I love how Samsung has become the new Micro$haft. They were inspired by diamonds? LOL! This article really show out out-of-touch and embarrassing this company is: "After extensive research, they found out that the luster of the color that appeared softly was appealing to consumers in their twenties and thirties." Now, I'm sure Apple does similar research, but they don't base their whole product design around market research. They innovate. They didn't do a survey to...
I don't see what his state of mind or thinking has to do with it. In fact, it makes zero difference. Samsung clearly infringed (is that even in question at this point?) and now it's a question of how much they have to pay.
Had my handset replaced under warranty for this same issue.
 This is what they do.  They live in a world of words---almost exclusively.  If they say it (a statement, a speech, a selfie, a tweet, whatever) then it must be true.  Nowhere is this more dangerous than in regards to foreign policy.   It's bad enough that Obama says things like "the Affordable Care Act is providing millions of people with quality, affordable health insurance."  We all know that's a lie, and that it has done much more harm than good as well as cost...
  I have gained nothing but respect for Mr. Blair over the years.   I didn't care for him much during the Clinton years and Bush years, though I do think his decision to support the US in Iraq and Afghanistan was, frankly, brave (especially given the level public opposition to the Iraq war).  Since then, he has been a leading voice against Islamic extremism.  It's too bad we don't have a President who takes that role. 
 All stereotypes are based in some truth.  They become stereotypes when vast generalizations are made and/or assumptions are drawn thereafter. The implication that women can't answer a quick text with a "yes" or "no" is a perfect example.  I know many women who don't fit the stereotype. iMember's comment was really not pertinent whatsoever.    
 1. Apple hasn't introduced this "feature." It's simply being explored.2. I don't see what a person's gender has to do with it. Females being verbose is a stereotype.
 You can take your little condescending lecture and cram it.     Great, I didn't ask for your advice  You're also totally wrong.  Looking at a map is far more distracting than sending a quick yes or no.  
I am only in favor of this if it can be easily disabled. Moreover, all texting and driving is not created equal. If someone shoots me a yes or no question while I'm on an open highway with no traffic on a bright, sunny day, I can safely respond with a quick "y" or "n" or whatnot. It's no different than using Siri, checking the GPS location on Maps, changing songs or launching the Podcast app. Is that going to be disabled too? I've never been favor of such technology.
 Yeah, it does.  Want to know why?  Because we're on a site where we discuss our opinions. You don't have to care what I think, but what I think matters just as much as what you think.   Speaking of what I think, please refrain from telling me what that might be.  You don't know me, champ.  As for the law, we'll see what comes of it.  I have my doubts that it's actually illegal, but it may be.
