Legal Okay, I didn't see this one coming. German press agency dpa is reporting that Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction barring Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being distributed in the entire European Union except for The Netherlands, over a design patent. Competition at its finest, people, and this is clearly in the interest of consumers. I'm ashamed to be European. Updates in the article now. This iterative update process isn't really working when you've got a gazillion of them.

Apple's profits even before the whole iphone/ipad thing begs to differ. I don't know about you but if I'm making money hand over fist with less effort and less product than my competitor who has to basically go broke to earn the same amount as me, I think that's a win for me.

The only way you can look at Apple as failure is if you ignore how much money they make on their product selling less on their part. So yeah, Apple sells much less that Acer, HP, and Dell, yet they are the biggest tech company in the world at this moment, that with only barely 10% market penetration. Who's the real winner?

ever heard of siemens, toshiba or panasonic?
there are a lot of tech-companys that can beat the living crap out of apple ;)

and when it comes to employees i'd guess that foxconn is #1 (~1 mio employees)
and they are just a subsidiary of another company...

just took a look at samsungs numbers, now thats crazy stuff O_O
