That isn't that bad of an amount. Large enough to get everyones attention, yet, with the aize of Samsung, isn't going to be too hard to pay off - not going to be fun mind, but not a killer amount.

Justice FAIL!

If you put a bunch of people to rule on evidence they don't understand then the way it goes is this way. Apple is an american company and Samsung is not, then Apple will always win hands down in the USA.

This case will of course find is way in to higher court and hopefully there will be some people with the basic understanding of technology that will struck it down.

There is after all a lot of prior works before I phone that invalidates this ruling, Apple them self have stolen the ideas. And the patents ruled upon in this case is a joke in general since its basic human interaction and normal usage of technology that for some reason the US patent office gave away like as much else the US patent office did not understand what it was for.

Only way this will play out in the end is that all customers on all front are the losers especially higher instances stand by this ruling. Because then all real competition is crushed and also no one can develop any kind of phones, computers or any other tech that is dependent on software.

So not even as an Apple owner my self would think this ruling is a benefit for us the customers or the general population of this planet.

A thermonuclear payload UP YOUR ASS, Samsung - this is all you deserve.
I figure that Google is intended "evil" that Apple wants to wage war with. And Apple will probably sue them next.

My question is.. what happens when Apple destroys all iPhone look-a-likes, and has a monopoly?

They were only asking for $500 million, though.

For the '677 patent, covering Apple's trade dress registration of the look of the front of the iPhone, the jury found that Samsung did infringe on most devices, but again, not all.
Mm-hmm... okay...

Why is this bad? These are not obscure software patents such as "internet test-taking method." They are brand-new ideas invented by Apple with the iPhone. Let other companies come up with their own original ideas and sell them.

Too bad. Now Samsung will have to get this money back by charging Apple more for components which is reasonable as this fine is considered an integral part of "the cost of business".

1.05BN damages?

CNET is reporting $1.5BN for the Galaxy Tab alone?
