Apple Seeks to Add Samsung Galaxy S4 to U.S. Patent Lawsuit
Just weeks after the launch of Samsung's latest Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone, FOSS Patents reports that Apple is seeking to add the device to a patent lawsuit already underway against Samsung in the United States.
Judge Lucy Koh has already ordered Apple and Samsung to narrow their case, which is expected to go to trial in March 2014. Each side will ultimately be required to limit their cases to ten targeted devices, although the current stage is seeing the companies pare their lists to 22 devices each.
Apple's list of 22 products currently covers a number of Samsung's smartphone and tablet devices, while Samsung's own list includes virtually every device and service offered by Apple, including all iPad and Mac models, all iPhone models dating back to the iPhone 3G, the last three iPod touch generations, 1st and 3rd generation Apple TV models, and even iTunes and iCloud. While the battle between Apple and Samsung has focused mainly on mobile devices until now, Samsung's counterclaims have sought to bring Apple's Mac lineup and services into the dispute by asserting infringement of a patent related to multimedia synchronization across devices.

Well if they would spend more time making better products and less time busting Samsung's balls they might be a bit more productive.
I know, Apple does things incrementally. They're so darn behind though. It's really pathetic. I hope they do a major overhaul on iOS7 instead of a stupid flat design. I'm not really that excited for something so small and mediocre.

Okay... the lawsuits were fun to follow the the first time around but now it's just annoying and ridiculous. It's never going to end as long as both companies keep releasing phones. In a month Samsung will add the iPhone 5S/6 and iPad mini 2 retina and in another few months Apple will add the Galaxy S IV Mini Mini version II and Galaxy Note V Gargantuan.
Less suing more innovating please. Both of you.

This is one of the problems with owning a Samsung Galaxy S4.
The second Apple wins the lawsuit, they will issue self-destruct orders to all Samsung Galaxy S4 phones. You'll be in the middle of a phone call on your S4, oblivious to the court hearings, and *poof* your phone will be gone, up in smoke.
True story, bro.

As much as I want to give the next iPhone a chance again, it's tactics like this that keep me looking elsewhere for my mobile needs. Shame on you Apple. Innovate, don't litigate!
Thanks Steve for all of the awesome technology!

So that the children can grow up happy and have a ton more children in geometric progression, so Samsung and Apple can donate another 10 billion and so on...
