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.

Really sad but true, and entirely prozen... you take a Mac device, a PC, and a linux box and stick them in a room full of hackers... First box to go down is always the Mac box... second is always *nix, due to extremely well published enterprise vulnerabilities, and last -- the windows box.

Meanwhile in the real world 99.99% of malware and security breaches occurs on Windows PCs and the Mac world is overwhelmingly free of malware. How amusing :)

It's why this is so funny

because it resonates with millions of peoples actual real world experience. It's also why it stung Windoze fans.

lol, Macs ARE malware! Every person I know of that own Macs have run into all sorts of problems with trying to get software to run properly on it. And as soon as there's an update, that software starts to fail. Your best bet is to not even install anything on it or dual boot...

Double-digit growth of tiny numbers doesn't actually mean much. Windows has what, 85% or 90% of the market? It's not possible for them to have double-digit growth, is it?

Look at it this way: the Apple desktop only has a few times the market share of the Linux desktop, and Linux has no marketing department and spends $0 on advertising.

Well, personally I have only once personally experienced an infection on one of my a windows pc's... the blaster worm, more than a decade ago (got it from napster... lol)... I wasn't even running any av software back then (not many were). The only ever comparable annoyance I ever had was back during pre-sp1 XP when pinging certain ports caused the rpc client to crash (simple kpf firewall rule fixed that). Since then (yes, about a decade now) I have never encountered any problems with a windows box that I wasn't asking for.

Contrastingly, all my tech-incompetent family members that switched over during the iCraze... well, they haven't been so lucky. My sister hasn't been able to print in two years -- can't figure out how to clear the queue (though, I'd consider it a minor problem compared to buying 4 macbooks in 3 years..). But hey -- not my problem if a mac user isn't bright enough to google it. I can just say I only do pc's, and let the laughter build inside. Not to mention how nasty some of those quicktime exploits can be... Thank god I'm on a windows box where security updates are free, even if you have an illegal copy -- unlike Mac, where updates are sparse, and typically cost money.

Every time Apple comes out with a new version of OSX they charge around $30 for it and call it a new cat name when under the hood it is just the same OS with a few new updates and security fixes.

When Microsoft releases a new version of the same OS they call it a Service Pack or SP. They too include new updates and security fixes, but they don't charge a single penny for it.

Does that answer your question?

Point releases are similar, OS 10.7.1, 10.7.2, 10.7.3, etc. Security updates and bug fixes, totally free.

I've been through every upgrade of Windows since 2.0 and OS X since 10.2 (20+ years compared to 9), and OS X updates are similarly significant. In the case of 10.4 it was a more substantial upgrade than even the move from XP to Vista in terms of under the hood changes and features added. 10.5 and 10.7 are as big as any major Windows version I've seen.

So no, your assumptions regarding service packs and OS X updates are completely incorrect.
