Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

No, what it says is that REAL innovation like what Microsoft does rather than me-too that Samsung engages in will result in new ideas coming to the centre stage rather than a regurgitation of the leading businesses ideas but at a cheaper price. I know you're pissed off Thom and going to have a hissy fit but I'd sooner see a real alternative product give Apple a run for their money than 'cheaper than iPhone copy' taking marketshare off the back of a consumer wanting to save a few bucks on a copy of the leaders look and feel. Btw, the law suit wasn't on one aspect but the culmination of all the various parts that were blatantly ripped off - it is one thing to take a few ideas and build upon them whilst creating a unique experience but it is an entirely different situation to be a 'me too'.

Yes, I am prepared for the deluged of down voting from the 'Apple haters' on this forum - because rather than actually hold a debate they use the down vote button instead.
