Maybe you should tell Apple to lower the intensity of their lawsuits against Samsung. We'd have less litigation news about it.

Of course I wouldn't buy it. It's a piece of crap inside. But that's besides the point. I think that it's not fair Samsung copying design from Apple. If you want to compete, come up with something better.

I'm guessing the judge didn't want to seem like a dumbass with the whole "not as cool" comment. It was a stupid reasoning when he said it and its stupid now.
It was factually inaccurate because they claimed to have won legal rulings on the same issue of the Ipad design in the USA and Germany. Neither was true.

If I were Apple, I would pay in pennies.

I'm looking forward to the day that Apple will no longer be a customer of Samsung. That would be a HUGE loss for Samsung.

Maybe that intensity will start Samsung on a path to creating something completely new that blows the market away and stop with the copying.

So are you giving up your Apple products with Samsung parts?

What makes Samsung's devices crap inside? Isn't Apple using Samsung parts. Are Apple products crap inside?

Do you realize how conflicted you are?

What copying ? Except for that verdict that's being contested in the states because of the foreman not understanding prior art rules or following jury instruction, they haven't been found guilty of any copying yet.

Can we go a day where someone doesn't offensively use the word "tard." Surely you can find a more appropriate word to use.

In general I'd agree, especially with the tit for tat news. But this bit was actually kind of nice to see. I was extremely annoyed to see Apple acting like a toddler with its compliance (or lack thereof) to the court's orders, so I am glad to see the court threw it back at them.

I don't think anyone can deny that Samsung is guilty of copying Apple far too closely, regardless of whether or not a court finds that it is infringing.

Can you point to other decisions besides the California verdict ? If not, maybe my post was more factual than you'd like. I'll ignore the racism for now.

As long as we can agree that Apple also copies and draws inspiration from elsewhere too and thus are pretty much being the pot calling the kettle black in this case.

If it's not infringing, then nothing wrong was done.

Of course Apple is inspired from others. No one is saying being inspired is wrong. What Samsung did was not being inspired.

I hope you don't truly believe that.

That's a retort to a logical discussion point? So nothing really to add?

i think there are clearly people who don't think Samsung copied seeing as other than in the US - they haven't been found guilty. So using "anyone" is hyperbolic.

Apple disagreed with the decision, and playfully pointed out the Judges own words. He took offense and pitched a tantrum, by ordering to pay Samsung, as punishment for mocking his short sighted decision.
Sadly true, but that's to be expected when you thumb your nose at a belligerent old man who takes great issue with anyone challenging their authority, particularly global corporations.

I think that it's pretty darn clear that Samsung copied Apple. What's up for debate is whether or not it's enough for the courts to consider it infringing.

Are you saying that nothing Samsung does (in the cell world) is not inspired? And that nothing Samsung does is original or their own?

Because I'd argue that.

Check Judge Robin Jacob's investment holdings

I wonder if Judge Robin Jacob holds Samsung stocks or has special feelings toward to Samsung. He must have!

I've read the original Apple statement and could not see any lies. So, what is this lie the judge is talking about?

Samsung has a strong UK politic lobby, they were one of the main Olympic sponsors. No surprise that Samsung is treated better than Apple in court, politics/business as usual.

Chump change for apple - seeing as how they just paid 20 million for a clock.

Maybe now they will redirect their efforts & financial resources into innovation instead of litigation.
