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.

You redefined verb "pioneer" to suit your narrative.

Please re-check my comments. I said: "iPad and iPhone are pioneering devices and totally different from what used to be before them in terms of usability, technology and UI concepts, to the point that they can be considered a new category of products. If they were not, we would all using palm treos or Windows tablets with styluses in millions which is not the case."

It doesn't have anything to do with my own experience and has everything to do with the statistics and market capitalization.
