Certain evidence in Apple-Samsung case was skewed toward Apple

Recently released documents from the U.S. District Court that oversaw the Apple-Samsung patent trial suggest that some of the evidence might have been skewed to favor Apple; the latter decided to pick certain phrases from long quotes that backed its position...

After 8 months of owning my galaxy note now I know it is Samsung. I thought I bought apple note. Come on has anybody bought Samsung phones in mistake he thought it was apple.

Exactly. I walked into a Samsung store and bought the SGS3 because I thought it was an iPhone. :)

Wait so you're telling me that my Galaxy S 3 wasn't made by Apple? I'm going to sue this Samsung who made such a great knockoff.

Wait, what?! That phone with a bigger AMOLED screen with a Samsung logo in front is not an iPhone?!? Damn you Samsung!
28. PhenomFaz posted on 09 Oct 2012, 07:50 11
Yeah Samsung made a knock-off that actually performs better than the original iPhone!
How dare they make it better, more functional and simply more awesome than the original!
Apple should sue Samsung for pure awesomeness :)

Ive bought one tiny and one big sh*t thought it was an iPhone and an iPad...

Yup-per. Didn't Sammy negotiate the rights to build (and sell) versions of the iPhone with screen sizes larger than 4 inches? It was all part of the deal where Sammy agreed to supply Apple with the chipset for the iToys.

Really????? Are you blind....GS3 has Samsung right on top the screen....hello that's a pretty good sign that it's not an iPhone.

I can understand that an average consumer might think that an iPhone was mistaken for a Samsung phone although they are very different in most design cues but seeing the Samsung logo and still thinking that it was an iPhone and purchasing it was really a foolish

The jury is biased so they didn't care much about the facts anyway.

what samsung needed were good attorneys/lawyers. That's all.
6. KingKurogiii posted on 09 Oct 2012, 02:07 16
wow...why did no one speak up about this? it's like Samsung's Attorneys slept through the whole trial. _-_
10. Doakie posted on 09 Oct 2012, 02:24 9
Funny. I was thinking the exact same thing. Samsung should have spent $250 million on lawyers...
26. protozeloz posted on 09 Oct 2012, 07:29 4
actually if no mistaken they were not allowed to do so either to call on an extra witness or show other devices and proof
30. remixfa posted on 09 Oct 2012, 08:12 7
they werent allowed to call on Shin or present certain very obvious pieces of evidence, but when this quote was read to the jury, samsung's lawyers should have still stood up and called BS. They had the trial stacked against them unfairly, but they also made some pretty big bonehead mistakes for a law firm representing such a big client.
32. parkwaydr posted on 09 Oct 2012, 08:29 4
I agree Remix, I also feel koh should not have been allowed to oversee this case because of her ties to the firm that represented Apple.
34. networkdood posted on 09 Oct 2012, 08:49 3
park hit the nail on the head...OWWW!!
Yeah, having a judge oversee this trial - one that has ties to APPLE - that in itself is grounds for a re-trial. What is wrong with our system of justice for overlooking something so obvious such as this?
37. parkwaydr posted on 09 Oct 2012, 09:08 3
The problem is that we as country have become disgustingly greedy, money outweighs everything, even justice. While I don't want to sound like a conspiracy freak, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple handed out some checks along the way in this one. The sad truth is that our once great nation is so corrupt even our candidates for office are both crooks.
39. ZEUS.the.thunder.god posted on 09 Oct 2012, 10:58 2
I am from India and feel the same way. but we as consumers can bring the change. thats why I hate apple from my heart and soul.

Who's the real copy cat now? Apple can't even make their own statements now, can they?

Skewed? You mean like this article's picture, which shows an iPhone opened to its home screen, and the Galaxy phone opened to its app drawer?
I suppose I should give some credit, you at least showed a size difference, while most who show them side by side down scale them Galaxy to make them look more alike.
Of course the evidence was skewed. That's what lawyers do. If you're looking for ethical behavior, you don't look to corporate lawyers.
25. someones4 posted on 09 Oct 2012, 07:25 2
so obvious. like the president of a highly successful multinational conglomerate to ask his employees to blatantly copy something. shame on apple for blindsiding the entire world
33. networkdood posted on 09 Oct 2012, 08:46 2
Blame this on the lawyers on both sides - lawyers for apple doctored the evidence and the lawyers for Samsung did not catch it...for some odd reason....of course, Steve Jobs is all excited because his side cheated to win...
40. ddeath posted on 09 Oct 2012, 11:52 2
Sometimes I wonder when the lawyers talk about people mistakenly buying a Samsung phone thinking it was an iPhone due to the similar basic rectangular rounded corner design of all touchscreen phones, are they saying the consumers are so dumb that they cannot read what's printed on the phone or the box of the phone? And the jury actually agrees? The judge never even questioned this? Then I wonder who are the dumb ones. I think we need Judge Judy.

I said the same thing when the trial was happening. They basically say that people are to stupid to tell the difference between an iphone and anything else. Yet at the same time they want those stupid people to buy their product. I can understand if you only got a second or two to look at it to not be able to tell the difference, I've done that myself with devices used on TV or in movies. But when you go to buy a device, especially one that comes with a 2 year contract, that you don't just pick up the first things that looks remotely like what you want. The first time they power it up they'll see the Samsung logo instead of Apple's. And it's not like your stuck with it if you bought the wrong one. You've got 14 to 30 days to return it (depending on carrier).
If Apple really believes all these potential customers are that stupid, then maybe those stupid people shouldn't have a smartphone.

The same thing goes for the tablets. Apple lawyers holding the tablet from afar and Samsung lawyers cannot tell which is which. Hell, can you tell which LCD/LED TV brand it is if you stand from a distance when most flat screen TV looks the same, a black rectangle? And people may buy the tablet thinking it is an iPad when there is a Samsung logo on the tablet, no Apple logo on the back, Samsung logo that flashes at you on the screen when you power on for the first time, Samsung logo on the box, no home button etc.? Jesus, are consumers treated as intellectually challenged or illiterate?
