Apple Apple's Phil Shiller has been trash-talking Android in the press these past few days - just as Samsung is about to launch its Galaxy S4. "Public, preemptive slamming of a competitor is far outside Apple's PR wheelhouse; it's a dramatic shift for a company used to making news rather than reacting to it. But why is it happening?" The Verge hits the nail on the head: "Cupertino's behavior this week is yet another symptom of Samsung's stratospheric rise in the smartphone market globally, a rise that challenges Apple and has outright stifled Android competitors like HTC and Sony."

What actually is the trash talk?

I've just read the whole article, while it alludes to some alleged trash talk, I can't see a single quote containing said trash talk. Am I missing something here?

The spreading of the false rumor that the Galaxy S 4 would ship with an old version of Android is a serious foul. Can the folks at Apple really be that desperate?

The only explanation I can think of is that the next iPhone which Apple has in the pipeline is underwhelming compared to the S 4.
