Reuters: Tim Cook didn’t want Apple to sue Samsung


If you’re in a mood for reading, Reuters has published a detailed article on the relationship between Samsung and Apple. Although the article says most of the things we already knew, it also drops some interesting details on how Tim Cook opposed the idea of suing Samsung. According to their sources, Tim Cook was against it because the Korean company was also Apple’s biggest component supplier.

The article also states how Apple’s relationship with Samsung started in 2005 when Jobs, after his comeback, was looking for a stable flash memory supplier and commented “whoever controls flash is going to control this space in consumer electronics.” Samsung had about 50 percent of the market share at that time and still holds the number one position with a market share of around 39 percent, according to DRAMeXchange.
