Apple has ended its attempt to ban nearly two dozen old Samsung mobile models from import into the US. The iPhone maker on Monday filed a motion for dismissal of its appeal against the 2012 decision by Judge Lucy Koh, which awarded Apple a $1bn damages payout for patent infringement but blocked an injunction against Samsung …
Samsung: "Those devices are not even being sold anymore anyway. We made our billions....stop your whining!!!"
Apple: "WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!....wait....what?? Oh...uhhhh...well alright then! Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!!!"
That's what I get from all of this.
It's like groklaw never went away!
Seems like samsungs lawyers had it right then, just drag out each court case until the devices have been replaced. Wait for the new court case, then rinse and repeat. So long as samsung make more money from selling devices than the lawyers cost, it's just a cost of business. Hopefully Apple will get bored of paying their lawyers sometime soon.
I gave up caring about them years ago, along with MS, Yahoo, Amazon, Paypal, Google, HP, Logitech, Samsung, HTC and the list goes on........
On the upside, I still read El Reg
"Google, HP, Logitech, Samsung, HTC and the list goes on........"
I should have gone to SpecSavers. I read that as "Google, HP Lovecraft, Samsung, HTC and the list goes on........
I tried going to specsavers but couldn't read the signs so went home instead
Paypal is not your pal
iPhones are boring
About 2 years ago I walked into my local Tesco store and to my surprise saw a large display of old black small Samsung phones. I then looked more closely and realized that these phones were new iPhone 5s. IPhone 5s look really dated.
and in 2 years time...
you will find the iPhone 8 looking like a 2011 Galaxy Note.
Big phone patent
So how come Samsung never got a 'Big Phone' patent in the US?
Being as innovative as round corners or finger swiping how dare Apple attempt to copy?
Could it be that the USPTO only likes home grown bullshitting?
from Apple. At last?
Suing people can rebound against the Plaintiffs.
"Seconds out.....Round 3"
And the winner is:.......... the lawyers!! (again)
