No, that's fighting fire with fire. If you were to get attacked, you probably want to get a few good jabs in yourself, right? That's what Samsung is doing with LTE.

In other words....you are saying you shouldnt defend yourself....

Right.

I can guarantee if you worked for Samsung, you wouldnt be talking like this.

Blindly following doesnt make it right.

Not only are you saying Samsung should not defend themselves, your saying they should just forget that whole getting sued for a billion dollars thing never even happend. If you were Samsung, would you just send a nice fruit basket to Cupertino to stop this thermonuclear war?

if Samsung has LTE patents that APPLE has used, then they should sue - remember, APPLE started this.

Lol, this is incredible talk about having the gall to watch a court of law in the eye and say I'm saying what I want dare you to try and stop me. Then we have those Apple heads who Apple has been selling air come in here high of that same Apple branded air and talking more nonsense. This is what stupidity and blind devotion does to a human, guess that makes them livestock by definition eh?

Apple is showing how incredibly arrogant they can be, sounds like a trademark of deluded Americans drunk of patriotism and have no idea that half the products they used aren't even made in good ol' US of A. Isn't life grand, humility is lost on a lot of people and at apples's level seems to be lost on grand scale. Good luck in court, this will obviously cause ripples with other judges as you can't offend the Law without the others hearing about it.

Okay, seriously, you are now a full-time troll it seems. Apple hit rock bottom so hard, you can't even pull up justifiable points to defend it.

As I said earlier, they violated a judges ruling, and treat it like a joke. How can they ask the courts for anything when they don't comply with the judges ruling when it's not in their favor. For the most profitiable company in the world, their actions are that of a child. When adults are subject to a legal ruling, if they don't comply there are consequences, Apple acts like the rules don't apply to them. If I were an apple fan I would be embarrassed rather than happy right now.

when Apple won vs Samsung Apple haters behaved like a child and to seem it seems absurd to have to apologize for anything.. give them a fine and move on but to apologize, thats is too much and I support Apple for standing their ground

no you support apple what ever they do, they could slap you in the face and burn your house down and you would praise them. your the ultimate deluded ifan, the definition of brainwashed.

there not standing there ground they thought they could do as they please and were above the courts decision. all down to there arrogance.

id love the courts to make them do a tv ad where they say sorry and admit samsung didnt copy properly

It's good to support but taking a stand to defend any entity (individual/corporate) whose actions tantamount to "Contempt Of Court" is as criminal as the Contempt action if not more ... but Apple is into full time profession of insulting everyone's intelligence so they thought even judge is a d*ckhead so lets insult him ... that misfired/backfired. Contempt of court is a non bailable offense in many countries. Surprising Apple has the cheek to go back and ask for 14 days.

But yes Apple perhaps made a mistake .. they should have said we will pay $1 to Samsung but not "Deface" our website. $1 is what apple is hooked to when it comes to evaluating anything that's not theirs ... when it's theirs they unilaterally peg it at 10 times the value ... isn't it?

Actually, considering how much time I have spent in school - my opinion is far more valuable than G-King's whose opinion is always for APPLE.

He does have a point though. Apple's lawsuit put the Galaxy Tab in the headlines in a way it hadn't been previously. And since Samsung was found not to be infringing on the iPad design in the US, sales can only go up from here. More competition benefits all of us... Apple just has a funny way of creating it.

I've just seen the new apology in a newspaper. It's very very low key. You can't even tell the apology is from Apple.
