gilda, 06 Mar 2014Just another reason to never even consider an apple product.The vast majority of those who declare not to "consider" an Apple product are people who yearn after getting one but can not.
I buy devices equally or more expensive than Apple's, since I dislike Apple. Yet it's undeniable Chinese and Korean industry hinge on copying others' ideas, and in this case Apple was 100% on the right side. 930 millions are a significative enough penalty. Hopefully, a second one will follow now.
Too bad European Union isn't able to claim rightful respect for their patents and products like the USA.
US Product = US Court = Verdict is USA.
Your argument is invalid.
They should explain what Samsung infringed exactly ... curved edges or color display ?
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2014All they have to do is increase the price of the A8 or A9 they will manufacture for Apple and ... moreRead the news uneducated person samsung's out of the race already for manufacturing the a8 chipset. Samsung is apparently has been facing production issues with the 20nm manufacturing process which the a8 chips supposed to use.
Apple is going down with the help of court senate or without it. Market share is falling rapidly. I agree on competition, but this is too much. Imagine this in car industry, we could not buy a car with a steering wheel.
Patents are just a big money game between government and sides. The system gets its power from the public, pretending it's fair. No one should be able to talk about damages and beat you if you make a device with "flat black surface". This is a big dirty game.
Samsung to pay Apple $930million. Viewing from another angle, who do they get their revenge on? The customers. They produce cheap phones with inferior materials and sell at sky rocket high prices. SMH...
Hey, 06 Mar 2014I don't understand this, first, I'm not sure I even agree about the fine in the first place. ... morePossibly the fee includes the total recovery for the products already on sale. Sometimes the results of a ban is harder to estimate.
Disapointed, 06 Mar 2014Is this the USA Justice?!?!?! Shame on you!!! Is apple to sue all other phones makers for the ... moreBut is copying from another existing material illegal? Do you even know that the samsung's first galaxy s series UI is a copy from the first iphone UI? Second, the drop down menu that was design by apple. Had also been copied by samsung. Third. the contents found in the first s series are also copies even if their names, logo's and designs don't even differ.
Hey guys! Before you all condemn apple for the lawsuit concerning patent issues for the sake of stopping others from `selling chocolate cakes` , you guys should really study about patent/copyrights/intellectual properties properly..
Even apple has been sued many times for copyright issues but they solve the matter by paying the compensation and even either buy or pay the royalty ethically... Just think for a second if Apple can sue samsung for making phones like them, then they should absolutely also sue Sony, Htc, Lg and others also for the same thing.. but it turns out most of the time only Samsung was sued and not others, why ?
Simple... because only Samsung did violate apple's copyrights while the rest did their best to not make the same mistake... Nobody can stop others from making chocolate cakes but it doesn't mean they can copy bluntly the recipes and it's image and then sell almost the same one without paying any royalty.
rajesh810222, 06 Mar 2014thats how apple earns......poor brand apple......apple can never beat Samsung!!!!!!But apple had already defeated samsung in terms of app quantity. You'll find a lot of good apps in the appstore and also all the latest devices of apple are running at 64 bit. Where samsung shares the same fate as the other android devices where the app is very limited. Not even a 64 bit devices even with their s5 which has a 64 bit processor yet is a 32 bit smartphone. If you mention about screen size. Wait till apple releases a new iphone series.
Is this the USA Justice?!?!?! Shame on you!!! Is apple to sue all other phones makers for the same right infringements and reasons? Apple should close shop and earn their wages by suing everyone using the USA Justice as their Mummy!!!!!
Apple has lost its shine and getting more rotten day by day!!!!
More revenue from court cases than actual sales... Food for thought...

Samsung finally get what they deserve for being such a big copycat
