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.

If long time ago some religion believe in earth is the center of the universe, then now, some 'religion followers' believe that Apple corps is the center of the universe. ;)

Shut up! Don't type again. Or I'll make you can't type. I'll persuade 'that' country to patent alphabet, and 'that' country to patent using 'digit'. If rectangular can be patented, why not alphabet and/or digit.

Oh, I'll make sure you CANNOT use your vehicle, too. I'll persuade 'that dead person' to patent his rounded wheel method.

..Ever think why google persuade Samsung for the design? Cause they know in-out what 'Apple-insider' brain works. Use ur brain, pretty please? ;)

Wise man said, 'Ignorance know no bounds', Mhm..
