Legal Dutch news website WebWereld.nl investigated the claim that Apple supplied the German court with tampered evidence, and their research is pretty self-explanatory. I don't have the time to translate the article for you, but the images speak about ten thousands words; Apple has changed the aspect ratio of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in a side-by-side comparison (while also showing Android's application drawer open instead of showing the home screen, but the article doesn't mention that). Come on, Apple. Update: As Gusar notes, Apple also Photoshopped the Samsung logo off the bezel. Real classy, Apple.

Dang ! So how accurate is that original post ?
How can you be sure that this isn't a hoax ??

You all seem pretty quick to judge and condemn Apple.

Also, how much more likely is it that some unethical advertiser (neither Samsung nor Apple) did make those changes ? I mean ... what's the original source for the images ?

I often see online ads for free iPads, iPhones, and other devices with the wrong aspect ratios. Sure, those websites are scam, but they still display materials much similar to the incriminated ones.

Couldn't Apple have taken a screen capture from one of those ads ?

well ... anyways ... personally I see nothing convincing there and I'll just wait and trust the court of law and its experts to study the evidence and proceed accordingly.

Presuming what we're seeing is the material actually submitted to the court by Apple (or accurate reproductions thereof)...very.

If it is we'll know soon enough.

I would hope Apple is more professional than that. Then again, obviously that might not be the case.

Thom, the Apple hater/device owner, reported what happened on day one, but not day two.

But hey, Thoms promotes any anti-Apple news to absolute truth and any pro-Apple news as lies, so this has to be true too.

One may argue that it is more cynicism towards the industry as a whole than Apple themself.

Thom, the Apple hater


"hater"? That sounds like something you'd read in the youtube comments of a tween girl defending Justin Beiber.

But hey, it's good to see that iFanboys have finally abandoned the pretension that Apple's products are for the refined, intelligent, and cultured elite.

Sure. Apple has always been so honest.
