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.

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.

You can't deny that Apple made purchasing DRM music...

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.
