Legal Yes, I'm hearing you guys - time to tone down a bit on the patent news. Hence, a summary here of recent developments concerning the various legal cases between Samsung and Apple. Today in The Netherlands, the judge ruled [Dutch] that Samsung will not be able to block the iPhone/iPad from the Dutch market. In the meantime, the Australian courts upheld the preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, while the American courts ruled that while the Tab indeed infringes upon Apple's design patents, Apple has not yet convinced the judge that that actually matters. Tying this all together with earlier rulings we already covered - it seems like judges across the world are really, really willy-nilly. Update: DailyTech has some detailed visual comparisons between Samsung's and Apple's devices, as well with the various design patents. Huh. You don't say.

ok, you missed it on all points by defending this way.

Prada looks like someting else so it's ok to get that model and use it. And only because it internally works different..? Ever noticed the major diferences in android vs iOS? Tey are hardly compareable.

Ok, let's sue Apple for te notificatins and the voice control. Thise are old too. So much for the "inventions" of apple. And OTA.... what about MMS etc. Seriously we're talking about a religion -- "if you touch apple you touch me.."

In fact, Apple is not for their customers. They *refuse* to give you any choices. It's their way or... How good can that be. And don't come up with that "it just works" -- I never have seen so many problems with the latest iOS updates and still the device(s) lack basic functionality.

The only onses who loose: the customers. Apple is not innovative -- they are just very good at marketing. People folow them because they are affected by that maketing machine.
