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.

70% of the world's computer chips is made using chip making machines from a Dutch company called ASML. In other words, without us, you'd have no computers in the first place. On top of that, we happen to be the second or third largest investor in the United States, so I wouldn't strike such a haughty tone with me, kid.
