back to article Apple stops caring about Samsung kit everyone else stopped caring about years ago

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 …

Lame...

Apple: "WAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"

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!!!"

Samsung: "Whatever...."

That's what I get from all of this.

Re: Lame...

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.

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.

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?
