The statements included in their apology which are other than the UK court decisions. I mean, yes they are true but it was scripted in such a manner that it made Apple look good, whereas put Sammy's name in the mud (The Germany verdict which was mentioned in the last paragraph)

I mean, this was supposed to be an apology. Does it look like one? Nope.

And what the judge asked was an apology.. not what Apple posted lol. Trying to justify that makes you look like a tool.

-Judge Koh Decided the judges should not listen to anything outside of the presented information, and that included other country cases

-what happened in US is not something that matters in UK when it comes to this legal WOES so apple is telling people information that's out of jurisdiction

-If you rob a bank in NY and did not robbed one in London should London put you in jail?

-the statement is supposed to be an apology not a appleinsider article, you don't say to "I'm sorry for hitting your dog with my car, but is your fault for not respecting the fence height "

-yeah apple won, so what? its on appeal court, right now the chances of Samsung winning has drastically increased, plus they have more time

what Apple did was as clever as your name and DEFINITELY not a smart way to handle a COURT's decision.

The order was to post that Samsung did not copy. Instead, Apple wrote that the UK courts rolled they didn't, then spent the next 70% of the essay stating that Samsung did copy. Since it was ruled that Samsung did not copy, statements that they did are untrue.

Apple did not site their source for their comments and should have gave the Judge credit. :) The Judge should sue Apple for plagerism. lol

If you consider that an apology, I hope to never meet you.....cuz if you tried to pass off something like that to me as an apology.....it would not be pretty...

Now that's what Thermo-Nuclear strategy gets Apple in return ... nothing can be more disgraceful for most valuable company if they have any shame left that is ... ?

It's like you're forcing the pro-apple trolling. Doesn't even seem genuine.

Saying that "Apple's marketing is the best in the world" is acknowledging that you are falling for the scam of them selling you a cheap product with few features for a premium price based on advertising. Ignorance is bliss.

Yes but the difference here is this was a legal ruling from a court. That's like a stalker violating a ruling to stay so far away from a woman, and then saying he only did it to say he was sorry for stalkings her.

Personally I think the judge was being lenient by not fining them for noncompliance.

Now we just have to wait and see what the consequences for Apple's dumbassery are. I hope that besides having to rewrite the apology they get slapped with something else.

A 3-month sales ban would be cool. Almost impossible, but cool. "Oh, you want an ipod for Christmas? Have to go to france!"

The judge should spell out what the apology should say. If they don't do it word for word they should be fined a couple billion dollars for making the judicial system look like a joke.

"Apple Inc. is legally obligated to post the following prefabricated apology, which it does not agree with:"

It's like politics...the non-apology apology. "We apologize to anyone who may have been offended by what we said, but are not at all sorry about."

Business is business...i applaud them for doing such a thing. I am amused by how these companies poke at each other like Samsung's cheap ads that target iPhone holders and now apple's cheap move...

very different - Samsung's ads has some truth in them and shows the abilities of their products over what APPLE cannot do. Apple was ordered by a court Judge to apologize and is basically doing so like a little spoiled brat.

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.
