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.

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'.

Apple has their own survey which says that isn't the case - people who have bought Android devices don't see any similarities nor did they buy it because they thought they were getting a cheaper iPhone.

Handing a jury not knowledgeable about technology a set of very narrow questions where similarities were doctored in is not much of a victory, and this has no real chance of being upheld on appeal.
