Actually, it was the judge who made those assertions.

See the kicker here is that Judge was the one who said that, not Apple.

in the statement, there isn't even a logo of apple, a menu or something... you're stuck on that page and your only way out is your browser's navigation.
Grow up.

Apple will never see any of that $1bn.

Yet again, the US is the only place where Apple is actually winning anything. Throughout the rest of the world all cases are in favour of Samsung or over ruled on appeal.

There's a difference between thinking you've won with rhetoric and the way someone perceives the attitude of a company.
Right and apple will win with a lot of free publicity that squarely puts them with a superior product to Samsung.

You realize 95% of the people will take in a judge said apple was cooler than Samsung. That will be the perception. It is not bad for apple in any way that counts.

I mean sure people who hate apple but spend a lot of free time on apple discussion sites will perceive it badly just as they would perceive apple curing cancer poorly. Nobody else will though.

What is funny is people complain apple has become too big business like and uptight and they do something here very much in line with the attitude and history of the company and people still complain.

I just hope Microsoft gains some traction with their devices because they showed the world being a bad rip off artist who creates a much less cool product is not the only way to go in the mobile device space.

Haha, funny. But I'm more surprised that the judge provided them with these personal opinions in court than Apple re-using them on their site when appropriate.

Contrary to what it looks like at times, when large amounts of stock get 'dumped', the Stock market is NOT a place for 'nervous nellies'. I would have no qualms about buying AAPL stock at todays price of $609.54.

Thank me after January's earings call.

So you're suggesting the rest of the world is anti-American?

I think you need to grow up and get your facts right.

Unless Germany and a plethora of other countries are also in America?

Google stole iOS and Samsung copied Apples designs, boxing, cables, advertising and accessories.

Define "poor". Because fundamentally, the numbers were incredible especially before a production wind down before fourth gen iPad. Only to made up perverse voices in ones head (analysts) can that be considered an upset.

This is rather childish and immature, and quite manipulative, but I guess Apple has the legal right to produce such statement.

Android Tablet market share hit 25% and Apples share is down to 56%. Didnt this happen to iPhone in the same way?

Microsoft has just launched Surface and im betting 2nd generation hardware will be a serious problem for Apple. Especially when Windows 8 Apps increase.

Share prices are forward looking and it seems that Apple is peaking and the competitors becoming better. Samsung already is the top smartphone manufacturer. Tablets are catching up.

Apples new iPad mini is just an expensive "me too" and shares dropped on the disappointment of that too.

Retina Macbook 13" offers zero value for its price and doesnt even have a GPU and overpriced SSD's and no way to upgrade.

So things are really looking up for Apple! hence the $100 drop in share price in 1 week.

You get your facts right chap, many of the decisions in other countries have been overruled on appeal. Plus, a "plethora"? Name three.

A Stupid/childish Trial by Samsung led to a stupid/childish ruling by a Judge which resulted in a stupid/childish response by Apple.

*edit* Just checked - was 89 and 694...

not boasting here jut very lucky.. Sold my flat just before market tanked and couldn't find a new place so just rented and thought I'd take a punt with some of my equity. Knew the iPhone was only going to sell more and then the iPad and it went mental.

I just have to wonder what they can do next to top it! Going to have to be a Proper Television home hub - but they are going to be expensive devices.

I suspect they are working on the next gen OSX with full touch capability - perhaps other input methods... just not in this Win8 half arsed way I hope.

I know that, but it was Apple who chose to include the words. It sounds like sour grapes is all. Apple sometimes needs to just grow up and accept that they lost this one.
