The war that is raging between Apple and Samsung is all about advertising. Both get all the attention while uninvolved innocent parties such as, HTC, LG, Nokia, ext. Have lost all the lime light.
In the Droid world, HTC was ahead of Samsung in popularity, it will be interesting to see where they stand now.
As for Apple,...well they just set global records with the IPhone 5. All the news about the lawsuits has grabbed the attention of even the elderly, who had no previous interest in such things.
Our very own arguments against such actions only further their gain:(
A clever business move from a clever company, exploiting our desire to make our thoughts and opinions heard.
Does anybody even read this far down in the comments? lol.
