Judge: Apple showed a 'lack of integrity"
posted by Alan F. / Nov 09, 2012, 4:32 PM
Instead of following the court ruling as to the content of the post, Apple put up parts of the judge's ruling that said the iPad "was striking," with a "cool design." Apple also noted that the judge said that Samsung GALAXY Tablets "...do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool."
Judge Robin Jacob was livid when he saw what Apple had done and demanded a change in the wording of the 'apology'. After being given a 24 hour deadline, Apple finally did post a 'boilerplate' apology that was more in line with the judge's request.
Judge Jacob is still angry and on Friday, he said that Apple showed a "lack of integrity" when the company told the judge that it would take two weeks to change the original statement on its website. The judge added that Apple published "false and misleading" statements. During a November 1st hearing, Lord Justice Longmore told Apple, "We are just amazed that you cannot put the right notice up at the same time as you take the other one down." Jacob added: "I don't believe the instructions you have been given. This is that Apple cannot put something on their own website?"

Yes, how dare that man iMply that Apple was iNcontempt? Apple is a law-abiding and fair company; people shouldn't believe the histrionic banter of some judge (unless it's judge lucy Ho) or the utterances of the thousands of workers at some Chinese factory.

if Apple had integrity: - they would not file for stupid patents of rectangle with rounded corners - they would not take their competitors to courts with such petty patents - they would use standard connectors for their gadgets - they would not sell a piece of wire for $30 - they would not use "reality distortion field" to mislead customers - they would apologize when they are wrong and not point their fingers to their victims .... Only if Apple had integrity!

Burn they will for sure!! "...it would take two weeks to change the original statement on its website." How the hell would changing the statement take two weeks?? When all it took was a few days to post it after the Judge ruled against Apple?? Seems like Apple is still not the leader in tech world as people claim them to be.

Typical. The only company in the world that thinks they're above the law. I hope for the worst for them in the near future.

Apple to Judge --- What's integrity? It's one of the things that starts with "i" and we don't own it yet :D

Y'all put way to much effort into hating Apple, it's really not that serious. Then again, maybe it is that serious in y'all opinions.

You put too much effort into turning a blind eye. It really is that serious. Then again, maybe it isn't that serious in your opinion. When a company thinks it's above the law, that's when something has to be done to put it in line. apple is under the impression that deep pockets allow it to do whatever it wants in any country, if that isn't bad enough for you then I don't know what to tell you.

Apple needed the time to figure out how to hide the apology from people which they eventually did.

Upon each day that passes, I become more and more ashamed and embarassed I ever loved Apple. Completely unprofessional and childish and at least Samsung's commericals are funny and clever.

Upon each day that passes, I become mroe and mroe ashamed and embarassed that I love android and have an android phone. The way fandroids act and how they think they're superior to iOS users is just too much.
