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."

Yes, but suing was obviously Steve's idea. Just look at how quickly Apple settled with HTC after Steve died. Most people here would probably regard anything Apple made after the first iPhone (and perhaps the Macbook Air) as evolutionary and non-innovative.
