Does anyone want to make wagers on the outcome of this case? I bet Apple wins. Why... because there are more "jewish experts" testifying for Apple. Samsung's Dutch attorney is sharp, but he will be eventually pummelled to death. To wager, we'd have to define what a "win" is.

Samsung really copies a lot from Apple. It gonna be a big surprise if Samsung was decided to be the winner this case.

It's not about real competition between technologies. It is just a battle between lawyers involving a lot of money and not too many ideas: who has better (paid) lawyers will win in the end. A good lawyer can prove that any product infringed somehow the IP of another company. I think the current IP laws are not doing any good for the advance of science and technologies. We need a significant reform. While granting developers temporary monopolies over their works, the copyright laws (as they are today) are abused by corporations who engage in expensive legal battles subsequently reducing the development and creativity efforts - the primary goal of such laws when they were first created (i.e. to give the developer a source of income and reinvestment in further activity). The IP laws are now outdated, especially in the high tech sector and they need to adapt to the modern information technology. For whatever it takes, Apple looks like the bully here - I'm sure they were good innovators but I bet they also used (intelligently) other people ideas. A good lawyer can demonstrate this given enough resources and access to relevant documents. And a number of other companies used ideas borrowed from Apple in the past but they were not sued at that time because Apple wasn't big enough. Eventually, if not Samsung, other companies will be doing (and are doing) the same - use whatever they can from Apple (or Palm or HP or...) and (hopefully) continue to develop things for their own good and ours. Too bad for the time and money spent in these fights...

"Winer said Apple is paying him $625/hour or about $50,000 to date for his testimony" He is getting paid from Apple!! that's all matters. You get nothing but mudslinging.

But the look of Palm had expired and it was not patented! Unfortunately, Apple copied it and the prior art will not apply. Samsung copied and now lawyers are deciding competitions.

This trial is no more than a muppet show. I cannot believe a second that intellignet people use so silly arguments to justify one thing or another. On top of this they have a tendancy to take their cutometrs for ignorant or silly people, please a bit more of respect for the ones who generate your revenus. It is just ridiculous and whatever the resoulution at the end. boith company will have for loose in credibility.

I know I'm echoing what others have said in the forum about Apple-Samsung trial stories in the past few days, but it's pretty difficult to believe that intelligent people literally can't distinguish between the products made by Samsung and those made by Apple.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
