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:

If only it had a bigger screen, had 4G wireless, had a removable battery, was half the weight, had glass that didnt shatter after a 3 foot drop, had expandable memory via a MicroSD slot, and the browser was able to render the same websites I view on my PC, I would be all over that in an instant!

Actually for the rendering of the website blame the website developers for that because companies are creating mobile websites that look better on mobile phones and are looking for the user agent saying it is coming from iOS or Android so you get redirected to a mobile site. If the developer/company doesn't have a mobile site that redirects you you will get the normal website.

The iPod Touch has that override available. Check your phone's settings or Google the question to see if it is answered on a forum.

Usually the mobile website has a leading "m.". Try entering the address directly in the browser address bar without the "m."...you might be able to just delete it, saving a lot of typing.

The mobile sites are designed for those screens that are smaller than 2x2. Trying to get anything done on the desktop version of the site is near impossible with one of those phones. So you should be thanking the developers for making their sites phone friendly rather than cursing them for not making their sites available only to the phones with large screens :)

No I agree with you but the original post was blaming the iPhone for rendering the page differently. That has ntohing to do with the iPhone and has everything to do with the developer making the webpage more suited for the phone. I am a developer and do do this :)

Haven't the Apple fans told you? Anything relating to PC is bad for you.
