Mic Wright:


  Lee found himself under significant pressure. He says:
  
  
    “[Samsung] used the legal system to block me from reporting anything against them or anything that made them uncomfortable. It was a waste of time. I was branded a troublemaker because people think legal cases harmed my company’s reputation.”
  
  
  Yet Samsung seems capable enough of making trouble for itself. In 2008, the current Samsung chairman, Lee Kun-Hee, stepped down after his house and offices were raided and a police investigation began into claims that the corporation was maintaining a slush fund to bribe court officials and politicians.

Lovin’ that Nexus.

This is by far my favorite part of the Surface website. Right on the front page.

"HTC needn’t ring any alarm bells just yet, it’s a company with a strong portfolio of competitive products, both in the Android and Windows Phone markets, however its period of unconstrained growth seems to be at an end. Now the challenge for the company will be to stabilize its profits and ensure that they don’t drop any further."

Vlad Savov at The Verge.

I would disagree with that.

A 20% year-over-year drop over two months, especially during the holiday season, says very bad things. The situation isn’t a burning platform, but HTC is not on the Queen Mary, either. A lot needs to be done.

Samsung was lucky to gain traction and record profits. While there may be room for HTC to do just as Samsung did, streamlining needs to occur. 

The success of Samsung comes primarily from its Galaxy line, not from the plethora of phones that are not Galaxy devices. HTC doesn’t have the recognition that “Galaxy” does.

More quality. Fewer devices.
