Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

Do we have Brevik supporters in da house; history a little difficult to take?

The serious point being that ideas and intellectual goods flow, move, evolve, become hybrid, adapt and become therefore resilient due to figurative intercourse between cultures. Without such dynamic interplay there's stagnation.

The same goes for biology; just try keeping that Herrenrasse corralled for a few generations - you'll soon have physiological weaknesses and a marked falling off of adaptability.
