No I am not an attorney, and I relying own my own fallible memory of second hand accounts of this case. Still it sounds like you got angry and all I did was give a simple opinion. Believe what you want, but this case is not going to end this easily. $300 million split between 5 plaintiffs isn't enough to even mitigate this kind of behavior. Apple alone could have saved more then $300 million over the span of this agreement. 4 year times 30,000 employees earning an...
I like Apple's products, but nothing from this case supports such a low cost settlement. The lawyers got a $75 million payday for minimal work and possibly promise of access to the corporate work of these large companies. If the suit had actually involved just ending head hunting of each others employees it would have been at least less sleazy. The final result of this was a freeze on hiring each others employees. That is much less acceptable and should be punished.
This is clearly a problem for Apple. The iPhone may well have been built smaller because Jony Ive prefers smaller designs. The fact is the customers need bigger screens for aging eyes and Samsung has a grip around the best supply of screens in the world. Apple really needs to get a good supplier for screens that is not Samsung. This would be my number one priority if I were the CEO. Relying on Samsung will always make it possible for them to undercut you after each...
This is a response to the quote describing Gatorguy as a better user of grammar then another newer commenter.
And generally not a bad antagonist.  He is honest in his views and consistent with his criticism.  This is a better board with his additions.
Sog35, I sometimes wonder if that is how all of us can afford Apple's products.
Apple applied for data detecters in 1999. Many of their patents are based on computer usage and became applied to cell phones when the iPhone was introduced. Apple will lose patents to time limits, but that is god. Serial innovators gain inceasing advantage over time. Dont sweat the small stuff, and keep working hard to make the next product. Apple wont make the mistake of releasing a product before it iis ready. That way there is less time to copy it before it can...
I wouldn't put your hopes on anything more than a weak version of 3. Apple has the IP, but juries are notorious in these cases as being not much better than a flip of the coin. I think you can expect Apple to lose this case on some level. The really interesting possibilities for Apple are based upon what they announce in June. Serial Innovation becomes more and more difficult to copy. Even if Apple only fights Samsung to a standstill on the prior theft of IP, if they...
If I were Apple I wouldn't waste time suing a Amazon. They are selling you a phone that makes it easier to sell you Amazon products. This is a company that has no earnings. They won't survive the first downdraft in this market because the don't have the capital reserves. Apple has looked weak over the last 2 years because they lost faith with their main supplier of screens just as large screens became popular. It took every bit of 3 years to get investments in new...
I am really hoping the next generation 12 inch macbook air with Broadwell that is rumored to be replacing the current model is evidence that we will see 14 and 16 inch macbook pros. High def screens need more real estate. A 16 inch macbook pro would be stunning. The 14 inch would be much more compelling than the 13 inch. The next mobile GPU from nvidia will also bring much better performance per watt. At least if the 28 nm 750 ti on the desktop is any indicator then...
