I don't look more on Apple products, my support give to Samsung.
Sorry for company which think that he can patent circle !
O.k Apple changed the Smartphone Market with the iPhone,but Apple seem to act like Babies when someone produces something that Looks or Preforms like the iPhone,they love Courts but why don"t we have a Apple Tennis player as there are loads of Courts about,Samsung should now stop supplying Apple with an Parts or Components an make the struggle in producing any future phone,how many companies nowdays produce something an the others copy it,we would be spending more times in courts because of how Apple are reacting like Babies all the Time
All cars are rectangular with 4 wheels and steering, all cigarettes are long rounded covered in white paper sheets, all tv's are rectangular and has picture in front....so many ways companies can make money. Just go for it and bring the justice system down instead of spending time for the poor needy. Really sad.
apple will prevail, they are the true innovator & creating unique design- ios6 will be a massive update that separates itself to previous os & other os's.
Cyclist4Christ, 25 Aug 2012Samsung would've done the same to Apple if Apple copied them.. but a little birdie told me tha... moreNokia never took thing to full court what they did is license their patents to almost every phone manufacturer. From what has been known Nokia own more then 50% of all mobile patents but they don't sue others they license

There are lots of iPhone copycats out there. Samsung is one. But why battle them??? Because they're a BIG threat. Samsung phones sell a lot totally. They can take down Apple if Apple doesn't make a step to defend. How about suing MiPhone.. Oh wait it's only in China. How about those cheap iphone copies? Still no because they don't sell well and not even popular. Apple is just a piece of scared shit company. They can't battle the competition face to face.
I am Android user but I also think that Samsung home screen and icon style does copy iPhone design. This is lesson for Samsung and others Android manufacturers to just simply use Google stock things which are mostly smoother and more eye catchy compared to their customization.
The jury took only 2 hours to reach a conclusion and exited the courtroom throught a back door without talking to the press..when you are making such an important decision that's gonna cost someone 1 bn dollars and lose of image you should publicly explain the reasons behind your decision..I wonder what were the criterias in jury selection..was apple involved in selecting them? In a multi-billion lawsuit you never know..
I think Samsung have the best comment for Apple product : "fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices" . from the marketshare we can conclude that Samsung is the winner . I'm so sorry, Apple
This court verdict reminds me the ruling of patenting genetically engineered microorganisms by Supreme Court way back in 1980.
I guess the person who is most happy at this moment is Stephen Elop, for him the timing of the verdict is perfect, just before the launch of WP8

Samsung would've done the same to Apple if Apple copied them.. but a little birdie told me that there's a rumor that Samsung and Apple copied a bit of Nokia in the past.... If I was Samsung I would stick to their Wave phones and work on the Bada OS.
Sorry Sammy Samsung, no world take over for you, boo hoo.
Nokia Lumia Pureview here I come.
And stil after all this time no one realizes that the winners in this ongoing and quite boring game are... Samsung and Apple! Wut... You realy didnt know that all this time both companies were getting masses and masses of worldwide publicity!!
What I wouldnt give to be at the party they are throwing together at this moment. Tim Cook and Kwon Oh Hyun are probably burning hundred dollar bills to lite their cigares, laughing in up. Side by side scheming about yet another diabolical plan to increase sales and publicity.
I say: Well done gentlemen, you have successfully fooled the world.

Apple are now the richest company ever in US history and you say they have to turn to court cos they are losing to Samsung? i don't like iPhones but we'll see exactly whos losing when the next iPhone comes out, the sales will surpass the SIII in the first week.
i invented a drawing of a square inside a circle and patented it..so any one has something look remotely similar with such shape needs to pay me...
right.. i guess cultures should race to proof who invented the wheel and get loyalties for every car n bike sold...
Samsung is just not guilty of copying per se'. But guilty to bring down Apple with intent.
