Apple loses its UK appeal motion, forced to run ads that Samsung did not copy its iPad design
0. phoneArena 18 Oct 2012, 05:31 posted on
That is the same judge who jokingly acknowledged that Samsung's tablets aren't considered as "cool" as the iPad, so Apple can't claim they copy its design directly. The joke turned on Apple at the appeal now, though, as Cupertino will have to run ads in various newspapers and magazines with national reach now that Samsung wasn't found infringing on its patents, and also leave a similar message on its website for six months...

Screen shots of the ads and website will be live throughout reddit and Google Plus within twenty four hours after Apple complies, I bet. I'm looking forward to this.
Also loling at Mxy's statement that you don't mess with a rich company like Apple. Are you threatening the UK courts on Apple's behalf, Mxy?

I'm not threatening UK's unfair courts and their justice system. If Apple wanted to, they could easily embarrass the UK courts and turn their judgment right on their head.

the marketing geniuses at Apple will find a way to to actually make Apple look good, I mean that Galaxy Tab is not as cool s the ipad or nowhere has that support that ipad has, so yes the apology will make Samsung look bad trust me. if something Apple knows is how to advertise...

Except, IIRC, the content of the apology must be okayed by the court and Samsung.
77. gallitoking (Posts: 4704; Member since: 17 May 2011)
not by Samsung only by the courts and clearly states that the Galaxy looks nothing like the unique desing of the ipad

And still it's losing market share down from 80+ to 52 now in US as per pew survey ...

Apple doesn't care about market share you do know that
81. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
no now that there loosing it ifans claim they dont care, just like everything else. when apple are beat in an aspect they were bragging about it suddenly becomes irrelevant like thickness, screen res etc

If they don't then why release iPAD mini? I am sure you would have something more stupid to say now :)
79. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
why are you so committed to apple, its actually beyond a joke now. you really do provide eveidence that apple is almost a cult
''unique desing of the ipad''
you mean a slate with a screen on the front and camera on the back...wow my mind is blown by this unique design.....especially when apple claims everyone's copying this design so it cant be unique can it?
just stop this mindless obsessive loyalty fanboyism
