Oh wow

All the jurors were probably employed by Apple.



Do you honestly believe that?

I wouldn't go that far, but it's not out of the question that some of them may have known people employed by Apple, or simply feel a sense of connection to the company due to it having been a shaping force in the area for the last 35 years.

Anyway, I definitely see how some elements of TouchWiz look like they were copied from iOS, but damn, my call button on my old ass Nokia Brick phone from ten years ago was a green call button. The whole shape thing is pretty ridiculous too. If you look at an iPhone sitting next to a Galaxy S phone in real life, they look nothing alike.

Pretty shitty lawsuit. I honestly don't see how either company benefits from claiming ownership of these very common features. People who don't like Apple wouldn't buy iPhones in the first place and vice versa, so it's not like a huge loss of profit. Shitty move on Apple's part, considering they "stole" Xerox's idea of a GUI mouse oriented interface. This is good news for Microsoft though.

Still love my Apple nonetheless, so suck it Kensai.

Considering how insanely r3b3l Kensai is for not being a sheeple by being against Apple, probably.

Exactly this. Considering they probably wouldn't be in business had Steve Jobs never "borrowed" the idea of using a GUI from Xerox, you'd think they'd be a little more relaxed on this kind of thing. But no, they have to keep acting like they shit innovation and piss visionary.
And while we're on the subject, this is an interesting read: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appl...puter#section_1

Apple makes some good products, but I'll never buy one because of the way the company operates. They pretend to be the last great innovators, but their hands are just as dirty as the next guy.

They do make some good products; I love my 2009 iPod nano which still works as if it were brand new. But that company is a ****ing travesty!

Apples tactic of "oh shit the competition is better than us now, lets sue them into oblivion" is still running strong I see.

Apple should try suing one of those much more blatantly copycat Chinese companies next time. Let's see where that gets them.

Apple, however, said it applauded the court "for finding Samsung's behaviour wilful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn't right".


Yeah, Apple never stole anything ever.

Fuck Apple, seriously.

1. Apple gets more money
2. Some people at Apple may get raises and have more to spend.
3. ??????
4. Profit!!!

Ok, so #3 may be Juror #whatever, or their spouse, owns a store that Apple people shop at.

So, in a way, Apple bought the jury.

In British English, a billion is equivalent to a million million, while in American English it has always equated to a thousand million, so a British billion is far bigger than an American Billion.

That said, British English has now adopted the American figure as a legal definition, so the number would have the same definition, but, £1 currently equals US $ 1.5805, roughly one and a half dollars, so a British '1 billion pounds' is currently worth more that an American '1 billion dollars', by roughly half again.
