apple and samsung design of certain cells look quite similar, sometimes.
but to me, apple having the exclusivity of this design is ridiculous.
square phone, with square screen rounded by a black rectangular bezel, with square boxes in the screen ... is the most and first design idea humans will develop and prefer.
will a us jury ban people breathing oxygen because apple may patent the idea that 'apple employees breath oxygen"?
if apple sued samsung for a software idea or discovery, i would support apple.
but suing a company for nothing but what is most superficial/visual, most common, most direct and most natural to humans (so square idea) is ridiculous.
definitely, here the square design patent issue is just an alibi to build the case for artificial market domination.
AnonD-58567, 25 Aug 2012If you say samsung copied apple then what about mac ui which is copied from xerox ui...... ev... moreXerox Parc gave him full access to their technology,he stole nothing,what he did see was great ideas that werent being used well and improved on them,the mouse being one. So get it right before u start crying!!
Wind, 25 Aug 2012Apple is talking bullshit, as always... The "making the best products in the world"... moreBest solution in 2007. Great work from Steve and Apple. But you can't always stay at the top...
lol, 25 Aug 2012i gurantee one thing in 10yrs iphones wont exist samsung will ...and this comment goes perfectly with your username.
AnonD-1082, 25 Aug 2012Samsung also lost on the Multi-touch patents! I'm so happy. Now Apple will not settle and h... moreLol who had the pull-down notification centre feature first? Who had the PC-Free setup first? Who had widgets first? I think Apple did stole some features from Google too.
Boy,the verdict is normal. It was about time. Bring judges from Mars, then Samsung pay them trillions of dollars, still Apple gonna win it, why? Because it's simple, Shamesung copied Apple and that's it.
Hell yea, I'm so happy.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2012It's time for Apple to look else where for their parts. Stop buying from SamsungI think they are going to Japan now. Would rather see it in America thou'; think about how much job they could create!
AnonD-60779, 25 Aug 2012slrsly ... samsung manufactures apple's chips , so they can always gain the money back by char... moreNot going happen. Bad, business. I just simply like the fact that Apple relies on others. I think others should offer lower range technologies. Killing fast is boring; need to slow it down. More fun!
the one who got power rules the world. But you need also remember- dog also bark on lion in his own house. Same with Apple telk them come and fight in human court. Every single soul is dirty, and carry dirt of sin. So both compantpy did something wrong. But again US things as they are powerful than GOD and nature but they are the most unfortunate people and i pity on them. For samsung one msg forgive them as we fogive all tracepasses againts us.
First, I use Ipad and samsung google phone. And I'm not korean nor american. Why apple sue samsung, not google? Because samsung is not american company.
And most of the american people own apple shares. So they absolutely want apple to win. Its already geopolitical. If the trial at south korea, samsung would be win, absolutely.
If they want fair trial, they should go to south east asia, or europe.
lol, 25 Aug 2012i gurantee one thing in 10yrs iphones wont exist samsung will Big call. Ill say they'll still be around. To big to go down.
slrsly ... samsung manufactures apple's chips , so they can always gain the money back by charging a higher price ...
ronak, 25 Aug 2012We are grateful to the jury for their service and for investing the time to listen to our stor... moreI'm greatful that you will be buying only Apple's products for the rest of your life. Because buying others will means you have betrayed us/them. Samsung, HTC, LG etc will never satisfy you like Apple.
Now It's impossible for samsung to overcome from that. It's afterall said na Every thing fare in love & war.
I think this is a sad day. Not because of being Pro Android, or against Apple, but because it could greatly limit the choice consumers have. Something needs to be done about the Patent laws. To allow a patent for a rectangular device with rounded edges and flat screen is a joke. Health and safety wouldnt allow sharp edges so of course everyone is going to need to use that design. I dont think anyone has bought a Samsung Galaxy, thinking it was an iPhone so what a stupid argument to make. Its like Ford patenting a vehicle with four wheels and four doors. What would happen to the car industry if that happened. For me it has only soured any thoughts I once had for Apple and its products. Let the consumers decide which is best, not the courts!!!!!
Apple is the shitest company in the world, they are going downward from beginning of 2012..........Samsung dont worry we are always with u.............
lol what?, 25 Aug 2012Apple and Samsung both are copiers and cheaters. The only difference is Apple does it with sty... moreVery true. This applies in reverse as well. If others (Sam, Son, LG etc) came up with it first and with Great styles... they may sue Apple as well. Or would they be more tolerance and accept the fact that society need competitions??? Just like motor vehicles and electronics. Maybe you are right, the company who creates it should gain ALL the benefits and monopolised the world.
