Legal "In its case against Samsung Electronics in the Netherlands, Apple is demanding an extensive ban on all Galaxy series smartphones and tablets, including a complete recall of stock by European distributors and resellers. Apple's complaint against Samsung in The Hague district court is much more comprehensive than previously thought. It's not only broader in its legal scope than a separate, ongoing Apple complaint against Samsung in Germany, but an injunction could have a 'huge impact' on the entire European market for smartphones and tablets, according to Alastair Edwards, principal analyst at Canalys." That's how far Apple is willing to go. They are willing to screw over countless resellers - some big, some small, one-shop affairs - because they don't like competition. I wonder how the Grubers of this world are going to spin this one. Hey Steve, I've got another extremely successful Android phone maker for you to sue.

Member since:

I was asking a multimedia version(color LCD) of iRex iLiad back in 2006. And when Apple finally introduced iPad I was thankful that someone has finally did it - a lightweight hyper low power device*. My problem with iPad is only the OS - it's not adapted in any meaningful way(iOS5 should be changing some of those issues).

Apple again shook-up the market, but they did not introduce anything ideologically new.

* - Since ULPs may refer to Intel's Atom crap.
