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."

This pretty much sums it up:
"Samsung ads trash iPhone: great. Apple’s Schiller says Android users switch to iPhone in large numbers: defensive WSJ" - Gassée

Perhaps it's because English isn't my native tongue, but what does that mean? Can somebody explain, please?
