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.

I am not so sure; at one time here in the UK, the 'Murdoch Empire' seemed to be unassailable. Now the very family is apparently tearing itself apart and disagreeing vehemently in public.

I would not understimate a similar tipping point here.


The Murdoch family have been tearing itself apart for years - the daughters don't want to have anything to do with the father, the son I have a feeling just hangs around in the hope that the old geiser dies and leaves him with the crown jewels. The cold hard reality is that no one actually likes him - people only hang around in a hope of getting any of the scraps left over when he dies.

Yes, as said, I inadvertently gave misdirection to my own argument :-s

Whether or not the children have been squabbling for years prior to Murdoch's debacle, there have been two essential Murdoch periods in the UK

1) Untouchable
2) Disgraced

Moving from 1) to 2) didn't take that long.

Personally if I was a politician I would take over all their businesses, deport him and his whole family from the country and ban any media created by organisations linked to him from being broadcasted in the United Kingdom. People like him have served no beneficial purpose to the good of society and thus his removal would only help but to improve the discourse, especially around politics where it seems sensationalism and conspiracies have replaced rational discourse.
