Legal "After weeks of witnesses, prototypes, and one last failed settlement talk, it came down to this: Apple and Samsung's closing arguments in what is very likely the tech trial of the century. The day saw both sides landing heavy blows before sending the case off to the jury - where anything can happen." The jury has to contend with 109 (!) pages of instructions and a verdict form consisting of whopping 22 pages with over 700 (!) verdicts to make - and they have to be unanimous. This is beyond ridiculous, bordering on the clinically insane. With several options for appeal still open, there is nothing to be gained from this. It's a circus.

Hummm... let's see:

"For a company so hell-bent on suing others"

So if a company uses the legal system to defend it's interests is wrong. But if the same company violate settlement agreements imposed by this same legal system it is evil and must die?

Selective perception is indeed a b1tch Thom. And your Apple-hate is the most clear case of opt-in blindness that I've ever saw. The problem is not Apple. The problem is the legal system. Apple is only using the legal system on it's own favor. You are not qualified to judge if Apple is doing it too much or too little. Motorola is suing Apple over patents also. Is Motorola wrong? Or in that case Apple is also the villain?

This is not a problem with Apple, Samsung or Motorola. It's a problem with US legal system. Unanimity in 700 verdicts? Holly sh1t! You look just like a fan boy b1tching about Apple. Please stop it.
