    Anyone think that Google may be distancing themselves from Samsung? I think these two are negotiating and are going to come up with some cross licensing that protect each other. They will live in harmony just like Apple and Microsoft. Maybe these types of agreements will force the Android manufacturers to use vanilla android. It's always better for the consumer if he/she isn't exposed to laggy bloatware and quicker updates.

    Could be Cap.
    But I think this had more to do with big US companies no to go at loggerheads with each other.
    One thing is fighting foreigners, another if you're almost family.
    Heck, what did I say? It happens all the time right?
    But here maybe, there are other forces at play...

    It's not really "secret talks" if we know about it, now is it?

    As my wife often says blood is thicker than water, which compliments Del's comments, as Cap says the less bloatware the better!

    Why wouldn't they buddy up makes perfect sense to me, I'm still shaking my head at Samsung threatening to sue Apple if they release a LTE iPhone

    The reason is simple Craig, there is a lot of bitterness between the two companies, it has become a war, they are no longer looking at the consumer, just want to score points against each other, like the statement by Apple 1 billion is not enough we want 3 billion. Good luck to each of them, Samsung's new products look good, Apple's products always look good. I look forward to a brighter tomorrow.
