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:

Don't leave out Ataris! They were freaking Apple out because of a device available for the Atari ST called the Spectre that, once you equipped it with an Apple ROM, could emulate the Macintosh - actually some of the Ataris were faster (both machines used Motorola 68K processors), so you'd actually end up with a faster Mac with a higher res monitor! Atari also beat Apple to the portable punch when they released their first portable and then laptop and, equipped with a Spectre, Atari actually produced the first Mac laptop! :-) Although it was canceled, Atari also had a device called the "ST Pad" in development and prototypes existed.

So yes, both Commodore and Atari took turns showing up Apple back then.
