Samsung is involved in MANY more business areas, including chip fabrication. R&D for their fabs, for instance, may be a significant amount of their R&D spending. Apple's R&D spending will be much more focused. Still, with the amount of cash Apple has, it's disappointing that they aren't spending more. It almost seems like they don't know what to do with the money.Samsung also outspends Apple on research and development
Zak, this brings your "journalism" to a new low.
Did you read the entire article, or just the headline? The article casts Samsung in a very positive light. Personally, I own several Samsung mobile devices, and despise Apple because I'm a PC technological elitist and I prefer a computer to be a computer, rather than an appliance like a toaster. The tone of the article was positive for Samsung. You'd have to stretch to see it otherwise....this looks like a cheap stab at Samsung by a fanboy journalist.
Sigh. More of Zak Islam and his inaccurate apple promoting articles. When will Tom's ever fire this guy?
How, precisely, does the article promote Apple over Samsung? It draws contrasts between the stated approaches of the executives of both companies and relays pertinent facts regarding market dominance and leadership. I can't speak for News or Editorial, but this looks like a solid article about a piece in the New York Times.Anyway, anything you say can't change the fact that Zak writes articles that stretch the truth by a LOT. Almost always in Apple's favor.
