It does matter, because in most instances there is one side that won't stop even if the other does. Now, if Samsung were to drop all their suits against Apple and even proclaim that Apple can use all their IP free, do you believe for even a second Apple would reciprocate. I believe they would file more suits that same day.

I think ur wrong Ted. Sammy would have an agreement in writing, and recording before they'd agree to that. Think about what u just said bro.

I know that Sammy wouldn't just drop everything. I said if. My point was IF that happened, Apple would just sue more. IF the reverse happened, and Apple dropped all suits, I believe Samsung would also.

To add, the reason why it world happen this way is because Samsung are suing as a defense. Apple are suing to eliminate competition and stifle innovation.

Yes, it is! Grow up!

It matters because the one who started it most likely won't back down and will go even further if everyone submitted to the aggressor.

These are all rectangles. Apple apparently owns the rectangle.

I feel bad for the schools, I wonder if I will get a fee because my kids are learning about rectangle shapes in school. Hopefully the school they will attend will have settled with Apple by then

I am sure Samsung TV has icon somewhere buried in the system menu that look like apple icons.

Do include their TV, fridge, washing machines, oven, electric toothbrush, AA/AAA batterys, SSD, HDD DVD, Blueray player, HiFI audio system, printers and the list goes on.

'Litigate, do not innovate'

Apple clearly placed priority on litigate, their engineers, their CEO, their executives going in and out of court room. Everyone is only given 24 hours regardless of how much money you made. Google avoid litigate to innovate and the result speak for itself.

Honestly, all of this needs to stop. Not only does it look bad on both their parts, but it hurts the consumers too...

Agree with emulating Nokia, but disagree with their being "ready to die". They're fighting tooth and nail to stay alive, and doing a fine job of it.

You fight fire with fire. Samsung will bury Apple in the ground and promptly stomp all over it.

Ha kam lehorgecha - hashkem lehorgo - Kill the one who rises to kill you - before he does so.

This is WAR, gentlemen. Forced upon us by Apple's greed for money and control.

Dude please shutup. Iran/Iraq was war. The war in Afghanistan is a war. This is two greedy companies with apple seemingly the greedier of the two suing each other. Grow up man.

You think that this is just about money? What about consumer choice? Apple BANNED the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy nexus.

This isn't just about money. This is about the nature of the OSs which will power our mobile devices - a closed OS or an open OS. Tyranny vs Freedom when it comes to end user control.

Dude wether u know it or not I agree with u bro. When your not being a sensationalist u actually make some of the best points I've read. Shouldn't have told u to shutup, and I apologize for that. However this is hardly a war bro, we the consumer do suffer from this cuz apple has to,scramble for components, and Sammy is slowly losing their biggest client. No one wins in this...once again my apologies for telling u to shutup.

Well this isn't obviously a war in the traditional sense. Also - in any war - there are no winners either.

Regardless - this IS a conflict between Apple and Samsung - and the outcome of this conflict WILL affect the nature of our mobile devices in the future, if not outright set it completely.

And it's ok, darkkjedii :)

Btw I think that I finally figured out why am I so angry with Apple on a personal level. They made a buttery smooth OS with very little problems and crashes which ran on gorgeous looking hardware.


They had to completely screw it all up due to their insane obsession over control and closed systems.

It's like you have the most beautiful-looking women, top model of 2012, but she is as dumb as a rubber duck.

It's simply infuriating.

Cheers. :D

They are behaving more like a spoiled rich couple fighting over the last piece of silver.

At one time, before Samsung started making quality android handsets, this was a great great relationship for the both of them. Samsung provided the quality of parts that Apple was demanding. Although I am sure the monetary arrangement was in Apples favor. Like most good INNOVATIVE companies, Samsung said to themselves, "we can make our own and keep more of the profits". And they did, much too Apple's dislike.

What happened next was the Galaxy S. For its time, it was a viable alternative to Apple. Behind the scenes Steve Jobs was livid! How dare they! We (Apple) let them ,make our products then they screw us like this! How dare they use that "freeware" of a platform. This is about the time of his "going thermo-nuclear on their ass" statement.

From this point on, the relationship has gotten more and more distraught. I really believe Apple blames Samsung for giving credibility to the Android platform. Prior to Samsung's involvement it was just really little old Motorola, HTC, and Verizon adopting it. They felt they weren't a threat. Once Samsung got into the ring with the Galaxy S, only then did all the major carriers begin to take it seriously. I am speaking of US carriers of course.

The rest of the story we know already. The court battles ensued. The best and only course of action left, is the total disolvement of the business relationship. In the long run I think this will fair better for Samsung then Apple, but this has yet to play out. Let the soap opera continue......

Technically T-Mobile and HTC had the Android platform before Verizon with the G1. Motorola, the Droid label, and Verizon made it popular and the "cool" alternative that did more.

Otherwise, yes.
