   Apple, one of big companies for electronic devices such as iPhone, Mac series, and iPad sued Samsung which produced Galaxy series and others as a copycat. In addition, Samsung countersued Apple. 

   Apple is the best seller for smart devices now and it has some rivals such as Samsung, Motorola, HTC, and etc. It is difficult to expect who will be the best next. However, it can be said that Apple will lead the area for a moment due to their uniqueness of the products. Samsung is just following behind Apple with Galaxy series, so Apple cannot avoid Samsung as a rival.

   It is a kind of a sensitive debate to point out who the copycat is because each product has different characteristics. However, the media is playing with this baddly, so people are confused with the fact. The media should not only analyze about the legal action of the two companies carefully but should also metion about it with an objective view.

   Which product is better can be only judged by users and there can be a prejudice to evaluate the products among the users. Nevertheless, the nuemerical statistic which shows the number of the users of the product can obviously show which one is more popular and handy to use. The most popular seller should be more modest and try to improve their product better and better. Also, the others should try to be the best in the world and to be a good rival. Then, one of them will be the best next.

   Nowadays, many people are using information retrieval engines such as Google, Naver, Daum, and Yahoo. Among the engines, Korean people mostly use Naver. A few years ago, people used the search engines through using computers; however, because of development of technology, there is a good device which called 'smartphone'. Around 10 million people have smartphones in Korea, which shows that the importance of the smartphone area cannot be ignored by global companies. 

   A lot of companies are trying to make better smartphones and there are several operating systems(OS) such as Android which is made by Google, I-OS which is made by Apple, and Windows mobile which is made by Microsoft. In addition, recently, I-OS is the most popular OS in the world. However, many manufacturers are choosing Android because they can use the OS for free and they can also modify it for their products. Due to the popularity of Android, many companies are implementing good applications which can be installed in Android smartphones. 

   Owing to the popularity of Android, there are some issues to be argued by companies who provide information retrieval engine service. They mentioned that Google may require not preloading other engines in the products which is based on Android. 

   "We acknowledge that Google set up a new ecosystem by making Android, a mobile operating systme, and distributing it for free, but it isn't fair to use that operating system as a tool to hinder market competition", an official said from NHN which owned Naver.

   It is difficult to recognize the truth for users. However, if it is true, Google should try to compete with others fairly and should provide various opportunities to users to have the smartphones in which other engines are preloaded.

   Most people (especially, wives of the families) have recently felt that everything such as food and oil is getting more expensive than the last year. What are the reasons of the circumstance?

   One of the reason is because of the current state of Japan. The radiation brings the investors not invest money to Korea as they did before. Also, because of rising oil price sharply which is needed to produce many things brings the inflation to Korea. The major countries of producing oil are suffering from the revolution for the human rights and it affects the oil price to increase.

   Accoding to BOK(the Bank of Korea), current consumer prices have been going up quickly by 4.5 percent. The BOK governor Kim Choong-soo mentioned, "It's true that prices rose 4.7 percent in March, but the monetary policy committee sets rates based on expectations for the future, not just what happened in the previous month." The key interests rate is decided to be kept at 3 percent by BOK last Tuesday although there is inflation in Korea. People and experts exactly do not know if the decision of BOK will affect inflation and consumer prices. 

   According to The Korea Times, a British expert said investment capital is going to come back to Asia in two months last Tuesday. Osama Abbasi, CEO of Credit Suisse Asia Pacific said in and interview with The Korea Times, "We have a very big investment conference every year for Asia in Hong Kong, where we have about 2,000 investment clients and about 300 corporations across all sectors and all countries in Asia and we carried out a poll on 'At what point do you see fund flow going back into emerging Aisa from the developed (countries) and 75 percent of the room felt that it would happen in two months."

   In conclusion, there are some positive and negative opinions about the future of Korean economy. Although many people are struggling with high consumer prices, there are possibilities to get better. The Korean goverment should concern about inflation more and should do their best to solve the problems of the current circumstance of the Korean economy.
