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."

I think he confused Samsung with Sony, both starting with same letter and what not.

Nope. There's a book out there called "Think Samsung" by Kim Yong Chul.

Trouble is, (afaik) it doesn't have an official English version out. I personally had a Korean acquaintance translate most of it for me, but I suppose you can probably find unofficial English "scanlations" on the web these days.

From the articles written about that book, they seem to be saying the book is about the executives in that company and not the actions of the company itself. The executives stole from the company and cooked the books.

If that is so, then it's scum running the company, but that doesn't make the company scummy.
