Legal I'm guessing Apple is getting desperate, since its software patent lawsuits aren't doing particularly well. Moving on from software and design patents, the company is now suing Samsung over... Patents for mobile phone and tablet cases (more at The Verge). I think Apple has more offensive lawsuits than products now, so technically, "patent maker" is more accurate than "gadget maker" or "device maker". Fun times.

That is not a Samsung store. Samsung is not selling retail within the location of one of their third-party retailers! Do you see a cash register anywhere in the display?

It is merely a Samsung display that sits within the walls of the Euronics store.

Here is a direct quote from the Apple Insider page that you linked:
"Update: SetteB.IT reports (via Google Translate) that the app wall is part of the Euronics store's design and not commissioned by Samsung."

Notice Apple Insider's phrase, "... not commissioned by Samsung?

Whether or not Samsung had anything to do with the Samsung display shown in the picture, Samsung obviously has no say in how one of it's re-sellers decorates the walls of its own establishment.

It is likely the Euronics store also has a separate area for Apple that probably has non-Apple icons on the surrounding walls. And, of course, that Apple area is not an "Apple Store."

Fanboys can really be moronic sometimes.

Good Lord, no! And no front door! And no people! So it isn't a store at all!

I just want to clarify a few points -- please let me know if I understand correctly:
1. Apple fanboys really believe that the Samsung display within the Euronics store is a separate retail outlet that is operated by Samsung.

2. Apple fanboys really believe that Samsung had an influence in putting the Apple-specific icons on the wall behind the Samsung display, in an attempt to copy Apple and/or to fool customers into thinking that a Samsung tablet is an Ipad.

Are those statements correct?
