“This is something only a vertically integrated company – armed with its own semiconductor business like ours – can pull off.” Apple didnt have any semi connection before PAsemi, Yet Apple beat Samsung in phones and tablets. Couldnt the same thing happen again, in TVs?

Good point. The thing is that while Samsung dominates the TV market, Apple doesn't -- yet. So, curiously, "smart TV" or "connected TV" could be the next battleground -- not in terms of what TV itself does, but how your TV can "interact" with your mobile phone or tablet devices.

One of the main reasons for Apple's success is the easy access of contents, i.e. iTunes and App Store. Samsung has little control of contents, what will all the "connected" devices share?

This is what Samsung lacks most. It is not well known as a content provider.

The problem here is, as any Samsung owner can tell you, that Samsung is as guilty as anyone of abandoning its user base and leaving them with only marginally useful software. Samsung seems quite good at hardware but their software engineers either don't get the support or just don't know what they're are doing. So if their idea is to sell me a new updated "module" to plug into my TV every other year when they never really fully developed the last "module" I purchased then I don't think they will fool us with that for too long.

I, for one, do not want my TV watching me. That's just Orwellian.

Samsung is always pushing the boundaries in its electronics and phones, and that is why it is able to stay on top of the game. By integrating all its devices, it can build even more strength in branding, and increase sales throughout. I like the idea of the future proof TV. It gives Samsung TVs more longevity, and more cost savings for customers. William - http://www.jensenrvdirect.com
