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:

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.
