Apple, Samsung each cut back on claims for Judge Koh; Apple has a big decision to make
0. phoneArena 05 Jul 2012, 06:18 posted on
Even though yesterday was the fourth of July, attorneys for Apple and Samsung were hard at work, trying to cut back on the number of claims that both sides want to present to the court; Apple must decide between moving forward with the trial or adding a motion claiming patent infringement with the Galaxy S III...

People buying a product made in China and calling it US nationalism, what a stretch.
Apple needs to let it go. All they need do is look at how Oracle got beat down and realize it could be worse for them when Google gets involved. The Siri patent isn't going to hold up do to the overwhelming amount of evidence leaning towards existing technology, and it's too vague on top of that. It'll be just another patent that gets invalidated along with the rest of the ones recently thrown out. Apple, stop while you're ahead and let your technology speak for itself, us consumers will decide in the end who we feel is the best.

I couldn't agree more with everything you said. Especially your first sentence. What the hell is this author smoking?? I think he's stating what he hopes is possible, cause honestly, who's going to come to that conclusion? What a load of nonsense.

So wait a min....all this hoopla and it can still go to trial...?
So really....it can go to trial and wind up in favor of Samsung? Or am I missing something? Theres always a chance in trial. Look at Google vs. Oracle.

Can't the judge consider if Samsung would just make an update for the Galaxy S 3 that would remove the patent that apple claimed to have an infringement? The competition would be totally unfair if Apple would add another device in the case, Samsung is not the only one who made a patent infringement but apple too...

These effing judges need to realize that a Sales Injunction against violating devices is over compensation and really it's an anticompetitive tactic. Apple is unwilling to licence these patents that it was granted, which is a way of harming their competitors rather than making money off their healthy competition. They would rather rule all smartphone sales and reap all the benefits. Don't these judges understand that by helping Apple to systematically remove their competitors because it refuses to license will lead to an Apple monopoly? Google should allow them to ban all Android devices then sue Apple and Judge Koh(joke)for anticompetitive practices. Apple making the profit margins on iPhones so high obviously has made them stinking rich so Samsung sales hadn't killed their profitability. They just want more sales, more money, and higher share prices... I hope Apple dies an agonizingly slow death now that jobs isn't leading it.

The injunction was the win for Apple; they're going to ride that out for as long as they can. Tie everything up in courts with lawyers using sophistry and obfuscation, backed by vast cash reserves to bleed their competitors out. While a great legal battle strategy worthy of Sun Tzu, it's a deplorably immoral and unethical business model.
Due to both prior art and the overly broad verbiage they have to realize they're on the verge of another invalid patent.
It's like using NOS as a boost to win the race... it's all triumph & glory, until it explodes in your face.

I would like to know which parts of iPhone is made in the USA? From what i have heard its made by the slave labour of China.
When you hold an iPhone in your hand, remember who are the people that made it possible. The Chinese population labored in hash working condition to make a iPhone so that Apple could keep the cost low while selling it at a premium price due to the high demand.
I just wish more manufacturers would consider alternative other than out source everything to China creating an imbalance in our modern economy.
We reaped what are sowed. We are selling away our freedom and our children's freedom if we don't restore this imbalance.
Short term gain vs Long term stability.

The more I read articles from this site the more i wonder why i read articles from this site. Do any of the authors for phonearena.com know what they are talking about. To say apple is good for the country (us) Is ridiculous. Apple goes against everything the Us constitution stands for. First off get your facts straight The iphones are made in china not us so doesnt help us there. And in china they are so underpaid the employee have mass suicide. Everything about apple is made over sees and shipped here. Then the people who sell the product are told at what price they have to sell it at or else. And apple charges them a ridiculous price just to stock the product so the store make very minimal while apple makes a ton and keeps it all to themselves. Apple has and always will be the most greediest company around. The authors on this site have me convinced that apple pays them for every good thing they say about apple
