Apple v Samsung

I don't own a mobile phone but the infringements look well pathetic

  • Some of Samsung's handsets, including its Galaxy S 4G model, infringed Apple's design patents for the look of its iPhone including the system it uses to display text and icons
  • All the disputed Samsung devices had copied Apple's "bounce-back response", which makes lists jump back as if yanked by a rubber band
  • Several Samsung devices incorporated Apple's facility allowing users to zoom into text with a tap of a finger

Samsung shouldn't have stolen the patents in the first place. It's their own fault.
Did they steal though... or just make something similar?

If apple were the first company to manufacture a TV with a remote control, should that mean no other manufacturer can follow suit?

And what gave Daimler the idea to put a gear box in their cars? Other cars maybe?

I think the fact this case was thrown out of UK courts but has gone through in USA, where vast amounts of money has a lot more leverage over legal proceedings says a lot.

Which Apple had already pinched from someone else and then patented.

This case just makes me even more likely to buy products from Samsung or HTC rather than Apple. There always was a Cult aspect to their marketing, now they are turning into Scientologists.

Apple don't want to flog you their stuff, you're too old and fuddy-duddy - you've got to be hip and shallow.
Damn, If only I was hip ....
 
Hey, I'm 50 and grey-topped but have iPad, iPhone, Bose surround sound, Garmin sports devices...does that make me hip (notwithstanding taking loadsa Ibuprofen for bloody hips!)?
No it just proves you:

a) Have more money than sense
b) Gullible to shallow marketing
c) Probably get up and dance at your childs parties wearing 70's spandex

Owner of two Macs (my fourth and fifth). And an Android phone. None of the above apply. Especially not three.

I love my apple stuff over Microsoft stuff as it just works and whilst I can see that Samsung really did steal the look and feel of the iPhone and there is a reason the iPhone is everywhere (typing on one now) in looking at the galaxy S3 next as I'm bored with the iPhone and if the new one on Sept 12th does look like the leaks I will be buying the S3.

Apples innovation has slowed down!

They see current tech and find a way to make it better and truly usable. Will they still do that without Jobs? Don't think so!
