 @tmay :  Sure, a rubber iPhone case whose design represents the entire value of the product (plus the cost of rubber) would be an unitary product.
 @tmay :   All cases are precedent setting in the American court system. This particular ruling matters a lot to the tech industry because the "disgorgement of total profit" damage typically applied to unitary product was never used in a case involving highly complex, multicomponent tech products.  This is exactly why all large tech companies are stepping up their support for Samsung. 
 @kibitzer : well, technically, it's the young fresh-out-of-law-school law clerks who review and decide what gets to be heard in the SCOTUS.  Considering that Samsung has the support of the legal community / academics and the industry, they do have a good chance (to be heard) here.  Apple has no such support, but has considerable political influence over policy-making (and policy-makers -- eg, the Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012 introduced in August 2012).  ...
 @SpamSandwich  : except that this is not a software patent case.  This is a design patent case. 
@foggyhill : yep, that's a ridiculous paltry sum, especially compared to what Apple will have to pay Ericsson in royalty.
 I hear Intel's custom foundry is still in business, however small.  But they don't offer the same cutting edge nodes for customers. Why would you expect Apple to make their own baseband?  Has Apple historically done this?  From what I understand, Apple didn't even have much chip design expertise until it acquired PA-Semi and Intrinsity in 2008 and 2010. It cost them nearly a $1B in acquisition alone and took them years to develop their first AP.  Further, it still...
 @sog35:  It's difficult to tell how Apple's revenue would be affected by the Yuan devaluation, but, as usual, I see a lot of misinformation here.  According to Apple's latest 10-Q (June 2015), the net sales from "Greater China" was $13,230 (M) on $49,605.  That's about 26% and over 100+% growth (QoQ) -- meaning China's share of Apple's revenue is quite sizable and the revenue driver for the company. The iPhones are "assembled" in China -- which is a very small part of the...
 @basjhj: Sure. you are regurgitating the same garbage repeatedly raised, addressed in Post #50.   Nobody here is arguing that everything is rosy in Samsung land, but you.  Your nonsensical mischaracterization about the graph not scaled precisely down to decimal places doesn't change the irrelevance of your all your comments in this thread. 
 @basjhj : just goes on to show that you are still trying to BS your way out.   For the time interval values chosen for between log6(6) and log6(36) in the graph, the five-decimial x-values are   they are fairly close to how they are represented in the rough graph (especially given the absolute size and scale, and, most importantly, the expected audience/reader) try harder if you are going to make a point.  but again this doesn't cancel out the fact that you absolutely...
 @basjhj : Are you f'ng kidding me? Of course, log() is a non-linear function and the unit values represented in the graph aren't uniformly distributed. Are you complaining because the graph in the marketing, non-scientific research paper is not drawn precisely down to a few decimals places?  Glad that you don't care about the first 4 points -- it explains why you have nothing to say on the topic we are discussing here.
