Verizon stands against Apple

John Moe Sep 27, 2011

Hey, you can be friends with someone and still have quarrels with them. For instance, Larissa Anderson thinks “Night Moves” is the world’s worst song, I maintain that it’s “We Built This City”. Verizon is siding with Samsung as Apple sues to prevent Samsung phones from being sold in the United States. Apple maintains that the models are just iPhone rip-offs, patent violations, yada yada. Verizon, of course, can sell more phones if more phones are available. It would be nice to think that all sides are motivated by creativity and an urgent concern to help people stay in touch but it’s just about making money.

Also, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is launching in the United States this weekend. Congratulations, Samsung! You made the memo TWICE in one day!
