I am not surprised. Apple was bound to win. They seem reasonable in their arguments. I guess they know the basics well.

Hopefully, your reasoning improves by that time as well...

You're so right. Theft is so overrated and should be protected at all costs.

Here's an interesting thought: What if Apple moves to x86 in one of the future next iterations of the iPhone?

Well, the good thing is this is over and it's my impression that it was a fast process. Now let's see what people with samsung phones think and do. Will they opt for the iPhone instead? And from all this... what does the industry learn? To make a big effort to not copy the top player? Isn't this something that happens often in the industry? I mean... come on, a mobile phone is a mobile phone and there's not much form factor difference you can put in the design. Would there have been another reason behind which got these competitors in to the fight? And isn't it funny how they are competitors in one field and vendor and client in another? Qualcomm tried to do this some years ago and couldn't. Part of the argument was that Qualcomm was competing against his clients.

Now I'm pretty sure there will be no ipad mini having 7 inch screen. I can bet all my fortune for this.

apalling: apple deserves what it earns though its dedication to user experience, including cosmetic design. but it deserves no more. in particular, it does not deserve to stake out the whole universe of possible smartphone designs, excepting triangular and difficult-to-use ones. apple is an abusive monopolist of the worst order. I can only hope that IP reform will happen before samsung's appeals end.

Amazing how every court that apple tried this in around the world except the US was a loss for Apple. I guess this kind of result doesn't surprise me. Gotta support the home team. But clearly the jury weren't very intelligent if they found that the tab didn't infringe but then awarded damages against it. If I were Samsung I'd just skip the US market and focus on the rest of the world. Whats 350mil ppl comapred to what another 5.5 billion? Maybe that kind of tactic would get better results when the American consumer is outraged at having to buy a Samsung product on overseas holidays.

Samsung and apple has fought at many venues and the court decisions are aloso different in different times. This judgement is definitely a positive news for apple.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
