Samsung hits comedy gold... again

Samsung knows a good thing when it sees it. The company struck gold with its TV commercials mocking iPhone users late last year. The commercials depicted rabid Apple fans that wait in long lines to snap up the latest iteration of the iPhone.
Over the weekend, Samsung upped the ante with a print ad that directly went after Apple's new iPhone 5.
And now, Samsung is ready for a second round of "Apple Mockery" TV advertising. If the first commercials were amusing to you, this one is sure to tickle your funny bone as well. 

Here are some choice quotes:

"They're saying this phone is going to be like a precious jewel"
"All I'm saying is they should have a priority line for people that have waited 5 times"

I guess bashing the competition is what you have to do when you can't sell 2 million phones in less the a few hours.... What happen to advertising on the merits of your product? Samsung is bleeding money like a stuck pig, but instead of increasing the quality of their products, it easy to run down the guy who is kicking your rearend in sales.

I am not sure what you mean by that. Samsung outsells Apple. Android as a whole outsells IOS by 4 to 1, and that margin is increasing. 1.3 million activations a day and climbing.

Samsung is losing the financial war

Samsung is losing the financial war

Neither company is "losing", both are laughing their way to the bank with billions of dollars in cold hard cash every quarter. Your classification of Samsung as the "loser" is simply a fanboy justification of your own expensive purchases that you are probably more emotionally invested in than is healthy.

Incorrect, Samsung is doing great. They're far and away the most successful Android handset maker right now.

If we're talking about companies like HTC, Motorola, RIM, then you'd be correct. Those companies are getting screwed right now.

nah, it's that advertisement costs nowhere near what it yields in sales for tech.

I would like to see where you are getting your info, as unless you are talking pesos, you are a little off. Samsung is not paying apple anything, and is paying MS $15/handset.

While Crapple does make more profit/handset, that only really helps people with crapple stock, and in no way helps the idjits that buy the products.

Has been ordered to pay Apple 2 Billion based on a perphone patent basis, don't know the exact amount per phone only that it comes up to 2 billion. Also Apple is asking that be increased to 3 billion, which it will most likley get. Also Sumsung has been ordered to pay licensing fees for each patent it violated. look it up on Arstechnica, or do a general internet search!!!!

Google and android have their own share of problems on the patent front and will end up paying out billions to Apple and Microsoft...once a again do genral internet search or look on Arstechnica...

What I don't understand is why people like yourself have to attack others, becuase they have a difference of opinion. Discussion is great, but attacking people becuase they don't believe as you do shows your ignorance, not your superiority.

Won't happen and after appeals is over, Samsung won't be paying anything.

Apple did the same tactic with its Mac V PC ads.....

And I am pretty sure there are still more PCs than Macs out there....

Yeah, but only about 20 to 1. And 1,000 to 1 in the business world.

macintosh is a failure regarding the pc market.

"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
