Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

You're confused about who the aggressor is.

When Apple announced the iPhone, both Google(aka Motorola) and Nokia started to see dollar signs and both companies sued Apple. They sued Apple patents that are "crappy software patents" that were also given as part of basic cellular standards that they promised to licensed under FRAND terms.

Even in Samsung's case, Apple offered to settle with Samsung, rather than go to court, but Samsung was not interested.

I guess some people just hate innovative companies. That's fine, don't buy Apple products.

But when you start committing fraud by lying about the situation, that's not fine.

The history here is no in dispute. So, why lie?


I know you’re a new account as of yesterday… so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. For people that have been using smartphones for the last decade, and watching the technology sphere for longer, your history is absolutely incorrect.

You haven’t read the article above because you’re still insisting Apples narrative of the events is gospel truth, it is not.

And please, keep it pleasant in the comments section.
