Tablets …You get the picture. Apple Vs. Samsung

Samsung produces the A4 and A5 processors (among other bits) found in some Apple Products. If Samsung stopped producing them then Apple would not be able to make select products But this would also mean that Samsung would lose a large part of their income (?) Is it pointless?
In April, 2011, Samsung stated that Apple had infringed on 10 patents 3G Wireless technology Samsung strikes back

We already know that Apple is really dissatisfied with Google’s android Samsung’s Tablet runs on android Samsung supplies Apple with items crucial to their products So why would Apple want to start a war with a provider? So who is this really about?
