That's an interesting way of saying things, especially in the light of Apple's recent aggression against Samsung in Europe.

Yesterday there was a news item here, it's forbidden for Samsung to sell their Galaxy S and S II here because the Android photo application is apparently violating a patent from Apple that has to do with the way you can scroll through the photos. Probably Samsung is going to modify the software so that they can continue to sell the phones.

Apparently his health has unfortunately taken a turn for the worse as he has resigned as CEO of Apple. He will remain on the board. I wish him well.
