Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

Samsung spends 10x more on marketing than Apple. I see their advertising a lot in The Netherlands and no Apple ones.

Not just in the Netherlands. While visiting my family on the other side of the states over the holidays, I saw a crapload of ads for the Galaxy S3. I don't own a tv myself so had no idea how extensive Samsung's advertising had become. I didn't see one signle Apple ad, though I did see a few awful ads for Microsoft's Surface RT lumped in with the Samsung ads.
