Legal Okay, I didn't see this one coming. German press agency dpa is reporting that Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction barring Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being distributed in the entire European Union except for The Netherlands, over a design patent. Competition at its finest, people, and this is clearly in the interest of consumers. I'm ashamed to be European. Updates in the article now. This iterative update process isn't really working when you've got a gazillion of them.

you know what sucks, you design a great product i.e., ipod, iphone and then some shitty copy comes about via google and samsung and you can't do anything about it. they steal eveything you made and you're supposed to be ok in letting them take it.

Im sure the Xerox PARC engineers said the same when Apple copied the ideas for their MacOS.

Apple actually paid to see their "ideas", they didn't go through the back door as is commonly believed...

I'm sure Dieter Rams feels the same towards Apple....
