Legal "The widely anticipated two-day meeting between chief executives of Samsung and Apple yielded no agreement between the parties mired in a hot legal dispute over copyright infringements." Why end fruitless litigation and spend that money on improving products or, I don't know, charity, when you could throw money at lawyers instead, to the benefit of absolutely no one? These lawsuits are Jobs' blemish on the company, but Apple can't back out now for fear of losing face, even though Cook has indicated he really wants to. Petty.

Apple's only interest is getting rid of all the competition. When Tim Cook says "we just want people to invent their own stuff.", he actually is saying "we don't want any competition".

"I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong, I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
This doesn't seem like a company that will negotiate.

Apple made some type of products successful. Now they think they actually invented them and are entitled to a complete monopoly.
