So the patent is invalid

I respect your view but well sir, I used to see it your way but I'm afraid it's much more complicated than I thought it was.

I predict it will be a wash....a tie, so to speak - that in itself would make APPLE mad.

i dont see how there is a massive blow if samsung wins. It would be status quo like it has been. If apple wins, expect big and bad changes.

considering they were caught making shell companies to try to secretly partner with Apple and share patents to "take down" Android.. they are probably rooting for Apple. Dont forget, both companies have a "non clone, non sue" agreement as well.

Ok the US Patent Office gave Samsung a patent about mobile devices sending our pictures via email? What kind of patent is that? I swear my gripes are mainly with this wacked system.

It is an important patent that actually has roots in technology... but you think somehow that patent is worse than a rectangle shape or icons?

Your troll level is at level 99 right now.

To say that Samsung makes crappy devices is a bulls--t lie. Have you tried using the Galaxy S2? Note? Galaxy S3? All three devices are the most popular phones to be released in android history without a doubt.

I have one question for you, how's that two year design that the 4S is rocking treating you?

Its not copying when the design was yours in the first place. Apple copied from Sony and the Samsung F700. Apple has admitted that they take other peoples ideas and make them "better". Apple is the king of all copycats. Thats what they do...thats what they have always done, only now they cannot keep up. There is no innovation behind their criphone anymore. It is a piece of garbage that is overpriced and underperforming when compared to high end and even mid grade Android devices from any manufacturer. Maybe Apple should take all their money that they are spending on lawyers and use it for R&D so they can make something that might catch up to the quality of Samsung and HTC Android devices.
