    Apple Wins Lawsuit over Samsung

    So....Apple wins in its lawsuit with Samsung (related to google and Android). $1 billion verdict.

    What will this mean for those who have and want to buy a Samsung Galaxy or other Android products?

    Discuss.

    Apple awarded $1 billion in patent case vs. Samsung - Bottom Line
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    I had one of the first Smartphones by Qualcomm/Kyocera in 2001. They all copied that.

    Yea but just wait and see how much of an "improvement" Apple has made to their new iPhone 5. As much as I like the iPhone, the form factor is getting a little stale. If designs and leaks hold any merit, all they did was make the new one a little thinner, taller and included a metal/aluminum/NON-glass portion to the back, making the phone around 4 inches.

    The first generation design was great. They shouldn't have changed it into a damn glass sandwich bordered with metal/aluminum/whatever the fuck it is. I believe this phone was the last to have Steve's input. Next year's phone will be based off of the new head honchos over at Cupertinoville

    That will be ONE BIIIIILLLLLION DOLLARS, please.



    After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a jury decided Friday that Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad. (Aug. 24)

    iPhones are bad ass....when compared to Blackberrys.

    They are small, slow, heavy, have a non-user serviceable battery and use a shitty glass screen so by the time you put a protector on the stupid thing its a 1/2" thick. Oh yeah, they are over-priced too.

    Samsung is appealing, obviously.

    And I presume this has as much to do with google and android as samsung.

    I own an Iphone and LOVE it only because the stuff I use it for at work is a bit more smoother then my old android. But when it comes down to apps and function the andriod owns with the opensource market. I can see the reason for the lawsuit, but seriously Apple your a multibillion $ company are you that scared of Android?

    Apple Inc. has submitted a list of eight Samsung Electronics Co. products it wants pulled from shelves and banned from the U.S. market. It comes after a jury found Samsung copied the iPhone and iPad in creating and marketing the products. (Aug. 27)

    ^^^ they have every thing you buy now says apple compliant... Even the gym equipment has apple chargers built into the cardio machines. Other then work this is one of the reasons I made the swap. I like the versatility of the android so much more, but I personally get more out of my iphone. Only good thing for me about the droid was it was easier to hide test msg, pictures and porn.

    I'm a neo-phyte on tech stuff, but Apple and Microsoft are not open source correct?

    And Android (as you state) is open source.

    Can somebody throw me a quick definition of 'open source?'


    (Pardon my ignorance.)

    Open Source means like to pick at scabs... But seriously it's for tech minded individuals who don't mind spending a day fixing a phone they just screwed up by trying too many tweaks. I would have enjoyed an open source phone when I was in my 20's but these days I don't have time to goof around just to get my phone ultra techie personalized.
