I thought trolls liked eating crow?!? Should the worlds largest patent troll be happy about a plate full of crow?

Oh how I love the irony of these events. Apple, who has built their empire on stealing other businesses tech, is on a tirade against companies who do the same. Shameful.

Strangely, the usually snarky Engelsstaub comment is somehow missing from this thread.

Here I am!

(I didn't have anything to say because of how gravely effected I've been by this news and now I've retreated into hiding.)

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts <3

my neighbor's half-sister makes $70 hourly on the internet. She has been laid off for five months but last month her paycheck was $17706 just working on the internet for a few hours. Here's the site to read more NuttyRich.c0m

He used to work for apple but he died last year. I'm sure he is turning in his grave so fast that it is about to start burning.

Granted this is a great victory for Samsung in the UK, it won't last for long. Apple is going to be suing every single smartphone developer soon over their newly approved patent (mark my words). If you haven't heard about it yet, Apple won approval to patent a vanishing vertical scroll bar for portable electronic devices. More info can be found here -- http://tinyurl.com/bv2aqju

Apple needed a reason to sue every single smart phone make!?! Apple would sue them regardless, even if they didn't own a single patent for anything. That's just the kind of company they are, and have always been.

Where are all the apple defenders now!?

you are 1,000% correct about apple going to sue everyone even more now due to this insane patent. they know that they can't become a monopoly with their current products and tactics. they will rely on the judge's/government's ban on all other company products to become the monopoly they have always wanted to be. by doing it this way, it will not hurt their image, and they will only be following said government's orders

As much as I like Apple products, I do hope that this pushes them to stop these lawsuits. I don't think it's helped them, although they've won injunctions here and now. Overall, it's not helping their image and the only ones benefiting here are the lawyers.

Apple and Samsung and the rest of the smartphone industry should focus on innovating and making great products for all the consumers out there. All of these patent lawsuits should stop.

I'm looking at all the companies!

As I understand it, crow tates very much like chicken.

You were asking for it Apple...

Simple, this should be Apple's ad;

"A Judge determined that Samsung’s tablets were unlikely to be confused with the iPad because they are “not as cool."

The judge actually did Apple a small favor here.

That just might be what they do. I was also wondering why Apple finally bought the apple.co.uk domain. They'll probably just have this statement for their UK customers.

Sweet justice! How many different ways can someone make a square device and not copy another square device.

Hey, you are using the same font as I did in a previous comment I, I'll see you in court Sr.

Now if only the US was as smart as UK

I could be wrong, but I don't think it has to do with them being smarter than US judges, just less corrupt. Maybe extremely ignorant, but definitely not stupid. You don't become a higher ranking judge by being an idiot.

in many state you do not have to even have a lawyer to be a judge.. or a degree in law.
