Legal "[...] tonight Apple entered into evidence in its trial with Samsung a document showing that it offered the South Korean company a licensing deal on some of its key technologies. Specifically, Apple offered to license the portfolio of patents if Samsung would pay $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet." $30-40 per device is a lot of money for some trivial features (rounded corners, slide-to-unlock etc). No wonder Samsung declined.

He now whining about the amount of posts about this subject seems indeed hypocritical; which is the opposite of integrity :-)

About integrity he said: you did have a lack of. :-)

"Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions. Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy, in that it regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs." -wikipedia

The problem here is this : feed Thom stories with reporting that support his argument and he gushes about how large his ego is, feed stories that oppose his straw man arguments, he uses them as opinion pieces to push forward his slanted agenda. Feed Thom stores that prove issues with his position because the actual premis can be proven flawed, he questions translations and accuracy. Well, he can't have it both ways. Either all evidence from the trial is infallible and accurate, or it is flawed and purposefully slanted on both sides. Realty tells us the latter is true for both parties.

This is my current position : the court will decide the case. Thom can shit gold bricks and it won't make any difference. But if all he is going to do is talk about how right Samsung is and how wrong Apple is - well we've done that to death, and it's boring beyond belief.. Moreover, every fcuker here has an opinion one way or another - is there anything really worthwhile left to discuss? Is anyone gaining any real insight? Is anyone's opinion being swayed? All I see is the usual suspects come out on every story. One side hates Apple, one side hates Samsung. Some drifters float to either side, and some radicals sit on the fence in the middle. Same arguments. Same penis waving. Same ill informed opinions on both sides. Tired, boring, shoot me.

The most repeated arguments, penis waving, ill informed opinions, and generally boring comments are those that whine on and on about a lack of variety and the presence of bias in content from people who merely consume and don't produce.

You're not forced to read the articles on the lawsuits. You can also write your own.
