    So lets make sure I am hearing everyone correctly. Apple sues Samsung, Apple wins the court battle and is awarded a $#@! ton of money. You guys are mad because Apple has a lot of money already and should have just let Samsung slide....... Samsung was clearly in the wrong as even the court system has found them guilty. Not sure why everyone is mad at Apple lol.

    Damn you Apple for sticking it to your competition!

    Eh.. See, I find this ruling not favorable for competition in the slightest. When I was reviewing the case and reading the 'blow by blows' by Samsung\Apple, I came out of it feeling that Apple was trying to enforce a 'patent' that was nebulous at best. Samsung made some solid points about the whole iPhone concept in and of itself being unoriginal historically if you look at past devices.

    All very 'iPhone' like in retrospect. But somehow Apple "invented this image all by itself and it was theirs". They certainly made it popular, but I'm not so sure the proof is on their side of the aisle when it comes to originality.

    I'm taking ALL YOU $#@!ING $#@!ES to court. Your sigs are all rectangular and are a clear rip off of my sigs shape. If you want to settle out of court, 1,000 SP.

    Ghost Rayne has a point.

    And then there's this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_C...ft_Corporation

    Suing Microsoft because they had the nerve of trying to use a GUI (Graphical User Interface). Even though Apple didn't invent the GUI.

    This whole thing is bat$#@! insane. Samsung proved that there was technology out well before the iPhone that was exceedingly similar- yet somehow Apple gets a free pass to basically rip this off and run but if anybody draws inspiration (yea, I said it. Inspiration.) from their products.. Well then all hell is going to break lose.

    This is absurd, pure and simple. I implore you to actually read up on the arguments and illustrations provided by each side Lethal.

    I mean basically the reason Samsung lost was some internal memo or email where they specifically referenced the iPhone and aspects of it they wanted to incorporate into future designs.

    Is this 'stealing'? Was apple 'stealing' from the guy who originally made the zoom and swoosh? Or the form factor for the iPhone?

    Hell look at the automobile industry or the fashion industry and tell me with a straight face that they don't studiously analyze their competitions products to better their own.

    It'd be one thing if Samsung like took the blueprints for the motherboard or something and literally made their own version with "samsung" plastered on it. But we're talking about $#@! like the shape of the phone and the arrangement of icons.

    Aesthetic stuff.

    Meh... I've liked my iPhone since ditching the Samsung Fascinate, AND when I had the S3.

    lol i wasn't aware Samsung and Apple were the only two companies in the mobile phone space

    personally, i rock this bad boy to make calls:


    i should also add, Apple might be the most profitable business in the world, but they are by no means the largest. that title goes to Samsung.
    way to hate on the little guy! clearly we should all quiver at the sight of large corporations flexing their muscles.
    as seen above i dont swing toward either camp, but kinda glad apple won. Samsung tend to blatantly 'copy' other companies.

    ps, i rocked the D900 for YEARS and is by far the most innovative thing, in recent memory, that samsung has done. i loved that phone!

    The Xperia S, I'm rockin that with ya mate with its highest ppi on mobile display, it may not be a quad-core but it rocks everything else and its dam right sexy in person
    And I agree, the SGIII has overshadowed many great phones even our own and the only thing it holds is a quad-core processor that HTC had too

    They didn't sue HTC, Sony, and Google. Meaning, Samsung was sued because, Apple could prove they copied them.
    What did Apple introduce that wasn't already there?

    They blatantly copied Apple, as simple as that. Stop raging and look at the facts:

    I chose iPhone for a reason...I knew what Samsung offered and it wasn't what I wanted.

    It's the same thing with the Wii Remote and Move. That's how it happens...I'm sure the Wii Remote was likely inspired by something else before it (even if not in the market).

    The Walkman inspired a lot of manufacturers out there, i.e.

    I will buy apple products over samsung any day. I do agree when something great comes out people always copy it but they have to understand not to copy and paste the product. Taking a couple of things away from the other product is alright imo but you have to put your touch do it so it can be your own.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    The difference is that Samsung practically didn't go the natural evolution route but instead released the iPhone under the Samsung brand.

    Demonstration video made by engineers at Xerox in the early 1990's, demonstrating a conceptual system for tangible interface. Essentially, humans interact with a computer using an ordinary physical desk and just using their fingers. Even though the video is slightly dated in some fashions, the spreadsheet demo is still quite amazing. Original concept by Pierre Wellner.

    Xerox research department was so amazing, created the GUI, networking (to an extent) along with one of the first touch UIs. It sucks their board was so trash.

    I would love to see the details of the case to see how the court came to this decision. Seriously!! I'll do some research and post any results I find. Its just unbelievable this verdict!
