WOW! What a credible witness. Former Apple employee and (dare I say it) she's a blonde!

I'm confused. If I pay enough money for an expert to testify that my poop looks and smells like delicious chocolate, can I sue Hearshys inc.? Just the other day, my dog mistook my poop (we were camping out) for chocolate, and gobbled it all down. Simple, these over reaching “obvious” patents should never have been granted. The patent that was used on BlackBerry was good example of these obvious patents. Even in 1990, it was obvious that a handheld device, like Kirk and Spock used on star trek (1966) could do all these things, like call people and send written data.

I'm confused, I thought stores kept these products in a storage area until a consumer requests one for purchase. So, is Apple saying their consumers aren't specifying that they want an Apple product, or are sales people not describing the product they are selling properly. How many people just walking into a store, and point at a product, saying "I want that!" Okay, I can believe a few people might do that, but not enough people to warrant $2.5 billion worth, especially if you consider that usually those people tend to do a lot of research before hand to know exactly what they want. Don't even get me started on online transactions for these products.

Car manufacturers are only really assemblers. They do exterior and interior design. The components they use are like the components inside the iPhone / Samsung. ie Not designed by Mercedes or Honda but by Continental or Delphi. If Apple tried to sue on the basis that a DC/DC converter was the same they would lose. If a car manufacturer blantantly copied a Ferrari they would be sued. And rightly (unless the manufacturer was in China) they would win their case. So what's the difference here? Samsung copied Apple. Apple may have copied someone else but that's another case.

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.

uh, I think apple deserve some credit anyway. It's not sueing MS Win7/8 this round since Win7/8 is much more different than OS. android camp did play lazy and cheap by imitating apple. apple this poor man need some compensation.

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?

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!!
