I'm glad the jury was able to see the truth and make the right decision.

Lord_Sloth2247d ago

Oh hi. You must be an Apple fan.

thebudgetgamer2247d ago

I don't own any Apple products, my phone is a Droid 3, computer is Linux and I game on consoles.

Legion2247d ago

Linux is an operating system. But it goes to say that you are likely an anti-Microsoft person and thus by default likely an Apple supporter.

Moentjers2247d ago


and the judge is an Apple fan, the members of the jury are Apple fans, the media are Apple fans, the 69% of the tablet market customers are pure Apple fans ?

Only Samsung is such an honest company that always pays for the ideas/research/marketing of others that they like so much to use in their 'new' products ? Just look when Samsung came to the TV-market ? Right, after letting other companies open it for the mass. Easy money...

Trenta272247d ago

Apple released the Iphone then almost 2 years later Samsung released one just like it. Nothing really to argue about.

Brawler2247d ago

I just don't get how the jury went through 700 decision in 2 days seems kinda fast.

ABizzel12247d ago

When it comes to software and ease of use Apple is far ahead of most companies.

But price, better hardware (Apple is working on this), and open source is enough to give Apple competition from it's competitors.

Then forgive me for asking but what part of this lawsuit being successful makes it the right call? They're suing because of rounded edges and squares!

thebudgetgamer2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

Because it shows upstarts they can't break patent laws in order to be successful.

Not that I agree with how patent laws work.

Edit: What about O.J.?

Lord_Sloth2247d ago

Samsung's not really an upstart and they're still suing over Square shapes which they patented AFTER squares were already in use by everybody AND they copied the Android Notification bar! They're the biggest corporate gathering of hypocritical douche-bags in the last 50 years!

This is the worst call ever made by any jury anywhere! Apple gets away with too much bulls*** and people try to justify it all the time.

I bet I could get away with copy-writing circles and then sue MS for their start button! Maybe even wedding rings!

ThePundit2247d ago

Your word against the Jury.

Or are you Judge Dredd?

Brawler2247d ago

The main things they one on were screen bounceback and multitouch patents for the following devices: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab, The Gem, Indulge, Infuse 4G, Mesmerie, Nexus S 4G, Replenish and Vibrant, Continuum, Droid Charge, Exhibit 4G, Galasy Ace, Prevail. Galaxy Tab Wifi. The multitouch patens imo are dumb. It will go to appeals and will drag out some more.

jerethdagryphon2247d ago

by the right decision you mean the one that was programmed into the 9 men and women who lived in apples hometown and have been immersed in the apple religion for 10 years.

was there product inspired sure, was there overly a little to close yes

should apples minimilistic design be alowed to be protected no not at all design a large screen phone without using a rounded rectangele and your left with not much to work with

NovusTerminus2247d ago

This is BS. I hope Google tears Apple apart over the Notification bar theft!

Glad they didn't get the 2bil, but this is stupid!

LOL_WUT2247d ago

"Samsung have been ordered to pay just over a whopping $1 billion"

I knew Apple would come out wining. Poor Samsung they had no chance going against Apple it just goes to show who's the top dog.

Adva2247d ago

So apparently EU and South Korea says there is no Copy and USA says there is copy. hhhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm

thebudgetgamer2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

South Korea says no copy, Samsung is a South Korean company.


Adva2247d ago

It must be a EU company too because they also said no copy.

KingPin2247d ago

i called this before.

check my comment

its all about getting free money.

chrisarsenalsavart2246d ago

USA are back to the seventies with the buy american slogan.
sue the competition, use the media to ridicule the competition just like general motors used to do when toyota first started to sell in NA.
Look now, how Microsoft and Apple behave towards the competition.
Deja vue.
