Matthaus Krzykowski, co-founder of mobile app search firm Xyologic, thinks Apple's heavy-handed, anticompetitive legal campaign against Samsung may backfire. Couldn't happen soon enough.
Everybody agreed: this is a PR disaster for Apple as such behaviour just breeds very strong Anti-Apple sentiments with the tech crowd. It also tells everybody that the Samsung products are dangerous for Apple aka “good enough” for consumers. If I were Samsung I would run some remakes of those 1984 commercials once this litigation gets settled. Apple, you are creating yourself a very Microsoftie image right now.
