    More petty posturing and lawyers trying to justify their own salaries. Wish they'd all quit it.

    How convenient the court case is being held right in the same area as the Apple HQ.

    Sounds like US trade protectionalism in action.

    Re: News - Apple seeks $2bn from Samsung in new patent infringement battle

    Tech giant Apple has officially started yet another patent battle with smartphone market leader Samsung Electronics
    What ... the ... ! Idiotic bunch of stupid, , brain-dead, intellectually-challenged, , immoral, ing cretins
    Google is expected to be dragged into the crossfire this time around as Samsung claims that the software allegedly conceived by Apple in fact originated from Android OS. The list of asserted patents includes ones for hyperlinking, Siri's universal search abilities, background syncing of data, auto-complete and slide-to-unlock.
    Either I've got the strongest deja-vu or isn't this exactly the same crock of that Apple tried on with their last extortion attempt? And I'm very unimpressed that they've decided to go after Samsung specifically (presumably playing the "protecting US jobs" card - I agree with Cat) rather than Google. After all, if they managed to "get" Google then surely they'd be entitled to their blood money from all the Android manufacturers rather than just one?

    Not that I'm going to claim for one microsecond that Samsung haven't been guilty of "leveraging" some other peoples design features. But then again so have Apple in the past, so it's a bit bleedin' late for them suddenly to want to respect IP - or is it a case that their IP is the only one with value and merit?

    I used to respect Apple as a genuinely innovative leader in design, and a company I'd be happy to buy some pretty nifty products from. Now, on the other hand, they're just trolls living on past glories - barely different from those utter reprehensible "Intellectual Property" companies who produce nowt but lawsuits. How the once-mighty have fallen...

    Ah well, looks like I'll be buying a Cowon X5 after all, and putting my two iPod's (Video and Nano) in for gadget recycling.

    Re: News - Apple seeks $2bn from Samsung in new patent infringement battle

    Once again I'm feeling the urge to sue Apple for $2bn due to the emotional and mental distress inflicted on me by having to read about its latest baseless lawsuit.

    I hope that Apple fail with this lawsuit and that Google are able to nullify their patents.

    If America aren't careful the monetary incentive for selling products in their country could be less than the legal hassle of dealing with their ridiculous Patent Office and companies like Apple who use their unfounded patents destructively.

    Auto-complete as a patent.

    They will win though - the court is located a stones through from Apple HQ.

    The last time they had a case there,they were making economic arguments about jobs in Silicon Valley.

    Apple claims in documents submitted to the court that it "revolutionised the market in personal computing devices."
    I thought that was Microsoft that did that?
