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."

Apple is really good at being misleading in a way that's so simple that you're compelled to believe its the truth.

Most people don't bother to look up the nuances of their statements, and simply accept what they say as truth.

They are the ultimate FUD machine, or at least they used to be.

It is easy to exaggerate the shortcomings of the competition when your own offering is actually exceptionally good. That's what has always made the RDF that much more convincing.
