Once again Apple are suing Samsung yet again over patents in the US and now it is striking me that it is now a blatant attempt by Apple to destroy the Android market by attacking it major player Samsung!
What Apple is doing is morally wrong on so many levels as it has no right to waste US court time on a battle with another company rather than use the market place where their battles should be fought!
Plus what gives Apple the right to determine just what we as a consumer should buy and I think this is not lost on the Far East consumer.
In the end if Apple continues to follow this course it will lose in the end especially in the Far East which frankly the market it needs to expand and their current actions will result in consumers there not buying Apple products any more as Apple are suing likes of Samsung. Consumers in the Far East unlike most Europeans and Americans are far more loyal to companies who produce products in their own country.
Add to this a general underlying worldwide anti-US sentiments Apple’s actions just confirms and validates this sentiment in a lot of people outside of the US. I do suspect that Apple’s actions against Samsung especially in South Korea will become a political hot potato as governments will eventually accuse Apple of anticompetitive action within their markets and they will take action against the company.
All this shows that Apple, like Microsoft, has a very over inflated view of it’s importance in the Computer World. Personally in my view Apple is still an overly expensive minor player in Computer World who only gets away with it’s actions through good advertising and a mystique which surrounds the company.
Myself since using Linux now I would not spend money on Apple products as their mystique and functionality does not impress me any more.
