    It's incredible you have to pay that amount of money for something created 60 years ago. The best economists in the world I don't think they could explain how those people calculated the damages.

    I'm no fan of apple (even though I have an imac and a mac mini), but I'll have to add that those manufactures instead of copying Apple's designs should copy Apple's support.
    You buy an apple product and you know you'll be able to update your device for about 5 years. You buy a samsung, sony, you name it..., product and you'll be lucky if you receive minor updates after 6 months.... (and if you support it yourself, and update it you lose your warranty)

    For sure I'll never again buy an android device that is not made by google (nexus line).

    I though they were going to ask for more. :rolleyes:
    On the good side of Samsung devices is the huge developer community for people that are into flashing/tinkering with their phones like me.
    My next purchase will be either a Samsung or a Nexus . . . Nothing else.

    That was a great investment for $20 million. And to think it could have been spent on something less practical than a clock...

    Yup same here. No more androids for me because of that. Does nexus gets regular updates? I may consider buy it.

    Nexus devices are the only ones to get updates when they are released. Everyone else takes at least half a year to never. :D
    But if you get a device that has a big dev community (Usually Samsung high end devices) you will get updates uber fast, the only thing you need is time and be a geek. :D
