Will Apple announce anything to counter Galaxy S4 event?

Companies due this often before/after another competitors announcement.

Pretty easy one to remember was Google having a Google Maps conference before Apple's WWDC last year.

Pretty sure if Apple announced something/anything it will make some news.

Of course it wouldn't outdo them but it would only benefit Apple right?

Normally I would say yes, but I think Apple is gonna take a step back this time and see how things play out.

Could be bit of a risk for Apple, since it'll take away some of the attention of Apples own announcement.

A response by Apple would probably help Samsung more than it does Apple.

Yes they do but Apple is not like "other" companies.

Anywhoo, tomorrow is the day, too late now, and if Apple do anything at the 11th hour it would seems like DESPERATE.

Apple might announce that Samsung was right and people do like bigger screens.

Apple had better get its crap together. A faster i5 isn't going to cut it.

They just released Phil Schiller with a chip on his shoulder. Does that count?

Yeah lol good for him...too bad he came off sounding like sour grapes. He would have been better served not saying a word, instead what he said, regardless of the truth, made Apple seem worried. If I were Samsung I would be laughing at his comments as they and the timing of them were so transparent. Sad.

Somedudeasking oh irony! Your reply typical you. Price stock does not mean **** when you are one of the best tech company out there with over 117 billion in cash.

Since when is $425 "deep crap?" Apple has like $100 billion in cash. It's down from $700+ because stock peoples are more cray cray than the looniest people we get on here.
