Most know that doing business with Samsung puts their IP at risk. Apple was not thinking clearly when choosing a partner.

Maybe there is a bigger story that we might call the 2nd Apple Effect. I'll condense and paraphrase the 1st Apple Effect as, "It's about computing, not computers". When Apple launched their iPhone many years ago, pundits colectively said, "Ho hum, who needs another phone maker". The "blocks of technology" were mature; touch screens, MEMS accelerometers, etc. Yet the clever, but simple design, grabbed the consumer market and turned it upside down. Apple did it with rather old technology, but with extraordinary design innovation. The 2nd Apple Effect? A litter of copycats, big and small, who have mostly forsaken creativity. But innovation is not dead, it's on hold, and that's a sad thing. So who is responsible for attenuated creativity and true innovation? And don't blame Apple.

Who was that quoted Picos' saying, "Good Artists copy, Great Artists Steal." And we (Apple) have never been ashamed of our stealing other people's ideas" It was Steve Jobs himself. What a hypocrite! I hope that famous video of Jobs saying that comes up in the trial.

I totally agree & have thought the same thing for quite some time. I hope the DOJ opens antitrust investigation against Apple.

Apple better hope they lose. If they win, I can see many countries just waiting to hit them with charges of creating a monopoly. It happened to IBM and Microsoft and Apple is finally big enough to draw attention. Plus having all of their devices built in China is sure to be an issue. They should have curbed their greed!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
