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.

Code = math? There wouldn't be computer chips if it weren't for Holland? People quoting wikipedia like it's scripture. Apple copied the app store from Linux.

I was expecting to read some stupid comments in this thread but come on man... I'm surprised I didn't see someone claiming Apple is secretly owned by the Illuminati. But then again, I didn't read every post.
