in regards to this. Who would care what happens with apple and Samsung other then the companies CEO. everyone copy each other at the end of the day the devices are made in china somewhere.
food for thought. How long has apple been making phones? and how long has samsung??

Until Samsung properly responds to the charges and the whole rawl is over...the damage has already been done! With a cloud of suspicion over it's head, Samsung will lose profits "thanks" to this bad publicity! As I've said this isn't yet all out war..Apple isjust trying to outmanouveur it's main rival! This case will certainly end in a gentlemann's agreement! And...last but not list...no innovation??? That is eigher superficial thinking...or....if I were condescendent I would call it in stronger terms...what do you call the first released 12 megapixel phone,the first dual-core phone, amoled and superamoled technology??? Please before posting carefully consider your arguments in regard to the subject in hand..if you're looking at reality through a venetian mirror...the reality is disported...that's simmilar with blindness...
So can someone tell me what unfair competition would be considered??
Apple claims against Samsung.
Says the company who falsely advertises their bull crap as being the best in the world or as the starters of it all! That is unfair competition! Using their big name to make such blatant false adds on tv. Any other company would've been facing law suits and Apple should've too.
What's so unfair? That the Samsung Galaxy S line blows away Icrap and leaves it in the dust and is the first line to do it this badly?
And Samsung does not just make the camera for the Iphone. It makes their cpu's(look it up in the link below), the A4 and A5, and It was a Samsung cpu in the others, They also design ssd hard drives nd dram for mac books and what not.

Man, I have a lot of letters to write.
it all comes down to software build... not hardware... both can do basic things thats good enough for me...
You have got to be joking Mr Apple. There is no way I wud buy your phone, ro anything else, with your licked in system.
I think the Samsung looks a lot better than your "Iphone", and is better quality with more features.
You starve the features just to keep the fools coming and buying your next update!!!
Sorry won't catch me
What's the big deal anyway. A big company is suing another big company. That's it. So many Android fans butthurt by this news its unbelievable.
By the way, Apple in a way, just lost a battle with Nokia on some patent issues as well. You don't see chaos in the streets, iPhone fans going on rampage.
This isn't the first, and believe me it won;t be the last of a phone company suing another. There will be plenty more.
All I want is for them to keep making great phones, for me to enjoy. Yeay!

Even if you are right, and Apple is suing just to generate publicity to reduce Samsung's sales, as you say, you still need a solid case, otherwise you won't even reach the settlement part, as the case will be thrown out.
I already said that Apple may or may not win, but read the following analysis, and you will at least see why Apple has chosen to pursue a certain course of action.
That was my diplomatic answer. Now my frank opinion: One would have to be totally blind to not see how Samsung loves ripping off designs, whether partial or completely. They make great phones, and are a great company. But ORIGINAL is not one word I would associate with them.
Sun, 28 Jun 2011Judging from your perspective LG should have sued Apple for stealing Prada's design!
Galaxy a... morebut you forget the iOS looks nothing like the lg system on the prada
are you telling me that u dont think that samsung took any styling for the GS1 from apple? i can understand maybe the shape of the phone but also the menu system (even the phone icons are identiacal) to even the box.
i mean samsung make some amazing devices i would expect them to not copy some1 else design so blatantly
This is a ridiculous lawsuit. This is like saying that car companies should start suing each other because they all have 4 wheels. Maybe Apple will start suing other phone companies for making their phones rectangular.

Galaxy and Iphone resemble each other but they are not identical!
Look and feel? Funny....I haven't felt in Galaxy nothing simmilar to iOS restrictions and desire of control!
This is all about business....i'm not saying that Samsung are angels....but the arguments of Apple trully are fible....and this lawsuit is all about striking a competitor who is breething down your neck, diminishing your profits and someday even surpass you!

Companies have been suing each
other for a long time to have a stronger position at the negociating tabble! But most of the legal disputes have ended in settelments behind closed doors!
Apple cited so many patent claims in order to generate as much publicity as it can!
ALL of those claims can be dropped as easyly as they were filled im case of a settelment!
Apple's wants to cast a shadow of doubt over Samsung and hurt the Galaxy2 selles numbers as well as keeping the public's interest alive on the upcoming launch of Iphone5!
You should understand that it's all about business,and some actions even if they seem dramatical at first glimpse they are nothing more then control punches......or in simple words for you.....business as usual!
[deleted post]but its not just about the design its about all the patent infringements and lets face it gs1 is practically carbon copy of the 3gs
