I usually buy Rockport loafers, you know, those ox blood colored shoes that are sometimes called "penny loafers." I have to admit, I do get them confused with Florsheim, Hannover, or other brands. Oh my. What is one to do.

I use a Samsung phone and it's easy to tell the difference between it and an iPhone. The Samsung is all black on the sides, while the iPhone has an aluminum side. Black and aluminum look very different. Does Susan Kare also get confused on which car she is driving? My Acura RL is a copy of the higher-priced Mercedes sedan, but we don't see these two auto makers in court about the shape of their cars. Our patent system is broken when a rectangle shape phone with rounded corners can be patented.

The "expert witnesses" for Apple are being paid by Apple, thus they will say whatever Apple tells them to say. Integrity can be bought. I have to believe that Steve Jobs would never have allowed this farce of a lawsuit.

I believe that Steve Jobs would have allowed for and pushed for this lawsuit if he believed that it could make Apple some money on the IP that they've beens spending money on. BTW, making a statement that she accidently picked up a Samsung phone suggests that she doesn't have much substance. I think my "relatively" non-technical wife would be able to tell the difference. She's an "expert?"

So let me get this straight. Apple hires an expert to testify that iPhone and Samsung phones are similar. So what is she supposed to say? "Apple is paying me $400 per hour and I think Samsung's phones are different than Apple's"??? Also this woman has been working for Apple. If she ever wanting to work again with them, would she testify against them?? Come on people!!

I agree, but I'm not so sure that Jobs wouldn't have approved it. It would be part of his 'thermonuclear' assault on Android. Just out of interest - when does a person ever have to choose a handset from a conference table packed with handsets? This does have to be a joke, right?

In the automotive industry it's very easy to confuse one car with another as the manufacturers follow each other no more than a year apart. In fact when you sit in any current car, you'll notice that most everything even the switches for the power seats look and feel identical whether the car is from the U.S. Europe or Asia. This is the year of the mass introduction of direct injection and small turbo chargers on vehicle's premium engines. Can you name a manufacturer that doesn't have one? The same goes for the fashion industry. Most everyone looks the same. How are cellphones any different? They're mainly a fashion statement.
