    They only hurt the consumers in the end.

    Don't forget that it is highly likely Apple will be (or already have) looking for other companies to supply parts for their devices. Those are huge contracts. Samsung made more money selling parts to Apple then them selling their own phones. Even if Samsung wins, they still lose.

    He's probably paid by Samsung to spam this thread with useless comments.

    On a side note, this is like pocket change for the two companies.

    Seems like we have lots of trolls in the news threads nowadays...

    Sorry to disappoint you once again, but Samsung is paying $22,000 and Apple is paying $17,650 (read the source article). According to your logic, Samsung loses. In my mind, everyone loses.

    In all seriousness, being that this is Samsung's home turf, this has got to be a major blow to them. Samsung must have really screwed up to get banned in their own country. The good news is that they can still sell washing machines.

    Actually, I can't read. Apple is paying that amount for each infraction. My bad!

    Sorry Samsung, US courts weren't nearly as nice to you. Big win for Apple.

    Yeah, I like this simple outcome.

    Now with this and the end of the "big one" here in the US, hopefully Apple and Samsung can get back to what they do best: making cool stuff.

    the apple vs samsung issue is becoming a Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson break up - Sensational! lol

    I am curious about whether part of the reason there is more traction in the US is because there is a larger gap in technology adoption amongst those over 40-50, and if due to this the claims that it would be easy to confuse the devices seem more substantive? I am not sure how anyone under these ages could look at one of these products, and not have their first thought be, oh what product is this, let me look for tell tale signs to differentiate it. Apple logo, oh, iPad. And that is if we assume they don't know them by sight. It does seem like something someone my mother's age might be confused by though. They are both rectangles that show you photos and email. Well how am I supposed to know which is which, they are both rectangles. Does anyone know if there were similar lawsuits when cars came out? They both have four wheels etc, how can you tell the difference?
