Apple Geniuses, ban a discontinued tablet. Enjoy your victory while we enjoy the Tab 2 and wait for the Note 10.1

they want to ban the original 10.1 Tab? go ahead! that tab is not really a punchline in samsung's arsenal.. let's wait for Note 10.1.. anyway, samsung's strong point is always its Galaxy S line of phones..

Umm, is this really an accomplishment for Apple? Samsung will likely not be affected by this in any way.

Not putting phonearena down just stating 90 percent of their articles are about apple lawsuits, it was a joke anyway. Of course if you weren't such a tight ass fan boy yourself you'd realize that.

In a way that is true. I read the Steve Jobs bio and it does say that the graphical interface first used in the Apple I computer was actually stolen from another company. And that is a fact.

I think they stole that from Xerox

31. roscuthiii (Posts: 1785; Member since: 18 Jul 2010)


Yep, stolen from Xerox PARC... many of the iDefenders will claim that Apple paid for use of the GUI, but what was actually paid for was a tour. A tour! Jobs & Co. saw the GUI and ran with it. Unfortunately for Xerox they did not realize they had a valid suit at the time, were still trying to work out licensing with Apple, or just didn't have the resources allocated for legal action (not sure which), but they didn't file a suit in time.

Yeah that's not what happened. They did go on a tour. Then they made a deal to license technology in exchange for investing in Apple. As soon as Apple went public, that investment paid off. So no, nothing was "stolen" (besides the fact you can't "steal" an idea in the first place), they gave it away.

Oh yeah that's who it was. That's just wrong on so many levels. Especially considering the way they handle themselves legally nowadays. . .

If Apple's iPhones and iPads are allowed into the U.S. after it was ruled that they infringed on Motorola's patent I will lose all hope in the court system. It would be completely unfair for Apple to get infringing Samsung products banned but not for Motorola to get infringing Apple products banned.

There's been an adjudication as in someone with legal authority discerned the facts.

jove39: do you not understand English -- did you not learn the legal term "infringe". Samsung was using Apple's IP without Apple's permission. This shouldn't be a hard concept to understand.

- Multitasking is stupid on phones
- 4G is overrated
- 3.5 inches is the perfect screen size, any bigger than that and the phone becomes unusable
- if you use stylus you blew it
- iPad-style tablet computers with smaller 7in screens would be “dead on arrival”

All this injuction stuff is getting old! Apple just needs to settle down and stop relying on their lawyers to try to get rid of competition instead of just trying to make competitive devices. As of now, Apple is living off of loyal customers and supposed patents. But if it's gonna stay at/near the top of this market, it better start showing some real innovation. Starting with the iPhone 5.

Why are these Judges quick to do what MS and Apple ask, but do not want to enforce Motorola ban on Iphone and Xbox/window?

Motorola has won several bans against these companies.

Lots of trolling here as usual. This is a moral victory for Apple since Samsung shouldn't be allowed to blatantly copy. The judge made the right decision.

Says the fanboys who are using a phone that can't do any of that.

"iPad-style tablet computers with smaller 7in screens would be “dead on arrival”" Yeah and somehow Apple has 7 inch iPads on testing.

This is almost like us fandroids saying "apps are overated". But we can't really say that since most good developers are already developing for Android too.

Yes, moral victory. Guess even the judge knows that the iPhone 5 is going to fail along with iOS6 and she'd rather just allow the ban on a discontinued product so Apple can feel better about themselves than having to deal with more of this crap when the iPhone 5 comes out and Apple sues Samsung for creating a better phone.

...because Samsung is blatantly copying. At all. How are they copying? The Galaxy Tab is NOTHING like the iPad. The operating systems are NOTHING ALIKE. In your mind, anything that has little square tiles is copying. Apple gets a thousand patents a day.

All consumers actually lose out here, Apple customers included. This simply reduces the need for Apple to innovate at a competitive rate. Granted, Id say that Sansung have probably already moved on from this Tab.

The only people who have made any win in this game are lawyers and Apple shareholders, Fanboyism aside.

So much butthurt by apple that they are trolling themselves. How can you steal a design thats f**king generic. So the person who made the first car should start suing every other car company out there? What the f**k Tim, why you so mad? Apple's aim is to deprive americans of any samsung device out there....cause they know samsung is on their tail, one of their top competitors. Those poor americans....Forgive them father for they know not how awesome samsung is.
