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.

I replied to Orfanum who spread some FUD about turtle necks and supported it with "prove" that turned out to be overly flawed. Then you joined Orfanum's side.

The agreement that started in 1978 and has seen 2 grey area cases is generally boring and has nothing do to with turtle necks or Apple being a repeat offender, which Orfanum and you suggest.

It's just how things work in this world, but just because one party is Apple (Computer) you designate them the villain and the other automatically the good guys.
