    Money, yes, on that "global economic collapse,” but it won't be from profit.

    Every country in the EURO except maybe France and Germany are in powerful national debt. Now add the U.S. who is in horrendous national debt of 16 Trillion and counting. That’s what will bring down the world monetary system.

    Then comes a “One World Currency”, to support a One World Currency one needs a “One World Governing Body”. Now to keep the lid on that, one needs a “One World Military”.

    Progressive, Socialist-Democrats and far-left Liberals get what have always wanted.

    But after that, they will remember that saying with much misery “watch what you wish for”.

    Sorry, didn't mean to GET-OFF on that. TMI. LOL.

    A sale is define as something purchased and received. If you recall the iPhone 4S was said to have hit that number in two days, but after the smoked cleared it was really two months to actually hit that number.
    For example:

    Now on the flip side, the Samsung Galaxy S3 actually sold 20 million in one hundred days. Now when you figure Apple has only sold 110 million iPhones (2G, 3, 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4S). You figure it out, since 2008 Apple sold only 110 million units and Samsung sell 5th of Apples total sell with a single unit in 100 hundred days. Remember the Galaxy S2 and S3 were not part of the lawsuit, since Samsung moved the to manufacture line into separate parts of the plants. So they now build the Apple iPhone in one building and the Galaxy series product next door.

    Got one myself with that S.W. HTC 3g and I like it so far.

    Almost bought an iPhone though. I like American companies to suceed, Japan and China plus other have been plagiarizing American companies far too long.

    But that's OUR governments fault. Got their greedy little hands out $.

    Didn't Samsung lose the law suite from Apple about the laptop?

    The lost a lawsuit stating that Samsung had used 21 of Apples patient technologies. But those patients that Apple had claimed are actually HTC patients. The Samsung devices in question have not been in production for Samsung for two years.

    For now...

    It is just all proprietary.

    I like to actually own the things I buy for 600 bucks.
