    Apple Apology Posted In Samsung Vs Apple Case

    Apple made to post an apology on their website in Ariel no less than 14 point.

    Link: Apple - Samsung/Apple UK judgment

    ...The informed user's overall impression of each of the Samsung Galaxy Tablets is the following. From the front they belong to the family which includes the Apple design; but the Samsung products are very thin, almost insubstantial members of that family with unusual details on the back. They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool...
    Not much of an apology?

    Oh FFS Apple.

    It starts off OK, then turns into an advert.

    Then turns into "But our friend [US court system] said we were right. So, there! "

    Do you really think Samsung or HTC or Microsoft would be any different if positions were reversed? Or that this form of apology is another paving slab in a road that's been well trodden by both 'sides' in other industries before? They're all like primary school kids pulling hair in the playground.

    True.

    Someone should fine these companies every time they act like children.

    It's just their standard BS, they are now suing Samsung for unfair use of patents, ironic much. Someone does need to take their juice boxes away and give them all a time out but the biggest perpetrator is the government which allows their country to be run like a kindergarden in the first place. Someone also needs to add fair and just to the American dictionary as I think that they have lost all reference to their original meanings.

    In other news the Apple 'elastic' scrolling patent has been nullified by the patent office as when they 'actually checked it' - probably the first time they have done their due diligence ever, they found it to be invalid. This shuts down half of Apple's 'case' in the US but it is evident that the results are brought and paid for already so expect another fine for Samsung courtesy of the Star Skewed Bandanna wunderkind Apple.

    Oh for 20 billion dollars in bribes, I could effectively 'own' a country for at least a year, I'd have to outbid Apple though.

    Vote X-13 for President or the world.

    I'll fine them all 60% of their yearly profits [Net. I'm still taking ALL their taxes.]

    They'll think twice before doing it again.

    That is such a sullen, child-like apology, said with eyes downcast and bottom lip out as your mother stands there watching you with hands on hip. It even has the "I'm-right-I-got-the-last-word-so-NUH" ending.

    The Daily Mash are going to be stuffed here, how can you parody that? "Apple says sorry to Samsung for being so much cooler than them", except that's not really parody, it's just an accurate summation.

    In other news. Apple just invented time machine technology, just so they could serve Gene Roddenberry with C&D letters. Thus showing they tried to do it [somewhat] nicely and paving the way for a patent infringement lawsuit.

    Doesn't that usually end with a clip round the ear and the phrase "Now do it again, properly."

    That's not how Apple works:

    APPL: We invented the idea of time travel ages ago and we're only just back from the past using technology we have never implemented and never intend to. We are however suing everyone who has ever written about or discussed time travel for ten times their profit as we 'know' that we would have done it better. Even though we didn't 'exist' when we 'invented' it all by ourselves. We're Apple, trust us.

    Patent Office: So you invented it twenty years before you existed as a company and can't bring it to market in the next ten years... Sounds legit, here's your patent, happy suing and suppression of innovation.

    APPL: Profit!

    The apology is presented to you below in full; and it's anything but an apology.
    Therefore, they haven't apologised and they can be sued into oblivion for being [redacted].

    Depends if the judge accepts that drivel as being acceptable to fulfil his demands...
