Commercial shows Apple fans camped out for the iPhone 4S, marveling at the Samsung Galaxy S II

The past year's events have made it pretty clear that Apple and Samsung aren't the best of friends. Apple initially accused Samsung of copying Apple's iPhone and iPad designs when developing the Galaxy line, and a long list of lawsuits have been launched back and forth ever since around the globe.

Apple may have successfully killed Samsung's sales in some countries outside the U.S., but Samsung isn't going to take this lying down. In its latest commercial for the Galaxy S ll, Samsung makes fun of Apple fanboys by portraying a scene where they're all waiting in line hours in advance for the next release. While waiting, the fanboys are noticing passerby with phones that are "magnificent," and of course the phones in question are Galaxy S ll's.

The fanboys make pompous comments while waiting in line, such as "If it looks the same, how will people know I upgraded?" and an exchange between two fanboys that goes as follows:

Fanboy 1: I could never get a Samsung, I'm creative.

Fanboy 2: Dude you're a barista.

Check it out for youselves:

Thanks Samsung for an entertaining AD and a great product.

It amazes my how so many people flock to Apple IProducts with Apple has one of the most restrictive environments out there. I just don't understand why Apple has NOT been sued for their lock-down methods and content controlling system. I can understand the need when dealing with children, but I'm an adult and can make my own decisions regarding the downloading of content. You can't even load your own content without going through Apples Gate product...ITunes.

People choose to give up their freedom to be Fashonistas... Thats their choice, but I will never own an Apple product.

Barista... just one of the many "jobs" held by a hipster in skinny jeans who claims to be unique but instead follows the trends of skinny jeans, Apple products and act as if they were superior to regular people.

After watching Cult of Mac special on CNBC and dealing with the large amount of hipsters in NYC I have no respect for these people.

While I do not personally own apple products (except for my wife's hand-me-down ipods since she seems to need to upgrade every year) I do see the appeal for some people with the simplicity. What I think gets people (on this board and other tech sites) annoyed is all of the sheeple that simply get every idevice created so they can be "cool" and because everybody else wants one. Most people I know with one try to convert me, and while there are good points, I just cannot get behind the closed system or condone some of their practices.

My brother actually tried to convince me not to get a droid (waiting for the galaxy nexus) as even though he likes the droid phones he has tried better, he is stuck due to how much he has purchased through Itunes, which just emphasized why I do not like iproducts.

In the end, I think it is a personal preference and one I am glad I get to make, as if apple (or droid) went away, the technology would probably suffer from the lack of competition.

Yes I have t agree with you that one should just enjoy their phone.

But if the idea of Malware/Viruses is keeping you from Android, you have made a mistake.

1st of all don't belive anti-virus software makers when they say you need antivirus software.
2nd if malware and virus is so prevelant on Android how coem no one has actually ever caught one or knows of anyone who has....just food for thought.

Apple doesn't have security vulnerabilities..? Seriously?

Albeit, Apple's biggest problem with security has always been Quicktime, which has thankfully given all you fanboys the ability to jailbreak. But keep in mind these vulnerabilities can let a multitude of nasty malware -- it's just that hackers don't really care about a product with 5% of the marketshare, Apple's only saving grace on the security front.

As usual, you leave the important shit out...

key words : the Amazon Appstore is the only game in town on this probably-soon-to-be-very-popular Android device

Why you think Amazon is going to have ANY influence on NON-Amazon items is beyond me but I guess in your Apple mushed brain anything is possible.

And the even more important...

"About

I’m Marco Arment, and I’m a web and iPhone software developer in the suburbs of New York City. This is where I write and share."

Through seriosly doubt the android market would ever replace the google market as the default app store in fact I would say it's far more likely that at some point amazon will allow the google market to be installed easily on the fire

Figures, he always post some shit from someone who has ties to Apple somehow. I guess Tony can't make up his own mind so he has to post shit from everyone else.

Amazon<>Android.

Amazon forked the Android operating system and will be installing Amazon-Android on their tablet.

Although they do not have other Android App Stores featured, they do not lock out foreign apps the way that Apple does. Rather they do it the way Nokia does. If you use only the icons, you are restricted to the registered app store. If you are able to find and manually install apps, then many more sources become available. This means Apple style security for those who are not tech savvy and Android openness for those who take the time to learn how to do it.

Like Unix and it's clones or the J2ME feature phones, Android comes in multiple variations that are mostly compatible and it is up to the owner of that phone to locate the apps compatible with their version of Android.

Yes it is a little more effort to maintain, but you, the enduser, get to choose which OS, (iOS, WinMo, WP7, Android-variant) works best for you.

For me a J2ME feature phone has the apps I need. so I will pass on the Apple tax of higher price on the handset & phone plans.

Pricewise and featurewise I am still looking at the Nook tablet (also a non-standard Android with it's own proprietary app store)

The only reason Amazon can and will do this is cause they have their own app store, their own video distribution store, their own music store. No other phone maker has this so none of them can do it they all rely on Google Market so no, lock downs like this will be for very very few devices and only from companies who have the resources to have all these stores by themselves.

I take it you missed all the news that although Amazon will provide the only official app store for their devices, there is still nothing stopping anyone using their device from installing any manually downloaded android app.. Let alone, android market could still probaly ported with very little effort.

iTunes is just about the worst program I've ever used. It's so bloated and so freaking slow it actually boggles the mind. Why does it have to install so many other damn applications when you install it? Why when you uninstall iTunes does it leave some of those apps behind? Why does it basically try to take over as your default programs for so many things when it's absolutely horrible at all of them?

I'm with you. I've always said that if I have to use iTunes I just won't get it. Ever. I just feel sorry for the poor shmucks out there that invested tons of money buying music on that crappy system and can't use that music anywhere else now. Apple's plan all along.

Take it with a grain of salt... You can't deny that Apple made purchasing music far easier a process than stealing it something which they deserve to be lauded for.

But still, they were never the first at anything... just the easiest.

Fixed. What's funny is they finally removed DRM from iTunes about a year ago (after making gillions by charging $0.30 extra for "premium DRM-Free files), but iCloud uses DRM on anything you download from it that you previously bought with iTunes. EVEN if you paid the ridiculous 30 cent DRM removal fee originally through iTunes! Wtf Apple?

Such a whore of a company, with so many idiots who don't know any better to prop them up.

Eh... I am admittedly a pirate, and I know what I do is mostly wrong...

As such, I can't complain when companies try to fight against piracy..

Great example... one of our local towns recently installed dozens of traffic cameras, which prompted a few citizens to start a committee railing against them, trying to get them removed. Now, honestly -- I break laws everyday (I'm breaking 3 right now), but how can any *##hole create any argument against a traffic camera?! If you break the law intentionally and get caught -- own up to it! Deal with the consequences of your own actions and stop whining.

Though with iTunes... I have even less sympathy. You could have purchased the same exact music anywhere else (for probably less) and maintain your rights to use it how you please. You also have to understand the licensing situation... until the FCC gets off their #$$'s and clearly defines proper usage, all of us who still own cd's are technically not allowed to create digital copies to toss on all our devices -- as far as the law is concerned, you only have the right to play your cd. Such draconian licensing situations necessitate Apple's DRM (they need to keep the deal sweet to keep getting that exclusive content), especially when you are talking about popping your music onto a server to be accessed from anywhere. It's not right -- but it's not entirely wrong.
