Apple seeks another $179 million from Samsung for patent infringement payoff
Earlier this month, Samsung was ordered to pay Apple $548 million to end the first patent infringement case between the two rivals. But Samsung has decided to ask the Supreme Court to hear the case, claiming that current patent law is not suitable for modern times. Now, Apple has another bill it wants Samsung to pay.

Five devices that Apple cited in the first patent infringement suit remained on sale after the verdict was reached. As a result, Apple wants to get paid for sales of those devices dating from the day after the first verdict was announced on August 24th 2012, to present. Apple took the amount of the verdict that each of the five devices was responsible for, and computed how much it should receive for each additional unit that was rung up after Judge Koh's gavel came down. After about $1 million in interest, the additional total that Apple is seeking from Samsung is $179 million. On Wednesday, Apple filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asking it to force Samsung to pay them that amount.

The five devices listed by Apple's court filing include the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. Apple says that Samsung owes it $6.14 million for additional sales of the device following the verdict. Other models cited by Apple are the Samsung Epic 4G Touch ($97 million), Samsung Galaxy S II T-Mobile ($74.7 million), Samsung DROID Charge ($620,000) and the Samsung Galaxy Prevail ($167,500).

Will there ever be an end to this? Or is Apple v. Samsung destined to continue forever, as long as even just one lawyer is breathing.

Money certainly does speak when you are the best Company in the world.

Just stating facts.

I'm a fanboy for stating facts?

Google "Best Company in the World" and tell me if you don't see Apple.

It actually makes someone not a fanboy for refusing to let their bias get in the way of factual information.

Being the most valuable company doesn't make them best. Justin Bieber sells over a million album copies, so does that make that POS best singer? A kardarshian app crashes app store, is that app great by any means? They're best at attracting blind $heep$ thats all.

Justin Beiber is the most valuable singer? No

Is the kardashian app the most valuable app? No

What a stupid logic. Apple is the world's most valuable company because their history proves to be consistent, in terms of company performance, brand value, and customer satisfaction. You'd be an idiot to think otherwise.

I understand you hate Apple more than anything in the world, but don't let your bias make you oblivious to reality. Apple is hands down the #1 company in the world. Even Google would tell you that.

"because their history proves to be consistent, in terms of company performance, brand value, and customer satisfaction."
Clearly you don't even know the history about your favourite company yourself. Check Apple's history before going on iRampage.

By your logic, then McDonalds is the best because its the most valuable fast food company.
Your comments clearly shows who's the real biased guy around here.

Which fast food chain is more valuable than McDonalds? What point are you trying to make? Are you stating this to say just because Apple is the most valuable company that means it doesn't make the best products? If that's the case, you a freaking moron because I never said they did.

Podrick, aka ordinary, make your point clear next time. And Apple isn't my favorite company. But I do love giving credit where it's due, unlike idiots like you.

Hope you are enjoying your Christmas, cuh.

Apparently, it also speaks when you're the scummiest company in the world, too. Apple proves that.
