That's a fair and balanced source, lol.

Why haven't one of these companies patented the idea of making a phone call from a handheld box? I mean, seriously, if somebody could point to why they don't, I'm ignorant on the subject.

/but chock full of spare commas, apparently

Competitive markets, how do they work? Seriously, enjoy paying more for your next iGadget.

If Apple gets the injunction, then the phone and tablet market is screwed.

Wow, the comments on that site are hilarious. One guy is convinced that all the negative reaction to the trial decision is due to paid Google operatives invading their forums. It couldn't possibly be that industry watchers in general are legitimately angry about this, apparently. Good God, the stupidity...

They don't care...their team won. I'm not sure who has the more manipulated fan base: the GOP or Apple.

So by exception, my wife's ASUS Transformer Infinity doesn't work?

Or our HTC Rezounds?

Huh. Would have never guessed. And here I thought I was playing Death Rally, watching Netflix, and doing all sorts of interesting stuff (not really that interesting). Didn't realize that none of those devices actually work and stuff.

/Apple stuff works no better or worse than any of the other top-tier competitors

Then you should get a Samsung Galaxy SIII as it is superior to any smartphone currently on the market.

I've had iPhones since the beginning but was just getting bored with them. Picked up an HTC One X that bricked after two weeks, went back to my iPhone 4, then grabbed one of these on the day they came out. Freaking love it. Nothing against Apple....the iPhones are still floating around the house with other family members and my wife has an iPad...but that SIII kicks serious ass.

Even Google asked Samsung not to copy Apple. Samsung did anyway and there were top down emails directing the copy.

I don't give a flying fark about phones. As long as Samsung continues to make kick ass monitors, I am going to be happy.

Not only that, but the SIII doesn't infringe on Apple trade dress. I gather that not many people know this, but it is possible to innovate AND do something that hasn't already been done, at the same time.

Does this mean the price of an Apple quantity of Samsung patented retina displays just went up by $13 billion rather than just $1 billion? This decision to annoy the worlds largest LCD maker could have some bizarre implications for their corner cutting such as going with 18 bit LCDs that they have been using in nearly every one of their devices. Nothing like watching a display that is always changing colors because they cheaped out. I will be looking forward to the day where displays are once again full 24 bit color.
 
2012-08-27 08:21:06 PM  
That's, OK. Facebook has so far lost almost $70 Billion, and I still can't load a webpage without their stuid little button showing up.

How Much is Zuckerberg Worth?

Samsung is actually trying to keep distance between the businesses because they make so much from Apple.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: They fell 7.5%. Not a catatro-phuc you're envisioning, subby.


And once the verdict is tossed out it will he even less, the jury didn't do their due diligence in rendering a verdict and that's easy to prove.

I find it amazing this is the only lawsuit they lost, even in the UK they stomped apple, the judge in this case really farked up.

Hell the GALAXYII skyrocket doesn't infringe on patents but everyone is ignoring that fact too, Samsung hasn't infringed on any patent by apple in 2 years now.

Eat a bag of dick apple, I'm still not going back even if you get every other phone banned, sick of you telling le what I can and can't do with shiat I PAID FOR.

Apple is being moronic since this makes them look really bad from a PR standpoint.

The truth usually works, did you read the rulings on the case? The judge made some out of the ordinary decisions and will have her verdict over turned.

Yeah it does, the thing that pisses off apple is they are moving faster than they can, the GLAAXYII forced apple to push back one of their phones and the III is forcing them to give lawyers millions.

I did read through the rulings. When there is an internal email asking for a copy of the iPhone and an email from Google telling them not to do so - you can pretty much say, game over.

people who wouldn't buy their product anyways.

The iPhone 5 is going to sell out and have lines around the block this case isn't going to change that.

That's a really smart call. I'm not a huge fan of the jury's decision, but from what I know of the emails Samsung pretty much hung themselves. They might as well save what relationships they still have with Apple.

I spent a week with Android 4.0 and didn't like it all that much.

Now I use WebOS (loooong time palm user). My wife has a first generation iPod Touch (from 2007) with iOS 3.1 that works better than Android or WebOS IN MY OPINION. Smoother and smarter.

copying shiat pioneered by others has been The Asian Way from well before I was born. suddenly they are being held responsible for their actions? WTF?

screw you, Apple. you are a little cult like scientology or catholicism. i pee on your products.
