    Apple just gave like 9 BILLION dollars in dividends not too long ago and they still have so much more in their cash funds. There's absolutely 0% chance this is about the money. It's about hurting Samsung and protecting their property.

    You are dreaming.

    I'm glad to see that justice has been served. It's interesting to see so many people still can't tell that Samsung blatantly copied apple. I'm glad the jury understands the law better than the average fanboy.

    I don't see why Apple "looks like a complete jerk." Firstly, it's a company, not a person. Secondly, suing another company for patent infringement is common around the world. And appropriate, especially if it's true. The jury came to a verdict very quickly in this case (the judge was quoted as saying she thought the case might be too complex for them), which leads me to believe that the case as presented was clear enough that it could be decided by laymen fairly easily. As to giving away the money, why? Apple is in business to make money. And, of course, the finding will be appealed through the courts for years, costing Apple more money to defend itself over and over. Oh, and if YOU had the ability to invent something, and patented it, and I was clever (venal) enough to copy it and sell it, my guess is YOU would sue ME and, if you won, YOU wouldn't give the money away.

    No offense, but this is quite an unintelligent thing to say. Sure, their phones are copy-cats, but that doesn't mean they are not nice. Sure I would rather have an HTC if I were to ever go to Android; but, they are still pretty decent. Not to mention their home appliances (i.e. refrigerators) are pretty nice as well.

    California favors Apple, look on the back of your iPhone to know why.
    Why do you think Apple wants to move all the lawsuits over to California?

    I am sure Samsung will appeal this case, hopefully they will take it all the way up to Supreme Court.
