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.

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.
