PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm never one to always be negative about something I don't like (he said, casually glancing at his collection of Apple products). Even in the universally despised territory of software patent lawsuits you can find a tiny grain of something positive - if you look hard enough. This time around, it's karma. Due to Apple's aggressive patent lawsuits, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has actually gained in popularity - the exact opposite of the anti-competitive intentions Cupertino had. Update: "The tablet Apple tried to stop". Oh Samsung, you cheeky monkey.

To top it off and I mean it, if I was in charge of Sammy, I'd setup a short exchange program and offer a free Galaxy Tab 10.1 for everyone that's willing to give up their iPad purchased in the last 6 months while the ban lasted or even give away (literally) free Galaxy Tabs! (It's been done before with the $2 Galaxy SII deal which is pretty much free). LOL Apple would go nuts ;)

I'd offer a $50 trade-in for any iPad or iPhone on a new Samsung phone or tablet and call it "cash for clunkers".

I have "moderated" you recently so I can't vote for you today. This will have to do. (;

Much like Mercedes would go mad if Honda offered a free Honda car for every Mercedes handed to them? They would go mad with laughter.

This analogy is not accurate. An Apple product is not like a luxury car (nor like a race car).

An Apple product is more analogous to the current VW Beetle: a cute, retro, oversimplified look that appeals to feminine/fashion leanings; and overpriced for what you are getting under the hood.
