Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Oh believe me, I'm not defending Apple on this. I think they were major assholes to do this, not only because I feel they had no basis for the suit in the first place, but also that they were using it as part of an attack on Android in general. Even though I'm not an Android fanboy I feel Apple should compete on merits, not in the courtroom.

I was referring to Samsung's latest hardware releases which truly do ape Apple hardware in overt ways. Their Windows 8 tablet hybrid looks so much like a slightly thicker MacBook Air that it could easily be mistaken for an Apple device. It's almost as if they are saying "come at me again, iBro!"

As for the Galaxy phones, I'm in full agreement with you. They look and operate nothing like an iPhone, which in my personal opinion is a good thing.

My position remains the same though; they can fight it out all they want but I'm not taking sides by "voting with my wallet" anymore. Why limit myself because of something that my little purchases won't affect anyway? Most of the hardware I buy is secondhand anyway, so even if I do own a Sony or Apple or Samsung or whatever device, they never saw my money.
