OMG, that's the way Apple increase their own revenues. Based in hearsay Apple financial team has clearly identified how hard they've tried to increase company's income. Apple needs more money all out. Suing and charging Samsung could make Apple stands longer in smartphone competition.
no reason for me to boycott apple.
never bought anything from apple before, and after all this shit never ever will..
adam and eve got fooled, it ain't happening a second time ;)

History has proved that brute force has never lasted. If I was Samsung now, I would make a careful check on these patents, make a new device not infringing any of those, and market it as the |patent-free phone| at a price lower than iphuck 5. No mention of Apple, of course, but people would know. Thumbs down for Apple!
When will the American public ever wake up?? The only winner here is Apple ,the consumers only benefit will be higher prices and less choice.America is the only country in the world who up onto reasantly banned 4 cylinder diesel engines in cars ,now I wonder why??it's economical, the CO2 emissions are the lowest O wait they did'nt desighn it:-( :-( Idiots there propaganda of "Buy American" is shooting there public in the foot
TruthSeekr, 28 Aug 2012Really, you get shivers when customers abuse your employees? Dude, I work for an airline co... moreso true.. when i jailbroke my iphone 4s which essentially makes it an open source (like android).. if you dont know what ur doing and even if you do it can become twice as glitchy and problematic as any android ive ever used.
and neither of them look like the iphone
other than rounded borders, patent that should be invalid anyway =.=
[deleted post]Aw come on, not the "patented geometric shapes" argument again..
Look at the Sony NXT series, look at the XPERIA Arc, or Ray. Look at the Nokia Lumia, or Motorola RAZR.
There are endless possibilities for designing rectangular phones - just because Samsung (and HTC) like to stick to rounded rectangles don't make them the only way to design phones.
But yes I agree, it is a loss for the customer - the US customer; which luckily I'm not :-)

Dude, I work for an airline company and our people get abused everytime the computer glitches.
Heck, every single service industry suffers from the problem of The Abusive Customer.
Its not something to blame android for!

I hope you have find a way to change batteries on your Apple products? Isn't it a bummer that when your battery goes kapput your iPhone becomes useless? Only option left is to go buy another iPhone? Either your pockets are full of bucks or they are a lot "s#$t for brain" out there? Buying a product programmed to fail in +/-18 months. What a bummer...

Honestly, I find Apple pathetic. It's because of Samsung and their brilliant displays and chipsets that helped them create the iPhones and iPads you see today. It's because of Samsung and other smartphone manufacturers that they actually considered putting in newer technologies and loosening up a few barriers they've crippled their fanboys into. Try using an iPhone and a Galaxy S III or Note, or any other high end Android device for that matter, and compare them. The latter are in a league of their own.
just imagine how much money they used in that whole agenda, samsung and apple both, then imagine how much it could have helped poor people instead. Apple may have won now, but imagine the backlash of this to them, especially the fact that apple once utilized ideas of other people and patented them as if it was their own...
