Jury Says Samsung Ripped Off Apple’s iPhone Technology

By: Saturday August 25, 2012 4:00 pm

Apple spanked Samsung so hard their whole family could feel it on Friday when a 9 member jury found that Samsung had violated numerous Apple patents that pertain to both the iPhone and iPad.

The jury deliberated for only 23 hours, and indication that they found Apple’s chronological, side-by-side presentation of Apple and Samsung product development extremely convincing.

The decision is being hailed as a “blow to consumers,” but if you look at Apple’s April 15, 2011 complaint (PDF), you’ll see what the jury saw.

Yet Another Media Robber Baron Not Getting It

By: Sunday March 28, 2010 5:00 pm

There’s a tendency among iPod or iPhone users to scoff at the notion that a news app might actually be worth paying money for. No reason to spend a few bucks on a subscription each month when you can easily go online on your phone and find the news that way. On the other side of the spectrum are people like Rupert Murdoch who think news can still be bought and sold like before the internet. Murdoch will charge for web access to the Times of London and $17.99 a month for a subscription to the iPad edition of The Wall Street Journal.

I think both these arguments are partially wrong.
