Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

You are the brainwashed one. The percentage of the millions of people who use Apple products who even read websites like these or are aware of software patents and the like is minimal. Most people don't know about the smartphone wars or any of this litigation. Plenty of people use Apple products and are not "brainwashed". The "brainwashed" are a vocal minority of fanbois.

It's like calling every windows user brainwashed by microsoft. Saying that is insulting everyone who has ever used a computer. It's a silly joke at best.
