They don't have to be the first. They let Americans to take all the risks. They wait until the future is clear than come in with the best products. They are smart, very very smart.

i was in korea in the 50's on the DMZ (but, you are too stupid to even know what the DMZ is, so you can look it up on Wikipeida when you're done drinking your cheap beer). koreans are NOT way smarter than Yanks. That is why they needed Yanks to defend their azzes from the #$%$ Chinese. you are stupid.
AAH so ! You are so correct ! Kim Jung Il used an Apple laptop ! He roved it ! He thought Apple was the best computer out there ! Kim used Apple to keep track of his army, and even to keep track of who he executed ! Apple is FAR superior to Samsung, BUT...Koreans are SMARTER than Amelicans, so they know how to STEAL the ideas of Amelicans and sell those ideas at a discount in their worthless countly !! Ah SOOOOO !
aapl will pay dearly for sourcing components elsewhere, samsung has been supplying aapl with very high quality parts on time zero defects .....now samsung will concentrate on using more of its production and technology to flood the smartphone market from top to bottom with better products even faster, thus providing much higher risk for aapl going forward.....
one simple question : why did appl share price fall so suddenly upon iPhone 5 launch in Sept ? no one seems to talk about that ......lets forget about all the other hype = why did aapl share price fall so suddenly on iPhone 5 launch in Sept ?
Samsung will be losing business from Apple who will no longer be purchasing LCD screens or chips from Samsung. This will be a huge blow to their numbers. However, they will take a HUGE hit when Google starts charging them for Android. This is sooner than you think.
