 So easy getting a rise out of a troll. You know how to add numbers, right? You understand Grade 3 math? Then you're all set. I suggest going to a tech blog that gets a large number of users/comments (and that isn't heavily moderated). Engadget is a good example (though any blog will do). Read the following review. When you get to the comments, click on the "Top Comments" to see who got the most votes. You'll see that the majority of them are anti-Apple...
 Not for you. Unless you want to go back and answer the numerous questions I've posed to you that you never bothered to back up. Certain AI members deserve such considerations. You do not.
 This is a key point. Why spend so much $$$ in court fighting over a feature that's "worthless"? As we've seen with Slide-To-Unlock and Samsung's own internal user testing, it's far from useless. In fact, it was the best method  out of all the ones they tried.
 He has mentioned that he's developing an Android App. I can only conclude that it's probably an App for a certain demographic where Android is the dominant platform (perhaps something for his home country of Germany). No App developer wanting to reach the widest possible audience of revenue generating customers would ever choose Android first (or choose to be Android exclusive).
 He wasn't skewed pro-Apple - he was skewed pro-truth. Lately he's been critical of Apple, and I'm not really sure why. I'll reserve judgment for when the trial is over and to hear what his opinions of the verdict are. As to claiming AI "you're only as good as your last decision", that's actually reserved for the Android users/Apple haters on all tech blogs following this. To imply otherwise is to ignore facts (sort of like Android users saying something like "if Apple...
Blah blah blah. Who cares if Google was working on the same ideas. It's IRRELEVANT. All that matters if who has a patent on it. If Google did in fact come up with it earlier, then they are stupid (or incompetent) for not applying for a patent. This happens all the time in the real world - when you have multiple companies all trying to solve various problems it's inevitable that sometimes two people come up with the same idea. However, the first person to patent it is the...
Regardless of how much $$$ Apple gets, the real value of these trials are seeing the internal documents to understand how both companies work (and just how bad Samsung really is). Samsung has been caught price fixing several times and has paid hundreds of millions in fines. They have had several employees criminally convicted for everything from tax evasion to supplying traders with inside information (going all the way up the the CEO). They even hire bloggers to spread...
 I've been an audiophile since the late 70's. By audiophile I mean someone who's really into music and listening to it on a high-end system. However, I'm not one of those idiots who claims they can hear the difference between a $50 speaker cable and a $2,000 speaker cable or that a $50,000 amplifier will sound better than a $2,000 amplifier. My entire system (which happens to be mostly Canadian made) is worth around $10,000, what I consider a point at which you can achieve...
How will Samsung and others respond to this? Nobody makes a high-end phone with a smaller screen except for Apple. They have had that market to themselves for years. Now it looks like Apple will make large screen phones as well, attacking Samsung where they make their money. I doubt Samsung will introduce a compact high-end phone to start competing with Apple (esp after promoting the advantages of screen size for so long). So what's left for Samsung to do? Apple is going...
 "violate the very same patents" Stop already. Please show me where HTC, Motorola and all the others violated Apple's design patents the way Samsung did. Samsungs huge marketing budget PLUS making a phone that was a complete rip of the iPhone is what got the ball rolling for Samsung. And once rolling there was no turning back.
