Cue the rabid Apple fans that will hate Samsung for exploiting a competitor's weaknesses -- something that is a relatively standard and effective marketing practice -- in 3, 2, 1...

I didn't really find it that amusing. I didn't like the iPhone 5s response either.
I think they are all funny. I have a teenage son with well too many friends to count. I think it is funny to watch all of them to do the ice bucket challenge. It is quite amusing to me to watch them some on instagram and some at my house. I find all of the ice bucket challenges amusing. I also remind all the kids to make a donation too.

So the smartphone ice bucket challenges just add to the humor.

Time, because it rules EVERYTHING!

Neither did I, yes it helped to raise more awareness, but it's also Samsung seeing this as free advertising and mocking of it's competitors of the back of a frigging charity! Pretty desperate and pathetic, but that is Samsung I guess..

IMO this is a very very desperate and underhanded move by them. And I don't normally complain about Samsung.
