Apple to Samsung: “Try doing your own design work.”

Apple to the consumer electronics industry: “We’re not your unbudgeted R&D department, and we never were. Try figuring this shit out on your own.”

Samsung to Apple: “Consumers have the right to cheap knockoffs.”

Samsung to the consumer electronics industry: “Pebbles in a stream! Stereotypical Asian poetry metaphors!”
