Yes, but Samsung will for sure settle now.
The Verge also has a live blog. http://live.theverge.com/apple-samsung-verdict-live/
This meme gets repeated so often. If you don't even have an original thought and just parrot some statement by a Samsung executive, then save us from reading your drivel.As this article nicely highlights, the features in the design patent are not just the shape and corners. Things like the edge-to-edge glass and no edge cutouts are key components. Obvious? So obvious no one else did it before Apple. Natural progression? So natural after Apple did it.Add in the packaging...
Why do you keep using the iPhone 4 design in your comparison photos? Oh! I know! Because you don't know anything about this case nor about the law which applies. You're just another armchair "lawyer" hack who thinks you can bring your own thinking process to it. Of course, your thinking process starts with "Samsung didn't copy Apple" and then ends.
  We'll see. So far, none of the operators are letting MVNOs onto the LTE networks. But honestly, HSPA+ is pretty good and I don't noticed much of a performance difference in practice versus my LTE iPad.
This is why I use Straight Talk. I get the "benefit" of AT&T (the benefit being that it's network is GSM based) without the hassle. I never buy a subsidized, locked phone because the payback is only 8 months (plus a phone with a higher resale value). Plus, I get a lower monthly cost.

People are so wrong about all of this, with the constant "voice is the future" or "motion is the future". Every Jedi knows that it takes both a vocal command with a gesture to use a Force power. It's not "these aren't the droids you're looking for" ... it's "these aren't the droids you're looking for" combined with a wave of the hand. Just one or the other isn't enough.
For those of us who have used a Kinect, I doubt Apple regrets that decision whatsoever.
Ah, I misread it. I thought you were criticizing the size of the dividend. Another read makes it clear.   It still doesn't change that a dividend has no real impact. Apple has a practical problem in that it can't sit on so much cash (which is increasing) forever. I fundamentally agree that Apple is in the best position to put that cash to the best business use but, as Apple hasn't shown any inclination to make big acquisitions (which is smart), the number of options is...
