Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

I'm cheering Samsung?

I'm cheering the industry - which has, sadly, been dealt a heavy blow. Samsung, Apple - they can all disappear for all I care. The industry is all I care about.

Same here - both of them suck; Samsung and their shit support for older devices with Apple believing that the only way they can compete is to sue competitors into a new dimension. Both of them suck but until things change in the United States, the crucible of IT, things won't change internationally.

Your sidenote about Apple need to sue to compete, to not go down and lose, hits the nail. Apple is constantly losing market share against Android and they focus on patents rather then products to stop that. Sueing and turning your "coolness factor" down is not helping to prevent a future decline but its accelerating the downfall. Apple depends, like no other brand, on its reputation and public image. They are actively damaging that for a 1 billion $ peanut. Then Samsung just ships lesser rounded corners at black rectangle in the future and it will sell like before cause nobody buys there devices cause of the black rectangle corner-percentange.
