Fact 1. The US patent law is stupid.
Fact 2. Korean companies turned big by reverse engineering American, European and Japanese (which actually are partly copied from the previous two) products, any decent strategic management course will teach you that. Someone had enough of this and also had the means to justify the claim.
Samsung is said to innovate faster than Google, which might be true but they always need a first little "push" from other companies.
From my point of view,
without apple iphone, Samsung dont have any clue how to design they galaxy s1,2,3
When Samsung take some idea from apple, apple ask them to pay for the idea (April 2010 i think), but samsung react with only one word, sue me
when apple really sue them, they sue back with something call patent in the 3g or wifi standard, samsung just like gangster blocking the road say, if u dont let me copy i will sue you and block u using the road.
samsung, a company have reputation on making cheap product that made all japanese out of business
who are not buying they tv,ref,washing machine not because they are cheaper then other brand.
Samsung also a company playing trick with legal, anyone remember, lcd price fixing, samsung made other company pay few billion on the wrong doing (and samsung is one of the largest master mind in Lcd price fixing)
This is the most stupidiest decision by jurors. Patents like these shouldn't be applied.
I am sure Samsung will rise back to their original position in US once again...
Its just a matter of time....
what a joke this whole thing is... these 2 companies must have wasted more than a billion dollars paying useless attorneys for what??? to prove who copied who??? what a waste of human resource when people are getting killed in war and dying of hunger on the other side of the planet!! One thing--, it's absolutely a joke that Apple's design patent on rectangle with round corners stand... and to think that Steve Jobs actually thought it as patentable and for the USPTO to accept such patent, then this group of jurors agree that it is a patent...Don't we all get inspiration from something else?? my bento box is rectangular with round corners~~
[deleted post]sammy is doing same thing in india.... sammy has strong market in asia so SG3 worldwide cost $600 and in india it cost $800 .... bullshit...
if we talk about apple...its OS is soooo simple and easy to use even your kids or grand parents can use it with ease.... none other phone gives this to people after apple and nokia....
so to be safe next time. When it's android, choose SONY. When it's Windows Phone, choose NOKIA.
mel, 27 Aug 2012the fact is the judge is also a applefanboyz/girlz, and use ipad for jadgement. thats the true!my dear friend, its not a judge, its a jury. You mean say all the jury were apple fan and are using ipad for judgement, if yes? that is a great news
suhailx, 27 Aug 2012apple company didnt want grow the busness of any other company like samsung nokia htc sony ec... moreits your thought buddy....HTC is the 2nd company who made capacitive touch phones after apple ( i know touch phones are not new when apple made it ) but Apple never sue HTC. And in thoz days HTC is the only competitor of apple. they haven't sue sony or nokia...but why only samsung.....there are valid reasons dear....see both the phones on top...u ll feel the design is almost same...
Tomsk, 27 Aug 2012So let's ask the question: Was the court case fair, yes or no?yes, the court is fair.
WOW!In a trial in USA, with an AMERICAN judge and an AMERICAN jury have ruled in favour of an AMERICAN company against a Korean one! And the "surprise" is where, exactly??
Joneeep, 27 Aug 2012Comment 1001 : NOKIA is the best. loooooooolso true.
XEROX called urgent board meeting, somebody told them SAMSUNG makes better copies :)
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2012"Now before i get flamed i just want to say that i am indeed an android fan and have been... moreApple produced the same evidence all over the world but all the other judges through the case out. the difference now is that they had home advantage. Samsung was bound to loose from the begining of the trial
Whoa!, 27 Aug 2012Samsung is selling Galaxy Note 10.1 in India for $720, an enormous $221 more than the internat... morewell i guess samsung started to pass the $1billion dollar payment to its costumers.
It seems a new Cold War, or a Cultural Revolution has begun. This time round it happened on the United States. With such immature, inexperience Jurors group which ignorance of thec true historical data, it was purely a dictation verdict to ruled out better & newer technology which it was never invented by United States company called Apple. Remebered, even Apple admitted themself, they used the word "Re-invent" on their product launch events.
With United States with "Hegemonism" approach, I wouldn't be suprise what they next stopping most of the Eastern countries products to sell in US. But don't forget, US still owe most of the Eastern countries lots of money... Maybe it's time for United States to pay back the debt in full amount.
Looks like the damn android costs a lot of chaos in tech world...
Sammy should have takenup HPs WebOS or WP7 seriously.
ANDROID and Tizen sucks for OEMs more than for the consumers...
Xiao Ti, 27 Aug 2012Oh gosh, those Samsung fanboy can't accept that the truth is harsh. Samsung is just a cheap c... moreYou should actually realise that they can design a device with a 4.8" screen not 3.5" and still be lighter. Plasticy maybe? But that helps when it falls from instantly "breaking".
