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"

You are right of course, but Apple and Microsoft get over $75.00 of every android phone I'm sure Apple isn't jumping up and down becuase it gets outsold. Also since android has replaced Symbian as the OS for even non-smart phones it helps androids overall sells. Samsung is losing the financial war, and that's the bottom line of why they are targeting Apple in the comercial.

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.
