Except they haven't got the money yet !!! Maybe they never will, as Samsung is appealling and wanting the case thrown out altogether as the jury was biased and didn't tell the truth. The name of iPhone was actually stolen from Cisco, who owned the name, but Steve Jobs just went ahead and used it anyway, and didn't pay a thing for it!! So much for Steve Jobs and his fighting for intellectual property rights. Apple only sees that as applying to other companies - not Apple!! Despite all that, Apple has now lost the crown for Mobile Phone world domination, which now belongs to Android (mostly Samsung as they have the major market for their Smartphones) Probably the US is their only market that they have more than 50% share, even Australia is now Android's market and the tablet market is their next target, along with help from Windows new products in the Smartphone & Tablet Windows 8 products.
