Aussies furious at Samsung Tablet ban

Written by Nick Farell



Online sales are souring


Aussies are furious that a court order is forcing them to buy Apple products when they really want to get a Samsung Tablet.

Apple succeeded in getting Samsung's Tablet off the shelves using a court order, claiming Samsung had violated its patents. However the move appears to have had an opposite effect to the one that Jobs' Mob desired. Angry Aussies are rushing to buy Samsung tablets online which is causing a headache for the local suppliers.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald retail giant Harvey Norman says it is "not fair" that it was prevented from selling Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was set to be a money spinner for Harvey Norman and Apple's antics will cost them $30 million. Not that Apple will care, it will just damage some of its rivals.

I don't normally point out spelling errors, but there is a great deal of difference between sour and soar:

"Online sales are souring"
Online sales are soaring - I believe is the correct line intended.

Does anyone know if Salmonella comes from Salmon? or even more worrisome: if listeria comes from lists? I'm fairly certain that botulism comes from bots.

A banned product is instantly 20% cooler then a stranded one.

Not to mention that a lot of us down here, have no desire to give Harvey Norman our money either.

It's now twice as sweet that we can burn two entities with one action.

yeh, the same (Gerry)Harvey Norman mob that want to add 10% to internet purchases(not the whole truth but close enough) are bitching about SGT10.1 court ban?

'But Harvey Norman give me 48months to pay, no interest'....sure they do ;) sound familiar to u peeps in the Nth of the world?

I imagine apple cares a good deal about the $30m loses suppliers are taking. None of those suppliers are going to be interested in selling apple or legitimate apple 3rd party products.
