While Judge Koh has changed the court's schedule to push back Apple's motions for preliminary injunctions on 8 devices to December 6th from September 20th, the Cupertino based manufacturer wants Samsung not to be able to sell infringing devices during the holiday shopping season...

Of course I can tell which tablet is which. Look at the Samsung logo plus the screen on the Galaxy tab isn't wasted by just displaying 5 icons per row.

I just wonder if all this will ever stop and we are allowed to just enjoy innovative technology that will make our lives easier. I'm embarrassed for Apple. They are loosing our support as Apple products lovers, bcos if they keep winning, they will not have competitors, and without competitors, there is no one to compete with, which means you dont bring your A game into the field (with your USP), which means less exiting innovations.

It could have ended. But, nine morons let it continue on.

@SlimSoulja86: You have the Apple profile pic only because it seems to add more weight to your anti-apple comments. You might as well put your fandroid profile pic back on. Fraud.

How is he a fraud when he is correct it is embarasing that apple keeps getting into lawsuits. He supports apple but dose not want the compition to go away cause it will mean they don't have to work as hard to show up the compition each year. it also tarnishes there public image as well. Apple the great patent troll is that what you want your company to be known as a patatent troll or how about anti competative. i can understand the fact why they are sueing but not how they got some of there patents in the first place such as a patent on rounded edges and swipe to unlock etc.

You dont have to worship and kneel before Apple and their products to like and use em.
Slim is an example of an Apple, iPhone user....I have a feeling you would be an example of an iFan.
57. serious9010 (Posts: 254; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
Nope. I just dislike the way he tries to make his arguments more valid. It is like if I were to say to you that I don't even use Apple products, just to add weight to my comment.
I have a reason to believe, he is infact an Android user trying to sneakily hate on Apple.
61. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
You do know that even users of iproducts are starting to realise that apple is a rotten company ...
So, he might not be lying, he is just smart

NGL I am an iPhone owner.
NGL I dont like apples practices and business ethics (let alone iOS)
I sympathize with SlimSoulja, and commend him on being brave enough to use that as his avatar amongst so many raging Android users.

only a moron can't differentiate the two. put "i" on that moron.
34. serious9010 (Posts: 254; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
That is not true. Sure, people interested in technology can differentiate the two, but people who don't give a f**k about tech mostly can't and not because they're stupid, they just see two extremely similar tabs infront of them.

SO they can see the BIG AZZ PICTURE of a APPLE on the FRONT or BACK of the TABLET or Phone?.
SO when the buy a TV they don't have a clue who the manufacture of the TV, Car, Refridgerator, Blu-ray player?
Dang people are STUPID!..maybe they should be ban from buying food too (box of cereal can be confusing) SMH

So, what your trying to say is that all tablets are the same? They have large screens, tiny bezels and rectangle designs. Also, those average Joes you refer to, know the difference between Samsung and Apple for sure. They buy a Samsung because they want a Samsung, they buy an Apple because they like fruits.
43. redsox420 (Posts: 90; Member since: 27 Aug 2012)
Apple used that same analogy in court. They blamed the consumers who bought products @ BestBuy who couldn't tell them apart. They (consumer) thought they were buying the others product. I lay blame completely on the sales people and the buyer for not verifying what you A: Want and B: What you are paying for. Consumers are dumb.. They like shiny and mesmerizing without doing their own homework.
Its no wonder why most people end up complaining about their choices, they fail to do their homework before their purchase. I can tell them apart easily. Apple uses a 3d effect dock on every iphoney and imaxipad, plus they aren't even the same physical size and the icons give it away
45. picka_vi_materina (Posts: 174; Member since: 21 Nov 2011)
It says Samsung on the device consumers bought. They sure as hell know how to read and what company Samsung is.
59. serious9010 (Posts: 254; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
I still think the aforementioned tablets are too similar.
63. picka_vi_materina (Posts: 174; Member since: 21 Nov 2011)
I still say all humans look like me. Shall I patent my design and sue everyone that looks like a human being?

All people in the World must boycot and stop buying Apple is copycat company. Apple is trying to destroy Samsung smartphone business while currently Apple have no new iPhone to sale. Samsung must stop doing business with crazy rotten Apple.

I think a huge ruling that just came would say otherwise.
50. tedkord (Posts: 11896; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Let's just wait and see how much of the ruling withstands appeal. I wouldn't be surprised to see Judge Koh invalidate a good portion of it. It obvious from her warnings to Apple prior to the end of the trial that she saw merit in some of Samsung's defense, as she thought it would end badly for both sides.

It's amazing people are this delusional. Samsung copied Apple. Get over it.
60. tedkord (Posts: 11896; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
No more than Apple copied LG (Prada), Palm (grid of icons with several docked at the bottom), Neonode (side to unlock), the iPad design (Fidler's tablet) and so on.
65. bucky (Posts: 2609; Member since: 30 Sep 2009)
There is a 100+ page book that lets you know who copied who. Samsung even as far as to hire the same girl from apples commercials. Ever seen a Samsung store? Looks very familiar to another store but I just can't put my finger on it...
I love my sgs2 as much as my iPhone but Samsung need to work on a different image. Even htc users will tell you that.

How about 4:3 vs. 16:9 (aka the Sammy tablet is taller and not as wide as iPad) form factor? It will be interesting to see how Koh decides the Rule 50 motions. Decisions for Sammy will indicate the judge doesn't agree with the jury verdict, which won't be good for Apple's chances on appeal.

So you think as long as it has the Samsung logo on it, it doesn't infringe anything? So they could literally just take an iPhone, put the Samsung logo on it, and you think it wouldn't be guilty of anything? Brilliant.

Samsung's Tab looks nothing like an iPad. Plus the people have a very nasty habit of displaying the app drawers and they conveniently ignore the Galaxy Tab's home-screen. If that argument were even valid, every tablet in the market looks like an iPad. I suggest you use them both and see for yourself.
69. jroc74 (Posts: 6013; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Exactly. The fact that EVERY comparison pic I see has the app drawer open on Galaxy tablets....makes any look alike, copy claims invalid to me.
2. u-suck-more (Posts: 529; Member since: 26 Aug 2011)
if Apple wants things their way, they should at least learn to WAIT. nth ever comes easy Apple!
3. ddeath (Posts: 169; Member since: 14 Apr 2012)
Maybe they think everyone is an iDiot and iLliterate in US of A and thus cannot read what is printed on the Samsung tablet and the box that states Samsung Galaxy Tab.
