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.

But for once, it would be nice if people argued the merits of a subject instead of calling each other names, reacting in ways they've done so many times it's second nature now. This forum seems to be turning into the US Government.


This article is about showing the dark side of Apple attempting to destroy competitions with litigation. Outside OSNews and other informative websites, many people are not aware about negative impacts of patents used as weapon to stifle innovations and evolution in IT world.

It is very important to keep readers informed about the sad reality related to anti-competitive behaviour of most larger companies (in this case Apple), not to sideline crucial part that are patent laws affecting technologies, developers ,and consumers.

But I think you are missing my point; I have no issue with the article , only the immediate prediction by some of Apple "fanboys" immediately rejecting the news itself. I think it would be nice to just not hear "fanboy" for a while, and instead argue the MERITS of an article, instead of calling people names ( and I'm talking about both sides, not just one or the other). How easy is it to denigrate someones opinion because you've pre-classified them before they can say something? That smacks of intellectual laziness to me.
