    Judge Koh has lifted the ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 previously banned by the her jurisdiction due to a legal order from the Court of Appeals. It was ruled that the device did not infringe on Apple's patent but there is a possibility of it being banned once again following the hearing on December 6th.
    In the spirit of victory, Samsung filed a lawsuit against the iPhone 5 stating that It had infringed 8 of its technologies including synchronization and transferring of video files. The iPhone 5 is likely to be replaced by the next model before a hearing on this case.

    Considering all the appeals (and appeals of appeals) that are likely going to be thrown at each decision, I wouldn't be surprised if this sort of decision flip-flopping becomes a regular sort of event.

    Between insane and insecure
    Can I just sue both of them for abusing the court system?

    I don't understand the relevance of the Tennis Player photo.

    My ability to care about this is long gone, as long as I can buy the phone/tablet I want without problems then I really couldn't give a shit.

    Go ahead. I'd feel better if you sue Apple first. They're the ones who couldn't stand competitors and just... had... to stamp down.

    the image has an important message i.e.

    1.) The player is a powerful person although not top ranked i.e. Samsung
    2.) The shot being hit is in return of a stroke from another player i.e. Ban
    3.) The return is with full intensity and using the player's strongest shot (forehand) i.e. go straight to the iPhone 5
    4.) The game is played on clay which is the player's best performing pitch i.e. Samsung strong in the market and with best fan support so far
