Apple and Samsung are currently entrenched in courtroom combat. Apple alleges that Samsung stole some of iOS ’ s vital functions. Samsung is stating nuh-huh. Right here ’ s a video clip of a Samsung VP, discharged by Coco O ’ Brien ’ s web monkeys, that shows Samsung, the business ’ s items and its mindset are completely different from Apple ’ s.

He’s OG — original geek — and a defier of easy categorization that clearly explains how I ended up as the son of a gun I am today. In fact, without an understanding of where he came from and who he is, much of what would fill a completely self-centered Growing Up Geek simply wouldn’t make sense.
