[citation][nom]amk-aka-Phantom[/nom]NICE! But I thought that using bashing brands in ads isn't legal... was I wrong? Isn't it why they always talk about "other" products in all TV commercials? Then again, visit Apple's website and they're ripping on PCs in general and Windows in particular on every page.[/citation]

its not done just to stay out of any legal problem with saying "our brand is better than bounty" or whatever, and than they also test teh most generic brands and leave it up to your imagination.

apple in their comertials... realistically, who are they competing with? there is not a single person who doesn't know its really just apple and windows.

all that said, samsung is already in "legal trouble" and its also the truth, so its very unlikely they would get in trouble over it.

wait...Apple is copyrighted isn't it? I think Lemon and Banana are too.

That was a pathetic ploy by Apple...probably ticked off even their fanboys..

I disagree with those who say that Samsung is bashing Apple. The way i see it Samsung stated the truth the Tablet APPLE TRIED TO STOP. Where the bashing in that statement? Hell even Steve Jobs said he'd go nuclear and use up his company Billion dollars reserves to defeat Samsung. Someone must be rolling in his grave now.

Anyways Samsung did a great job with that add. If only PC GUY had the balls to say to Mac guy if it wasn't for me bailing you out, your company would be bankrupt.

Yes, yes, Rabbits, Squirrells, Puppies, Kittens, Lemons, Earth, Limes, Bananas, Rutabagas, Taladegas, Water, Fire, Mice, Keyboards, Air, Toast, all Apples everywhere, and of course TV, these things are all, ALL copyrighted by Apple. Forever. Mwahahaha. Not. ! Fanboys, apple will continue to make shiny happy trollops for a long time to come, do not worry. But - their reign as a superpowerful tech co. - that is now over. for good. because of a quantum change in the tech level available. yes, apple pulled off a -number- of impressive firsts. but they simply can't manage to keep that up. - that is, they can't keep it up -enough- to stay a monster co. they're done with that. period. no escape. so it's just goodbye to all that and (to many) none too soon either.

It saddens me, though, to see "Apple" written on that box, given the context of said tablet not being sold for many months.

I bet Apple would sue for Samsung using it's name for indirect publicity.
