    "We're all scratching our heads and saying, 'How is this possible...?"

    ...

    How can anyone say this Samsung phone is not a copy of the iPhone? And since other Samsung phones look nothing like this (or the iPhone) how can Samsung whine about fighting over rectangles? It's obvious there is more than one way to design a phone and in some cases Samsung chose the easy way out by copying.

    Your child like use of the word "allegedly" lowers the level of discourse. Look it up, use it properly, stop being a sheep.

    One has a Samsung logo and the other has an Apple logo. What more can you ask for? /s

    I think we are kidding ourselves if we think there are not a lot of android lovers out there who believe this guys rectangle comment. Just check out Daily tech forums for some prime examples. I think it is important to remember there are a lot of people who think it is good to steal ip. They started convincing themselves back when they began downloading music and porn. Now they want less expensive electronics and cell phones. If someone on that jury sees it to be in their best interest to lie to the judge about their bias prior to jury selection, then that is just what they are going to do.

    Are any of the rest of you guys seeing how possible it is for Apple to get shafted in their home court?

    I hope Samsung is relying completely on this lickspittle for innovation.

    Prove Apple wrong, Samsung. Shut Apple down in the courts. 


     


    Oh wait . . . 


     


    Apple's case has merit.

    <vc><strong>In an interview with <em>Wired</em>, Samsung's Chief Product Officer Kevin Packingham alludes to Apple's aggressive pursuit of patent litigation and finds it "unreasonable that we?re fighting over rectangles, that that?s being considered as an infringement."</strong>

    And this is really just a yellow M:

    700

    If you oversimplify things, then of course design patents and trademarks seem ridiculous.
    stifling competition with design patents that are not "particularly unique, and really don?t represent intellectual property."

    I'd say Apple's iPhone and iPad designs were pretty unique until everyone else started making their products look the same. The uniqueness certainly wears off when everybody copies something.
    "In the current environment, there?s just one company that?s firing the first shot consistently," Packingham said. "Most everybody else seems to be getting along really well".

    Yeah all the Android-using manufacturers and ultra-book manufacturers are getting along really well and they all want to copy what Apple is doing. Just because there's no in-fighting amongst a gang of thieves doesn't mean the victim has no right shouting about their theft.

    Honour among thieves. This sloth-like, lazy industry is guilty at large. 


     


    The patent and court systems exist. Apple has used them and is using them. Others were either too slow or too ignorant to wake up. 


     


    Everybody had a chance to pull off a June 2007 and a January 2010. And now they're feeling the PAIN of their own neglect and blindness. 


     


    If Apple had no case, they'd have left the litigation behind by now. But surprise surprise, Apple has tested their claims in court and are doing fairly well.


     


    When the going gets tough, Samsung cries foul. Looks like they aren't too confident.

They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds. My buns have no seeds."

    No I won't because I won't be buying that brand and no it's not ironic because I was aware of it.


    Give it time. I am sure Apple is looking to build new alliances and partnerships with other component providers.

    anyone care to explain what you mean by "more than just rectangles"? Don't give me explanations related to software, operating system, etc. I know those are part of the lawsuit, but they're completely separate from the design aspect, which seems to be the main focus of this discussion.


     


    in the design aspect, what do you mean by more than just rectangles?
