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.

I am not so sure; at one time here in the UK, the 'Murdoch Empire' seemed to be unassailable. Now the very family is apparently tearing itself apart and disagreeing vehemently in public.

I would not understimate a similar tipping point here.

The Murdoch family have been tearing itself apart for years - the daughters don't want to have anything to do with the father, the son I have a feeling just hangs around in the hope that the old geiser dies and leaves him with the crown jewels. The cold hard reality is that no one actually likes him - people only hang around in a hope of getting any of the scraps left over when he dies.
