[Engadget]Apple sues Samsung for 'copying' the iPhone and iPad - Page 5

I'd be pissed off if I was Apple and I don't blame them for bringing a suit, although I'm sure nothing will come of it.
*cough* BS *cough*

If this were true, most phone manufacturers would be copying Apple and making their devices completely glass. They don't, obviously, because they're smart enough to see the fact that glass is very scratch-resistant but very brittle.

If the design dimensions are different by even a mm in any dimension, and not *exactly* the same aspect ratios for the various measurements, I'd say it's pretty frivolous to sue--even with the similarities they're not nearly the same.

I especially love how one of Apple's complaints is similarity of the user interface to the apple iOS user interface--when it's not even Samsung that makes their OS. Guess Apple doesn't want to take on Google directly, as the article mentions.

Basically, the Lawyers convince them that it is less expensive to sue everything that moves than have their IP become common usage and lose their market share. These lawyers bill by the hour, so you can put 2 and 2 together...

Blaming Steve Jobs/Apple is kinda not really getting at the subject. Apple is a public company with shareholders to answer to. It's the same reason every other public corporation does shady things. The people running the institution aren't inherently evil (usually). They are just trying to keep their job.

I loled @ your memory in your sig rig. Memtest errors eh
