Apple v. Samsung begins today, but don't expect Perry Mason-like court case

0. phoneArena 30 Jul 2012, 11:24 posted on

With the long awaited Apple v. Samsung trial beginning today, don't expect this to be like Perry Mason where a piece of evidence is cleverly admitted into the case forcing a last second admission from a courtroom spectator...

How is posting that someone is deluded stereotyping (especially when that person has a reputation for making stuff up to suit their respective position)? Stereotyping generally involves statements made about a group of people and extending the stereotype to individual group members. Perhaps you could answer my question to taco - why hasn't Apple's attorneys filed a motion for summary judgement if the case against Sammy is so strong?

You must've misunderstood my post. I wasn't talking about you stereotyping, I was talking about taco. Apparently, anything that look similar to Apple products are copying Apple, despite the design having a longer history.

Samsung's F700 had one single home button and round corners either right when the iPhone released or a few months before..

You mean to tell me they had to keep designing phones exactly like the F700 because Apple released the iPhone?

Hogwash.

If Apple really wants to sue Samsung for copying, why not start with the F700?

Thank GOD Apple isnt in the HDTV industry.....or the game console industry, or the car industry...or [insert industry here]

Explain then why did Apple try to sue Motorola ....for the XOOM....for hardware?

Where does it look like an iPad, the front? So.....Apple is trying to patent black borders, borders widths....

Touchwiz does look very Apple-ish. But when Samsung has a phone that resembles the iPhone from years ago....how come they cant be seen as building off of that? They cant have a smaller home button because Apple called dibs?

Don't worry, you probably won't notice most of them. They sources usually go unnoticed, because who knows if any of it was really valid coming from pro-Apple sites.

This. I had a patient in my office a few days ago telling me about his new phone. I asked what it was and this is how the conversation went:

Patient: "Yeah, I got this new... I don't know... One something?"
Me: "Oh, the One X! That's a sweet phone."
Patient: "Yeah! It's the one Apple was trying to ban!!!"

Yes. The fact that Apple was trying to stop the phone from being sold actually sold this guy on the phone.

Thanks Apple! Keep up the good work you f**king idiots!

Didn't even know the name of the phone and you attack Apple users for being uneducated.

Taco,

I never said Apple users were uneducated, this was also a 65 year old man we are talking about.

Regardless, you are (as always) an idiot.

'The sands of justice move much more slowly than how the courtroom process is pictured on television'.

I think it's safe to say that 'the sands of justice' move more like an iPhone on a 3G bandwidth.

Oh it will move fast, Apple has already paid off its former designer, Judge Koh, and very shortly, any/all of the jury...

I expect half or more of the jury to be iPhone users, and seeing as only 3 iPhone users I know have even the slightest knowledge beyond what they get spoon fed to them by Apple employee's or other MAC users who are ignorant of CHOICES beyond their Walled Garden (TM)... well at least we know whos willing to buy whomever they have to, in order to win that is...

More like an iPhone on the EDGE network. Regardless of the trial outcome, there will be an appeal. This ain't over by a long shot.

I think Samsung is in a lot of trouble. It's already plain to see that Samsung copied Apple. Now with the evidence that's leaked out over the past few days it's looking even worse. Along with that Samsung has already been reprimanded for destroying evidence.

This could turn into an overwhelming defeat for Samsung.

Honestly, who the hell cares.

Apple is digging their own grave with this lawsuit nonsense. Anyone who isn't totally blind can see that.

Bring it on!

See how easy it is to take sides.

Well I see an obvious evolution of slab based phones..as with all tech everything gets sleeker and more streamlined as tech gets smaller..these documents show that apple were not 1st with touchscreen devices and that other companies were planning on moving onto larger screen phones..just cause apple were 1sr to make it popular does not give them the right to be the one to only make touchscreen phones...as you can Samsung had plans of a touchscreen phone with a single button. How can Samsung have copied the iPhone when it didn't exist?..as I have believed all along the jury will hopefully use common sense and see that apple were not the only company thinking about touchscreen devices.

How is that? Apple is winning lawsuits against android and Samsung in particular.

You're choosing to ignore the evidence

24. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)


Which is? From the evidence shown so far all it shows is that apple were not the only company designing large touchscreen phones.
