Samsung score a victory over Apple

Samsung has had a pretty rough couple of week following its loss to Apple in a California district court. Samsung was found guilty of infringing on various Apple design patents and was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages. To add insult to injury, Apple is looking to add the flagship Galaxy S III to the banned list in the U.S.
 
Even with all of that bad news swirling around Samsung, the South Korean company can at least take solace in the fact that its Galaxy S III has knocked the Apple iPhone 4S off its perch as the best-selling smartphone in America.

"We believe this is the first month since the iPhone 4S launched in October 2011 that it was not the top-selling smartphone in the U.S. market," said Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley.
 
However, Samsung's victory over Apple may be short-lived. Apple has officially confirmed a September 12 press event to announce the next generation iPhone. Sales will likely start towards the end of September.

The first iMac was releasd mid 1998... hardly the 90s. It sold very well as Apple was digging itself out of its hole.

It replaced pretty much their entire consumer line. And cleared out the mess with all the various Macs and Perfomas (lower end spec Mac without the Mac name).

And yes, its part of Apple's comeback... for consumers. It was never targeted for pros. That is what Macs were for. A few months later in 1999 - the MacPro towers (white and blue) started shipping... the beige line was killed by then.
