  Temporary??   So when folk want to return their Surface tablets, the store has just ... vanished??
  Yup. They don't drop stores in places where there are a lot of people; they drop stores in places where there are a lot of rich people.
Companies sell out for two reasons: They underestimated how popular their product would be. They just couldn't make enough. For Tim Cook, an unfulfilled order is a potential lost sale. The idea that a company will under-produce to generate hype, especially this close to Christmas, is laughable.
  The problem is that the item you quoted involves Apple using innuendo to say that Samsung infringed without actually saying it. In the website statement, Apple is not using innuendo; it is merely stating facts.  The judge said Apple products are cool: fact The judge said Samsung products are thin and insubstantial: fact   I'm not sure how he can sanction Apple for merely stating the bare facts, especially when the statements are those he said himself. Nowhere has Apple...
  In the UK, a judge may order you to apologise, but they will not ask you to say you were wrong. I don't know why that is but I think it's because under UK law, it is your right to disagree, even if the judgement goes against you. In this country, even when someone has been acquitted of murder, we've had senior police officers telling the press that they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the crime. In short, they are disagreeing with the...
  Here's a conspiracy theory:   Samsung brought the case. Not Apple Samsung wanted to get a judgement in the UK stating that it did not infringe and it would like a public statement from Apple, if the case went its way. The judge decided that under UK law, Apple did not infringe, but also thought that such a statement would be tantamount to forcing Apple to advertise Samsung products. So, during the case, he throws Apple a massive bone....   Either that, or the judge got...
  The judge never said Apple had to apologise (Why should they? They didn't bring the case). He simply said Apple needed to state that Samsung did not infringe on its trademark. Apple put that right at the top of the page, along with a link to the judgement.    The judge can tell Apple to remove the last paragraph (it's irrelevant to the UK judgement) , but will he risk making a fool of himself by telling Apple to censor the reasons behind his decision?   "Samsung's...
The big mistake here was made by Samsung. They brought the case to begin with, so as soon as the judge said that iPad was cool and the Samsung tab was thin and insubstantial, they should have called a halt to it and requested a new judge (bias?). They were so focussed on the winning that they failed to see how it could easily turn into a marketing loss.
  In the US case, Judge Koh told Samsung that documents they filed late were not admissible as evidence. Samsung's response was to release them to the public. I don't remember the Android fans complaining too loudly about that.
  It is not contempt of court and the judge made a fool of himself.    He did not order an apology. He said that Apple must post a statement saying Samsung did not infringe and a link to the verdict. Apple has complied. He said that Apple did not have to make it into an advert for Samsung products, Apple has not.   He cannot ask Apple to remove his comments (he did say that the iPad was cool and the Samsung tab was 'thin' and 'insubstantial) because then he would be...
