BBC: Samsung has won a UK High Court case against Apple over the design of the firms' respective tablet computers.
You added BBC as the credit url rather than the source and noted as fixed. Thats not quite right. The source is BBC, and your site is the credit URL.
This article's headline should be read as: 'A grown man wearing a powdered wig, a frilly bib & a black gown, deems the Ipad to be cooler than Samsung's tablet, whilst simultaneously brandishing his wooden gavel'
Ah ok, taken it out. The BBC story is sourced within the article, with a link going to the article that Racer-X has suggested. I don't see what the problem is? Happy to sort when I know.
"Judge Colin Birss disagreed saying Apple's designs were not being infringed because Samsung's Galaxy Tab was not as "cool" as the iPad." I'm starting to like this judge. :) Too bad Apple lost the case it was really going in their favor.
Does no Apple fan see that they're doing nothing but trying to prevent everyone from making products of the similar ilk which will just prevent innovation unless it comes the all mighty apple labs? This is the kind of thing that pisses me off so much about Apple and their legion of ifans. ***Newsflash*** Apple didn't invent the tablet PC, they just made it better and when they set about doing so, no one was pissing on their parade though I wish they had. They made it better because no one prevented them from making one thereby allowing for innovation. ***Newsflash over*** I'm glad they didn't win this for many reasons but the biggest one for being a bunch of whiny little bitches. "What is this? someone made a product that uses a touch screen, has minimal buttons and inputs on it? They clearly ripped us off". Give me a break
Best reason for winning a lawsuit ever.
Or worst... Judges don't care about the law they authorize any more.
I don't think Samsung really cares if a judge thinks their products aren't as cool, only if they are allowed to sell them or not.
WOOO! yet another reason for Apple to be able to sue or get product pulled from shelf. Whiny Apple Lawyer voice "but juuuudge...their product is clearly trying to take away the 'cool' factor from my clients device. Won't you pleaaaase make them stop? I'll give you a shiny $20 apple store gift card." FML - are you serious? A judge deems the iPad as a cooler device? Does he honestly believe that or is he just looking for a way to get this case put to bed and he's just reaching for a way to get out of it?
How long will be before Apple decided to patent the concept of "cool" to overcome this? They've already patented a shape as their own.
Correct me if I am wrong Apple/Apple fans one tablet is a modern widescreen format and the other is an Apple LOL
