Chart shows Apple's case in a nutshell; Samsung designer says she did not copy Apple's icons
posted by Alan F. / Aug 14, 2012, 4:45 PM
she did not copy Apple when designing them. She added that she had considered using the design of a cell phone or a smartphone for the phone icon, but decided on a traditional phone because it seemed to be more easily recognized by users.
Wang had started working at Samsung as an intern and is the first person from Samsung's Korean operations to take the stand. Trying to show the court that other companies besides Apple are obsessive about design, she told the court how hundreds of designers from around the world had worked on the design of the Samsung Galaxy S. Wang testified that during this time period, she slept only 2 to 3 hours a night. In the TMI department, she told the jury that she had just given birth during that time period but couldn't breastfeed regularly because of her work load.

that's not just a korean thing. That happens a lot in america too. Dont get too high and mighty. Many of your "higher ups" and leads work extreme hrs. I used to clock 100 hrs a week running a business. I opened a new build and averaged 3-4 hrs of sleep a night for the first month or so and the rest was at the location to get it up, running, employees hired and trained, inspections, ect. You do what needs to be done to get the product out on time.

Yes, because the testimony of an employee of the company on trial is MUCH more convincing than the treasure trove of internal documents that state that the iPhone is the model for the company's phones after 2007.

She had a baby but couldn't breast feed because she was working on the Galaxy S. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is.

Let's hope that justice will prevail and the yellow brand will get the punishment it deserves.

Now Samsung must cut the life supports, stop supplying components and parts for rotten Apple until all lawsuits and trials are drop. Apple didn't lost any cents, Apple made $100 billions by used Samsung components and parts.

"Now Samsung must cut the life supports, stop supplying components and parts for rotten Apple until all lawsuits and trials are drop." I'm pretty sure that Samsung can't do that because they have made agreement and if Samsung will not comply agreement, Samsung will have to pay forfeit. "Apple didn't lost any cents, Apple made $100 billions by used Samsung components and parts." Agree.

the first part is very true. they are bound by contracts. Also they keep signing new ones.. TOGETHER. Second part is not true. Apple needs SAMSUNG much more than you think. They had the opportunity to get away from samsung and chose not to. No one else could supply them with what they needed when they needed it. You want to see an iphone with major supply issues? Let them switch from samsung. TMSC cant even handle its current S4 orders which are a FRACTION of the orders apple gets from Samsung for its A4/5/5x processors. Samsung would just sell the open inventory to other manufacturers. They've already increased factories and production to increase supply to ship. So far they've been running at max production and have only had enough to sell to ZTE. Which company WOULDNT want an Exynos processor? hmm?
