Legal "The 2010 report, translated from Korean, goes feature by feature, evaluating how Samsung's phone stacks up against the iPhone. Authored by Samsung's product engineering team, the document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone." Pretty damning. We still need to know a few things: how many of these were actually implemented? How common are these types of comparisons (i.e., does Apple have them)? Are these protected by patents and the like? And, but that's largely irrelevant and mostly of interest to me because I'm a translator myself, who translated the document, and how well has he or she done the job?

Bullshit! Apple would have just found some one else to get parts from. Samsung just happens to have the volume Apple wants. Many companies provide components that Apple needs. In fact Samsung can't make enough so Apple has multiple vendors providing the same things. Like the display panels from LG and Sharp.

Here is Apple's vendor list

Everything Samsung provides for Apple is procurable from someone else. Samsung didn't invent NAND Flash, nor do they have the best chip Fabs. That would be IBM and Intel.

So cut the utter bullshit Samsung love.
