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.

The Apple stores are based on Bauhaus principles dating from the 1920s. Bauhaus is in turn heavily based on much earlier styles.

If you bothered to learn any design or architectural history you would realise that ALL of Apples products are highly derivative or even blatant copies of existing designs.

Clearly you don't have eyes. Hard to judge these things when you're blind.
