That's right - when someone your close with copies your work and profits from it - just ignore it and keep moving forward.   Great advice.  
I completely agree with this .
Apple's case is over.   Samsung will now present their counter-suit.
Bob Dylan appear on Pawn Star's - that's pretty "low" in stooping terms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVZEp70Fie4   Hawkings done commercials too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be9GLngXyw0

If they stream 1080P Bluray quality (40Mbit/s vs. iTunes 4Mbit/s vs Netflix's 5 Mbit/s.) Let's not forget Doby...
The Samsung 8000 LCD series is a wonderful TV. Only Sony's XBR HX929 series comes close. As for quality - a Bluray player hooked to either of those will be very hard to beat. But since most of the people I know can't really tell the quality of a TV or the programming - a decent Apple monitor with a good panel and content that is better looking than 85% of the Netflix streaming titles quality will be more than enough for them. Apple has a good shot at the mid-level TV...
