Curiously enough, I think it will be interesting if Apple wins. After all, Samsung makes a lot of the parts for the Iphone... they could just stop making them to thumb their nose back at Apple.

Samsung only fabricates the A5 chip under license, but they're not the exclusive supplier any more. TSMC has been a supplier since last year. Maybe Samsung will be out of the picture with the iPhone 5...

Cutting Apple off would definitely hit their supply chain, but I think it would do some damage to Samsung too.

Samsung can't stop making it because they have contract with Apple to produce the processor and memory for iPhone. Samsung produces 25% of iPhone parts which is worth approx. $45. Once the contract with Samsung is fulfilled, Apple can easily switch to different supplier such as Intel/AMD to produce the processor and Crucial/Kingston for memory.

Apple switched to LG to make the retina display for the new Mac. Also Google maps was dropped by Apple after a bit of back stabbing. They only thing they can't drop really is the search engine.

Apple Map is supposed to be better than Google Map. We'll see when iOS 6 comes out later this fall.
