    Default Boycott Apple for Infringing human rights abuses

    With all the aggressive tactics being employed by Apple, especially the letter strong-arming suppliers to remove specific Samsung products in light of an impending ban, I believes this severely infringes on the fundamental freedom of choice of consumers and should be met with fierce resistance.

    That is freedom of choice. If you feel that strongly about it, just don't buy any Apple products. End of story.

    OK, but that's hardly a human rights violation. Apple is operating within the laws our elected leaders created.

    If you really want to change vote for new leaders who will support changing the current patent system. Or write your current leaders and press them to sponsor bills to change the system.

    That's true. It will work itself out in the end. Apple (although trying) cant FORCE you to buy an iPhone...

    Corner the market in 5 years and you may very well be "forced" to buy an iphone/ipad as a smart mobile customer.

    I mean look at all the ways Apple has leverage with simple stuff like a VPN client for years and only now SOME Android devices are getting the Cisco anyconnect client.

    Look at all the "industry" accessories like docks and cables all "apple-ready". Even audio receivers and freaking treadmills at the gym. Really??? I know plenty people tired of not having those type of plug n play options make the switch.

    They're apple ready because Apple uses the same connector for all their stuff in the same spot. Android phones may now all use micro-usb but they're all located in different places.

    Let's not go crazy here... Many of us don't agree with the outcome of this trial. But, let's be honest, Samsung brought this on themselves. They could have tried HARDER to settle outside of court... they didn't. They could have had a BETTER defense in court, instead of flat out saying and providing evidence that they copied... they didn't. They could have intially DIFFERENTIATED their products to not make them look like iPhones and provoke Apple... they didn't. At the end of the day, there will always be a choice, especially in a market as fast-paced as the mobile one. These are billion dollar companies battling each other for your money, not for your human rights So, as others have said, vote with your wallet

    Who is going to make the "sign," you know, that poor California kid begging the courts for some of Samsung's bug hunks....just saying, they are doing a good job at being a brown bagged drunk.

    I never liked Apple products. Too bad the courts here couldn't be like those in the UK who found no fault with Samsung. I don't have to boycott. I don't own nor do I ever plan on owning anything Apple.

    ..because Samsung and companies they hire are free and clear and have never been accused of human rights violations.
