So it looks like Samsung will be using US origin employees to defend itself against Apple - just to neutralize their accent / culture / showmanship advantages. But the judge seems to be an Asian - American.

What is the problem of Asian American judge? Does it mean if it is a German company, European American cannot be the judge? Don't forget President Eisenhower is German American

I sat in the courtroom for three days and so far haven't seen ethnicity or nationalism being a factor in the case. I hope that remains the situation.

I believe the ethnicity of the judge is irrelevant. But on another matter: here is another piece of Apple's case that I find neither surprising nor egregious. So an executive at Samsung gave a very frank assessment of how its handsets didn't measure up to the iPhone? I would assume similar emails are sent at every company trying to keep pace with the iPhone. For that matter, I would expect that similar emails are sent in any company that is chasing another one and clearly getting it's tail whipped. Is analyzing a market leading product and trying to top it the same as copying?

Today's announcement by Apple that it will no longer support "YouTube app" is a case in point. If Apple is resting on its laurels (unlike Samsung) it will soon feel the heat from users. They should look at what happened to Blackberry. While comparison between Samsung and Apple seems fair, let us not forget that Apple only serves a niche market while Samsung recently replaced Nokia as World No.1. Apple cannot dream about such status in the near future. As of 2011 Samsung sold 329 million units compared with 93.2 million of Apple. Also Samsung revenue for 2011 was about double that of Apple. The per unit income for Apple is high, but it serves just a small group of users.

I have lost all respect for Apple. I guess in today's world, if you can't beat 'em, sue 'em.

Samsung gained market share at Apple's expense, but another article on eetimes.com says that Apple earned 71% of all handset profits last year, compared to only 37% of all handset profits for Samsung. Who is beating whom?
