That Apple still has to go back to Samsung for so many parts of their phones, and Samsung will crank up the cost of those components to cover some of the loses here, Apple really must at one point have realised that this was a stupid way to try and get a discount.
I'm sure that's why Jobs started, but the moment the lawyers took over, it escalated into this mess we say, and though Samsung 'lost' the case, there was still plenty of evidence showing that Samsung threw designs at the wall and saw what stuck, they'd been making phones for a long time before Apple turned up asking for help/parts to make their phone, and Apple did exactly the same things they accused Samsung of, ie, looking at other products and copying/refining them, but then going the extra mile to patent it.
The moment in the case it was shown Apple had photoshopped a Samsung device to make it look more like iOS was the moment the case should have been thrown out. Then that initial settlement being found against devices the case said didn't infringe?
Samsung were screwed from the start. I'm still not understanding how the Judge was allowed to run this case after having worked on Patents/IP issues for Apple before in the past. That there was a risk she herself could be called as a witness at some point was just crazy and should never been allowed to happen.
