I'm not being an idiot. If this were a case of Ford v. Chevrolet, you could bet your arse that the legal teams would be able to identify a Focus from a Sonic from across the room with one eye closed. When the complaint is about design elements, don't be so self-righteous to pretend that the look
doesn't matter. In fact, it's the ONLY thing that matters. Samsung's team not being able to identify their product from an iPad brings up validity to Apple's claims of infringement.
If the redesign of the Tab to the 'N' version was so simple and differentiating, why didn't Samsung design it that way to begin with? The answer, of course, is that the first version looked more like the iPad, and could ride on the coat tails of Apple's products.
