Am wondering why Apple is not being sued by copying LG Prada ??

Or Y it's not being sued by copying Android notification system in iOS 5 ??

US judges either did not see which Pandora box they opened or they been all bribed heavily.

If some one invented the door handle of a car and how it opens, the rest of the world's car manufacturers should not include the car door in a car even ?? This is how Apple patents worked which is ridiculous and unacceptable.

When the judges were giving there verdict they should have thought which Pandora box they are opening.

Now every car manufacturer every cake manufacturer and every tech manufacturers start suing each other and consumer just watch with open mouths that is it really happening.

Grow up people. It's not the way.

only apple can do for now is get rid of anything that treatens them. but still there is justice. we pray that the minds of misguided US judges will be enlightened. truly, samsung didn't infringed apple's product. samsung just made an awesome supergadget that has been loved by most.. we know that apple's shares in sales have been declining even in their homeland.. well, apple may compete but can never surpass now but still they have more more and a US-based company. i hope they won't get spoiled with it. what we need is to be just and fair. thank you samsung for making super gadget like my galaxy note, what a great features it has. we need gadgets with great features and socially in.

At least we can rely on the honesty and integrity of courts around the world. Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, UK etc all laugh at Apples pathetic claims. Are you watching, listening and learning America?

It's almost as if we need an international court to deal with these kind of cases. I find it unfair that certain regions can have one set of smartphones available and others can't. Plus this would cut down all the multiple lawsuits in different countries.

as expected. Samsung is one of the world's famous and renowned mobile company. Apple is just afraid that android producing company like samsung will reign into the whole mobile industry. Samsung keeps on making promising platforms, designs, services, qualities that will address to the needs of users to attain an enjoyable yet affordable gadgets like samsung products. just ban the samsung products in US and let's see if apple's product will increase on demand. For I know, many people living in the US prefer other mobile brand, specially samsung than apple's iphone products. this case sucks!

for what all patents does apple claim against samsung... touchwiz the launcher is identical to their buggy launcher or the home screen, well apple does not have any home screen as it feels all the same... cant apple find that samsungs home screen is customizable with lot of functionality.. thz z wrong both r way different in launching apps or icon arrangements still apple sued them... thz reason was pointless that apple claiming samsung voilate their patent law also making a black rectangular shaped phone with rounded corners should not be patented, this is extrmely shameful patent right coz other companies if wont make bkack phones tgen who will buy phones wid other cokours as nost of smartphones r black coloured wid rectangular shape n rounded corners... apple z seriously a mad company... they r patenting everything n claiming that its theirs... i seriously didnt like apples dictatorship... yeah its dictatorship only... even i hate patent system after sum years there will be patent with tge type or colour of cloths u r wearing or which car u driving or so on... looks a cheap tactics for business
