I just swapped my iPhone for a Galaxy Note 2.

Still using an iPad, but the price of Android tablets are awfully appealing...

Some of you guys make no sense. Some people have an Android phone and a Mac. After all, this site is called MACrumors.

I've wondered how different ecosystems would benefit me, and if I would like them more.. my buddy is debating converting to windows 8 phone/computer/xbox to try that ecosystem

For me, Apple is just amazing, it works perfectly for me.
