Has Apple Lost Its Cool to Samsung?

Samsung Electronics Co. is succeeding where other technology companies have tried and failed: closing the coolness gap with Apple Inc.

The deep-pocketed Korean company has used a combination of engineering prowess, manufacturing heft and marketing savvy to create smartphones that can rival the iPhone in both sales and appeal.

Samsung, the market leader in smartphones, on Friday said its fourth-quarter profit surged 76% to a record high on the strength of smartphone sales, including its Galaxy S line. The latest version is considered comparable by many shoppers in both design and technical features.

Apple, meanwhile, reignited concerns about demand for its iPhone 5 after reporting flat earnings for the holiday quarter, sending its stock down 14% in the past two days. The stock has also dropped 37% since hitting an all-time high on Sept. 19, just two days before the iPhone 5 launched in stores.

Good, Apples are for idiots who love flushing money down the toilet just for a name.

It's actually a brilliant move that samsung is executing here by "copying" the look of apple.

Apple's lost it's cool for awhile now. The only reason I own a Macbook is because I was given it through my college tuition.

I'm not sure if it's they lost their cool. I think it's they just don't have the "Steve Jobs" to help make it seem cooler, basically saying he knew knew how to produce results in selling his product.

First of all Samsung is going to be the new king in phones as long as they keep innovating and Apple keeps selling the same dated technology they got nothing in the market.

The Samsung Galaxy is more popular in my country because its features are more adapted to social networking.

While the iPad is for loners.
