Can't believe all the congratulatory posts. Apple is not only being childish here, but they are consistantly trying to subvert the court of law in a place where they do business. If Samsung were doing something similar, would there be all this back patting?

To me, Apple's use of loopholes and their general dishonesty in this instance is reshaping how I feel about some of their absurd patent claims, tax avoidance practices, and use of hard labor.

This is business. They don't agree with the decision, don't want to waste very valuable home page space on it, and don't want to comply with the order any more than is absolutely necessary. It's about money, not "maturity."

- Australia
- India
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- Singapore

Although it may be funny, if Apple continues to piss that Judge off he could stop playing nice. Where they placed it is legit but we all know what Apple is doing.

Here you go:

Apple.com
Thumb resize.

Apple.co.uk
Thumb resize.

Barely any difference, but the UK site definitely resizes the images, and aligns the four images/links along the bottom so you can't see anything underneath them without scrolling.

If it is legit then there is nothing Apple should worry about.

Well the judge ruled on something for being "not as cool" this is not the sanest judge. Apple already got reprimanded by him for their first "apology" and now this? I sure as hell wouldn't be acting like a baby and trying to circumvent orders in front of volatile judge in a country that AFAIK has no limitations on contempt charges.

Also apples a big baby, it's kinda funny and sad how many people are like "yay apple" over this.

Ridiculous noob tech bloggers over there at TNW just looking for a reason. That "code" has been there for a long time, it has nothing to do with the ruling or the apology. It's called responsive web design; how would you like it if you landed on a page with an image twice the size of your screen - you wouldn't.

Try this: start with a windowed screen (not full screen). Go to apple.co.uk. Drag the bottom of the window down, and note what happens to the iPad Mini ad (it gets bigger). Then do the same thing on apple.com.

I found the court order to be childish. I don't think forcing people to scroll to see this disclaimer is childish at all. I would've done the same thing.

Did you read the ruling? The ruling is ridiculous of course Apple is responding in kind.

What do you mean man up? They don't have to do something they don't have to. This ISN'T high school.

Basically it is like a responsive website.

The main US website is static. You enlarge the browser larger than the size of the fixed website and you can see the entire website top to bottom.

On the UK website, the images and website respond to the size of the browser. You can enlarge it as much as you want and the image stretches filling the browser so you do not quite see the bottom of the website.

Really sad.
Apple isn't "becoming" anything. It has always loved to mess with lawyers.

The most humorous example is when Carl Sagan sued Apple for using his name as a codename. Apple changed it to BHA (butthead astronomer.) Sagan lost but Apple changed it to LAW (lawyers are wimps.)

No, the screen size doesn't matter. It's responsive, so the size is going to change no matter what in order to cause that statement to stay below the fold of the page.

Well, yeah.

I wouldn't expect Samsung to try and highlight something embarrassing about themselves. Or any company, really.

Which companies do you think would do this any differently?

For an arrow down, suggest Apple are behaving like overgrown schoolchildren; for an arrow up, suggest they might be applying a modicum of much-deserved corporate wit.

This is a lesson: the risk of being all litigious all the time is an Arial apology.

Keep it up and you might get Batang.
