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.

we happen to be the second or third largest investor in the United States, so I wouldn't strike such a haughty tone with me, kid.

Though how much of that is because of Shell? (and if large part: not sure anything-oil-industry is a reason to gloat about, especially in the context of the US http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Human_welfare_and_ecological_foot... - fossil fuels is from where we mostly take the "surplus", for now - & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetary_boundaries ...or Sheel in general, WRT to Niger Delta for example)

Interesting about ASML (and... curious HQ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ASML_headquarters_Veldhoven.jpg )
