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.

It's a two-sided war, make no mistake. Everyone is calling Apple the bully, but Samsung's actions after the big verdict have proven that they are simply asking for it and they don't care if they are labeled infringers.

Don't forget they aren't some mom-and-pop business that just started up; they have been around a very long time and are one of the biggest LCD manufacturers in the world. They also have a finger in just about every other tech industry in Asia, right down to the silicon. It would be the equivalent of Apple going after Sony or Microsoft, though I doubt in those cases people would be so quick to defend the latter companies.

Their CEO is also involved in some shady mafia-esque stuff, though that didn't come out at trial to my knowledge. I also doubt that if somehow Android were to go away, Samsung would stop making phones. They would simply switch to Windows Phone 8 for the flagship devices and ramp up development on Bada for everything else.

Bottom line, you can't trust ANY corporation, and I'd rather watch them fight it out from a distance than get directly involved.
