If you're going to try and rip someone apart, then you may want to learn how to spell so that you don't look like a drunken fool.
As far as this article is concerned, there is very little doubt in my mind that this ruling will stand. Either way, it's going to be a long long time before Apple sees a dime (if at all).

This call by the jury was completely correct. And no way it'll get anywhere near Supreme court. It's cut & dried patent infringement which has well established precedent.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

2. What makes me think the poster doesn't appreciate the freedoms he/she has is the statement they made wishing to leave. Pleas get off your own high horse.

I'm not arguing the point about Xerox innovation. Still, there is a distinction here. Apple deployed technology it was approved to use. Microsoft, on the other hand, looked over Apple's shoulder and copied without permission. Gates has openly admitted as much. It's probably the most successful corporate espionage ever undertaken.
Good on Apple for not letting it happen again.

Apple needs to remember that the US requires competition, just ask Microsoft & "Ma Bell"...
That's one of the reasons Microsoft infused Apple with cash in the 90's that kept them afloat until the iPod revolution saved thier bacon.

And Apple versus MS is off topic anyway.
And Jobs innovated iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad - so lets never question his innovating chops. Apple 'invented' the very "idea" of a tablet. No Xerox in that equation.
Back to the topic: the thieves: Samsung! ;-)

What can I say... Maybe you never learned this principle: Innovation = idea and the abilty to bring it to completion and to be accepted by a market. Innovation isn't just a 'dream'. If it were - we could say daVinci 'innovated' all our modern technology. Nuff said.

It's the same with the iPhone, Windows Mobile Phones have been around since before 2003 and were already evolving towards onscreen keyboard, fewer hardware buttons and larger screen.
Nothing on Apple's tree has truly been new and original since Woz built the Apple 1...
I give Apple credit that they are very skilled when it comes to combining existing things Into something better and marketing the resulting product but thier success in on the backs of others.

Microsoft has 'innovated' in the same ways as Apple, by taking others' ideas and packaging them together.
