    So it appears as if Apple is going after another 4 Samsung devices including the Galaxy S III


    And heres a list of what else there going after



    Let the hearing commence on the 20th September, and if you've been putting off getting a Galaxy S III you might want to hurry up and get one soon

    As if Apple didn't get enough money from the last case.

    Apple sure likes Samsung to give them so much attention. Aren't there other devices that are "similar" to Apple's own stuff, or is it simply because Samsung has the money?

    They're just angry from the last case

    Apparently Samsung paid Apple the one billion by sending them 30 trucks full of 5 cent coins

    EDIT: On topic, this is just stupid. Apple needs to deal with the fact that competition will always be present no matter what.

    In some time Apple will be suing Samsung because their phones can make calls

    Apple doesn't have the money yet, and likely wont (at least not in full). There are many legal action Samsung is sure to take after that judgement. After asking for the judgement to be dismissed (I guess its possible that it could), they'll go into the appeal process. The ending to the last case will probably not be realized for months, and likely will just end in a settlement.

    As for the 30 trucks of nickels thing, that was just a piece of satire.

    Fuck that shit, they better not win this time. I've been really meaning to get a Galaxy SIII or Sii.

    I'm seriously going to be pissed if this happens. What are they going after them this time for?

    Although the story was a fake it would be, wait for it.......... Legendary if Samsung did do something similar to this, they would earn alot of respect while really pissing Apple off, and nobody could do anything about it as they would of filled their legal requirement. The Ultimate practical joke

    It seems a little ironic that these actions are just gonna make people want to support Samsung more and stop the bullying from crapple.

    This is hardly something to worry about. The action isn't even scheduled for trial until March 2014. The issues will be resolved, changed, or not even matter since the GSIII will be extremely outdated by then.

    Good read on why this isn't really a big deal compared to the events of the past few weeks.

    I really don't call a few months extremely outdated. Years? Sure, but not months.

    Samsung has already announced the Galaxy Note II for fuck sake. Galaxy SIII will be small potatoes by then. Not to mention that Samsung can remove most of what Apple is pissed about through software updates.

    So, that doesn't mean it will be outdated lol. That's like saying the regular 3DS is outdated because the XL came out. It's just a different product for people who want a different product.

    Apparently Apple really doesn't want Samsung to carry on making their A5 processors. At this point, I would just stop the production lines the moment Samsung reaches the contracted minimum - this is getting ridiculous.

    Comparing an Android OEM to Nintendo is a bit of a stretch. ;) My point isn't that you shouldn't get a GSIII because it will be 'outdated'. Just saying by the time this possibly goes to trial, that the GSIII won't be the big contender that it currently is on Samsung's road map.

    I don't get the massive fuss because both crapple and shamsung have absurd company infrastructures.
    SEE BELOW

    This is just absurd I agree, but Shamsung suing Crapple for 4G LTE on the iPhat 5 is just as ridiculous.

    I would call Samsung smart if they don't retaliate. They could just ignore the jury (and not pay), but they should not fight back like this. They are just ruining their own image, just like how Apple is doing to themselves right now.

    Speaking of these, I wouldn't judge an overall product based on company hate. A LOT of websites I've been to state "I hate iPhone because Apple is an arrogant piece of crap."

    That may be true, but (even if the iPhone is inferior to other Android superphones) it's still at the very least, a decent phone which is quite easy to use.

    Not trying to fend Apple btw. Most times I do hate their arrogance and atrocious patents.

    EDIT:
    Just checked some news pages.

    Seriously, Galaxy Note too?

    I can see Apple being the next Nokia. I hope they wake up sooner than they know it.
    AND COME UP WITH PRODUCTS THAT AT LEAST MATCH MARKET STANDARDS. /fanboy

    But on a serious note, I do hope that Apple realizes that this is a wrong path.

    EDIT AGAIN:
    Just read about Apple threatening smartphone sellers.
    If all this is true, Apple is really being a massive bully.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Samsung did used to copy large swathes of design from Apple. Not being any kind of lawyer or accountant I have no idea if it's $1 billion in dollars worth.
