Another drama has been taking place for the last few years -- Apple's battle against Samsung. In this fracas, Apple's been peddling what critics call the fiction that the Korean firm copied its ideas (and abused its patents) with its own mobile devices. Firing at Samsung across three continents, Apple has prevailed in nearly all the litigation so far, winning close to $1 billion in damages in the U.S. and most recently beating Samsung in the courts on the latter's home ground, South Korea.
Putting all this information in one big picture, does Apple seem doomed to you? To me, it seems as if the company has spent most of the year putting the pieces in place to regain all the momentum it indisputably lost upon the tragic death of CEO Steve Jobs| (http://www.apple.com/stevejobs/).
2014 will not be like 2013.
