"Samsung’s behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right", Apple would not even exist if it were not for Apple stealing other companies ideas... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW0DUg63lqU&feature=youtube_gdata_player
there are lots of phones which are rectangular and curve on corners... does that mean all of those phone copied apple's??? Money Money Money . . . a very sad day
You have thousands of patent and I'm sure that Samsuck has stolen some of them ...
Just check it and win a battle against them.
Quote from Apple Statement:
"At Apple, we value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth"
They now owe me one new keyboard for spitting coffee all over mine after semi choking.
All i repeat ALL phones share common things, everything from keypads to green accept/make call and red end call buttons.
I was using rectangular devices in the 90's (yes folks i AM that old)and every device has had a familiar 'feel' to it. strange as it may be but even cars etc all share similarities, just look at the markings on light controls and for wipers,heaters etc etc, and when the car moves it has a familiar 'feel' to it too, maybe it is something to do with rounds wheels (which i am waiting for Apple to patent)
I just feel sorry for the consumer in all this. Lawyers and companies have got richer while we now get poorer as companies probably increase prices to make up for all this court action.
Funny: From Samsung's own statement:
" It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation..."
"Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer."
this case will take samsung more rather than cash, its prestige, its value, and its image, now, customer will question why i must buy a stolen product and will consider when they intend to buy a samsung's product, poor samsung and delight apple.
on final apple is looser, you cant stop against streams, you must move with it, in other industries American can Not stand against Chinese product, cell phone industries is not out of law, apple loose markets in 3 to 5 years and after that have a sales like abandoned luxurious phone maker Vertu.
In the first place, how can one contest and lose in an American court when the brand is American?
This is the new trend for US to regain their supremacy. They make all big companies pay their revenues in form of fine. What a shameful act!
How about the display of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S which is manufactured by either Samsung or LG Display. They can sue Apple for using their screens and patenting it as their very own "Retina Display".
Truth be told
The ones who really lost are the consumers
And apple just dug a hole for themselves even if they won
apple is afraid of samsung being on top,there are other phone company makin iphone look alike-eg check china-they are makin clone phones of all brand with dual,triple and quad sim.will apple go and sue them too-NOOOO.they just want to take out the competition(samsung)such a cheap way of doin it-the way to go is android.
No one wants to sue Nokia since they had the Symbian OS long before iOS or android
Both ios and android took ideas from Symbian
Yea its the truth
