We’re used to it by now. Samsung releases a TV ad to show off how poor the Apple equivalent is to its product. Whether it’s the Galaxy S4′s ability to transfer files with a simple tap, or the fact that its  followers don’t line up like sheep for the new releases (they totally do), it’s not shy in taking a swipe at Apple.

Apple and Samsung court clash continues

The ongoing clash between Apple and Samsung is beginning to look like a nusery-based argument over who should be playing in the sand pit or not.
