    some reports suggest the context of the "it's time for peace" quote may have stemmed from Andries van Dam's testimony.   from http://www.informationweek.com/hardware/handheld/samsung-attacks-unique-features-of-apple/240005652?pgno=2   ===   "Apple will argue that DiamondTouch and the other prior art--van Dam also pointed out the Launch Tile application on the HP iPaq handheld device as using snap back in its user interface--do not achieve the same effects of snap back...
  to be fair it should be noted that all of us rely on second-hand / summary reporting of the court proceedings.  the lawyers, the judge and the jurors are privy to much more information than any of us do and/or will ever have on this case.
  i don't know the history of his postings (regardless of what username was used) so perhaps it was / is reasonable to ignore him.  that said, however, i don't see how anyone should ignore that particular news article from the Verge.  it details Samsung's stance on the 'bounce-back' patent.
  yes.   being vendor neutral is the only way to really appreciate and enjoy the marvels of human ingenuity.  i do not and will never limit myself to any one brand; there's some really great stuff out there from Apple and other companies.
having skimmed through All Things D, they do have some good, objective reporting http://allthingsd.com/20120807/similarity-of-apple-and-samsung-icons-beyond-coincidental-designer-testifies/?refcat=news   the "internal Samsung document comparing the original Galaxy S phone with the iPhone" doesn't seem to help the Samsung lawyers.
  i'm not sure about that because the survey was "carried out by Dimension Consulting on behalf of Dell's Kace systems management appliance business" http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-20021324-92.html    an expanded edit of the article is over at http://www.zdnet.com/half-of-it-pros-plan-to-use-xp-after-support-ends-4010020916/
  this issue comes down to who (i.e., Samsung or Apple) can articulate better to the jury what is or is not 'similar'.  it's tricky, for sure.
  i agree that Vista is among the weaker releases of Windows.  that said, however, if you equip the machine with 4GB of memory and disable UAC, the resultant is machine is okay.  with either Chrome, Opera or Firefox as the default web browser, gleaning information from the Internet on a Vista box will be a relatively safe(r) experience.
  at the risk of sounding pedantic, there are differences and similarities among all three (3) icons in whichever combination you choose.  differences include the orientation and size of the telephone handset, and the presence or absence of 'icon gloss'; similarities include the green/white colour scheme and usage of a left-leaning telephone handset.  in other words, none of the icons are exact copies of the other(s).   regardless, i'm keen to read what the jury thinks...
  does anyone know whether it's possible to get a copy of the official court transcripts in which this exchange, paraphrased above, took place?   here's another take on the events: http://www.informationweek.com/news/mobility/smart_phones/240005067   "Two Japanese patents and one Korean patent show a rectangular phone form with a large glass face and rounded corners. The glass face varies in size from one patent to the other, but all are much larger than older generations...
