Interesting. So Apple copied the clickwheel from Samsung?

Wait, what? If it is previously done outside the US it is not considered prior art?

Read it again. They're talking about using a clickwheel with numbers around the periphery as a replacement for the standard cell phone numeric keypad. Apparently Samsung had done that (news to me) and Steve thought they screwed up by not having the numbers 3, 6 and 9 match their positions on a clock.

Samsung claiming to patent a wheel and a clock? Sorry I don't get their point.

Great reading. Shows what everyone knew all along: both companies benchmark and evaluate other products and ask themselves what they can do to incorporate and build on the features and capabilities they find. I am no lawyer or judge, but I would argue that the Jobs email is the most damming of all.

Would love to be a juror on this one. I know I'm not seeing the whole picture just from these selected emails in this article, but what I see so far is not convincing of either side's case. Also, the timeline is unclear from the dates of these emails. Who allegedly copied who, and when?

The emails are interesting but not core to the case, IMHO. They establish industry practice is to examine in great detail competing products. The emails do not speak directly to whether Samsung copied Apple's patented technologies.

Interesting reading. This reminds us to write less emails at work :)

This will the most ridiculous lawsuit of the century, if it wouldn't be happening. Apple's great competitive position is only due to good design and good marketing. The technology itself comes from others (e.g. Samsung in Korea). Even the assembly is done in China. Get real!
