Seems to me that this has all been a colossal waist of taxpayer money. Purely an entertainment excercise. I only hope the jury sees the same thing and throws this thing out on its ear.

What's next? Chrysler suing Ford, G.M., Honda et al because they all "copied" mini-vans? Ooh, ooh, isn't the steering wheel a "user interface"? TV remotes? Locks that use keys? Do the descendents of Sholes and Glidden (first commercial typewriter for you history buffs) sue Apple because they use a qwerty keyboard (talk about a copied user interface)? Apple is coming across worse than sleazy patent trolls on this one.

Good Job Samsung. Hit them where it hurts. They stole that touchscreen idea, just like they stole their Mac OS UI. It's funny how this iTHIEF Cupertino company steals from others, but they BITCH like little girls when it comes to theirs. I disliked Apple for whining so much, now I HATE THEM!

re: Samsung Hammers Apple's Damage Claims
This is the most unbiased article I've read about the case - good job. Everything else I've read has been very biased and in favour of Apple.

If you really want a laugh, type in "Apple sues" into a Google search.- they sued just about everyone except God, whom I imagine the Apple cult will sue next so they install Steve Jobs as iGod, and the ultimate ruler of the universe.

There's about 27,800M citations for "Apple sues"!!

I imagine they they have a case in the works to sue over the word "apple" claiming that it their intellectual property and people confuse Granny Smith apples for iPhones thus causing a loss in sales. Even using a image of an Apple is an infringement of Apple's trade mark and suable.

I wonder if Apple will sue claiming the word "Sue" s their intellectual property, they seem to have the corner on that market.
