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.

The only thing I am a fan of is logic... sorry to burst your bubble.
Please show where I claimed anything other than there is likely more than one way to do zooming.

There's also more than one way to do steering in cars, but something like steering wheel is obviously most sensible, all besides the ~wheel are stupid (at least before the era of autonomously driving cars)
You know, that "logic" at work...
