I was always curious how in the world laywers come up with these figures. It's a fascinating back and forth in the courtroom drama!

It's mostly BS.  Very highly-paid BS because it is precise to 4 decimal places.  Engineers design, liars lawyers get rich off their efforts.

@zeeglen, can't argue with that. But egnineers also benefit from lawyers' work -- if they argue successfully in court to value engineers' work.

Certainly a lot of calculation. Again these numbers are provided by Apple and vellturo had to build right reasoning.

Looking at this squabble between Apple and Samsung - I start liking Chinese copycats. We should do case study for this.

Looks like Apple and SAmsung patent fight is never ending one. Guess its more like a business for everyone. For some to keep themselves busy and for others to make money.

Slide to Unlock Patent - Huh?

They seem to place a lot of weight on the Slide-To-Unlock feature which appears to be patented.  Exactly what is the benefit of this?  Does anyone know.

To me it's a nothing but a nuisence.  I wish I could turn it off.

If you have one lawyer in a small town, he will starve.  If you add a second lawyer they will both get rich.  Further, a lawyer I worked with years (decades) ago told of a picture in the library where he went to law school.  Entitled the "Lawsuit" it was a picture of a cow.  One litigant was pulling on the horns, the other on the tail.  While went on the lawyer was milking the cow.  Anybody see a similarity here?
