This is not a shitty article, cant say the same about the way verdict was reached, manipulated from personal prejudice seems more like it.... Rick, once again, thanks for your great coverage. Hope you will continue through the appeals process.

Do you think that the light switch wasn't patented?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_switch#cite_note-googlepatents-1 Now the patent has expired and other manufacturers can use the patent in their own designs ....... just as the patent system was meant to be used.

What a shitty article, only bunch of thoughts with no explanation. Who cares what was the background of this "light bulb moment", everyone wants to know how this judge will defend this patent. I am waiting for second round of this fight.

On the specific point about 'bounce back' at the end of a menu tree - My Logitech (nee. Slim Devices) Squeezebox had this over five years ago. I don't know when the patent was granted, but either it's not valid, or Logitech need to panic...

There's actually a post with all the six patents that Samsung infringed. One of them was that icon design of Apple's: http://www.esphoneblog.com/2012/08/28/these-are-the-six-apple-patents-that-samsung-infringed-on/

As I have commented above, touchscreen have been around in popular use in electronic Kiosks and ATMs for over 25 years now. There was a design competition in early 2000's for the most user friendly PC among some of the top engineering schools. I remember that the prize winning entry had every UI element of IPad, including a stylus for the touchscreen. So much for 'lacking prior art' in awarding these patents to Apple.

Many times I read an article and have fun from reading the comments. This time I couldn't read all! This Apple-Samsung verdict is more than I thought. It seems most of the people think all this is wrong. Patents that shouldn't be granted in the first place? It seems that any little idea is patentable in the US.

I agree. This "testimony" by teh foremore WILL blow the case wide open. Did these deliberations contravene teh judge's direction or did teh judge fail to direct the jury on this matter (which would be a perfect storm for an appeal.)

Essentially, the foreman may have provided his own "expert testimony" in the jury room. If the appellate court agrees, this may need to be retried. It is definitely not over.
