    I laughed. Hey, it's not like he's wrong! I'm glad to see he's making as big of a joke out of it as the entire law suit was. Apple just needs to learn to sit down and deal with it if something better comes along.

    This is why they are suing everyone. Because everyone has better stuff than them.

    "they are not as cool"

    I believe it's sarcasm.

    Are you trying to tell me that Apple has a right to sue other companies because it's "competition"?

    they are suing Samsung because right after the Galaxy Tab ban was liften..Apple shares fell.

    If other compettitors exist..Apple is not top dog...so they are trying to get rid of everyone, so their will only be one dog..on the top.


    I'm glad the Judge saw through Apples' schemes and wants to promote competition, and not Wor- eh. Market Domination.

    That's usually what happens when a multi-billion dollar company loses a lawsuit. Especially if they are the plaintiff.

    Is it just me or is this the first instance of something not being cool being a good thing that I've managed to see? Hell must be freezing over as I type.

    I'm not sure I ever found iPads to be cool. But as far as the hardware design of the Galaxy Tab, yeah it's less cool than the iPad. I was always attracted more to the software and hardware of Androids, not external aesthetics.

    Go Samsung.. I guess? This is one of those situations where giving a patent for a certain idea of design (screen in the middle of black borders in a rectangular shaped device) is just plain stupid.

    Now to quickly get me a 16 GB Nexus 7 for the $199/$249 prices before it gets banned in the States for a certain period.. Damn European prices and taxes for making me think ahead!

    This is setting us up for the legal battle of the century: what is the exact coolness of Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzerelli?

    It's going to be a bloodbath of a case.

    Actually Coolness is measured in Fonzes. He is the very top of the scale and everything is measured in fractions of a Fonz.

    This is why apple is flipping shit and going berzerk.

    http://briefmobile.c...8BriefMobile%29


    and this is what's been happening for Samsung vs. Apple lately. A judge granted Samsung to have a hearing to get the bans removed on the nexus...

    http://www.electroni...counterfeiters/

    And apple is calling them "pirates, thieves, and counterfeiters" my god...the butthurt seeping out of this company is unbelievable.

    maybe the market analysts are right. Without Steve Jobs. Apple will fall.

    If you take away all the bullshit bribes and litigation's...Apple is already falling....and kicking and screaming on its way down like a little bitch not getting their way.
