    It's about time Samsung!! Apple would be nothing without Samsungs chips and yet they try and sue Samsung and become enemies? When they rely on Samsung to make some of the most important bits in Apples products.

    I hope Apple sells millions/billions of devices next year, it's just making Samsung stronger and stronger. I wonder if this has anything to do with HTC making a deal with Apple? Who knows, it's just good news

    There must be some serious lack of communication within Apple. I don't doubt that someone knew Samsung was only company that could handle the quantities Apple require. Either nobody told the Lawyers or more worryingly they didn't care and the people who did don't have the power to reign the lawyers in.

    their legal team was to busy going after every company doing well in the mobile device market for fictional patents that they didnt have time to make it a solid agreement .

    20%?? I would have made it at least 50% to show my disapproval of apples legal tactics.

    They may as well - Apple have already let them know they are trying to avoid using them as a supplier so that bridge is already on fire - get as much loot across as possible now..

    I was kind of wondering when you were going to pitch in. And personally speaking I'd love to hear why you think the situation given in the article is "unfair" - looks like normal "get the most amount of moolah out of the suckers" US business practice to me.

    After all if Samsung REALLY wanted to be "scummy" then they would have put the cost of the processors up by a lot more than 20%. Although since the A6 has been costed at $28, Samsung's "massive" price hike only amount to less than $6 which ain't exactly going to take a big chunk out of Apple's profit margin on each iPhone5 sale - if my fallible memory is to be trusted that hike amounts to less than 1% of the typical purchase price.

    Here's a thought, Samsung could have arranged to have "production issues" - although on reflection I suppose that doing this might actually increase the desirability of the iPhone5 (since it'd be scarcer). I'd have more sympathy for Apple if they weren't such a bunch of court-obsessed loonies at the moment.

    Status: hating Rocksmith 2014 (PC version) with a passion - so frustrating!
