“I went to pick up the iPhone to make a point and I was holding a Samsung phone,” This strikes me as being very similar to the late-night infomercials where they try to sell you a useless egg cracker by making cracking an egg look impossible to do without losing half the egg on the floor and your face.

Trouble would be keeping a straight face when she describes her total confusion....

This trial is intriguing and insightful, and now with testmonies like this it now has even the element of comedy, I want to be on that jury panel ;-)

The continued addition of features is probably impossible to keep up, but the "copying" of older versions seems inevitable.

I try to stay neutral on this topic, and I admit to be a Apple fanboy, but this "expert" is less of an expert than my 2 year old son.. Maybe he can do the next iphone design ;-)

If Samsung is allowed to copy most aspects of Apple, many Chinese vendors will follow them and make Apple look like product. This must be prevented.

It turns out, Lancia was the first to inroduce the V-6 in production cars, in 1950 (not the '60s as I said before). BUT the V-6 engine had already been built way before that, just never applied to production cars. The point being, every automaker soon copied Lancia. Because the V-6 is very efficent in space utilization. This is very analogous to Apple and Samsung. The other thing is, Samsung should come back and say look at our screen. It's 16:9 wide screen. Apple's is not. How can anyone not see the difference? In point of fact, the iPhone5 is coming out with a 16:9 screen, so I think Samsung should sue Apple. The Apple iPhone and iPad screens have always been hopelessly squarish looking, compared with what the world of digital TV has been providing.

Well, I don't have data on the V6, but Lancia patented their V8 engine in 1915: http://www.sportscars.tv/Newfiles/histlancia.html Most car companies have large patent portfolios. Most things are obvious after the fact. It is when you realize that no one was doing it before the invention despite the advantages that you realize that things are not always as obvious as they appear.

this law suit seems preventive measure for apple, so that people keep thinking that apple is innovative even they put such product on market.

@Bert: Apple got these documents through the legal discovery process whereby both sides are allowed to seek internal emails and documents for the other to support their case. Stay tuned to see more of these goodies. They are a rare and legal peek in to the workings of giants like Apple and Samsung.
