The Macalope Daily: Swallowed whole

Tim Cook is taking exactly the right approach, staying the course, despite distracting expectations swirling around him. Apple is a marvel of human achievement. Why waste the beautiful sight of it by casting your gaze on a group of misbehaving children who have never accomplished anything remotely close to it in concept or scale and don't have the faintest understanding of how something this remarkable operates and grows in the first place?

Of course then Samsung will claim it had the idea first.

Samsung probably wants to make a car, but they are waiting for Apple to show them how to do it. They can copy it and claim that there is no other possible way to make a car. Then, if Apple sues them, they'll claim that Apple is stifling innovation.

Actually, Samsung did start to make cars back in 1995. The company was taken over by Renault during the Asian Financial Crisis later on, so it's called Renault Samsung Motors these days.
Notice the blue Samsung oval at the bottom left of the page?
You have to realize, Samsung makes EVERYTHING. Living in Korea, it's tad scary sometimes.

Samsung actually made cars untill the Asian financial crisis when all korean chaebols were hard hit and needed to consolidate its business, so they sold their car unit to Renault. The brand is still called Samsung, so certainly there is a Samsung car. Googled, and see it yourself.
