It's tempting to boycott Apple entirely for shit like this, but the whole reason this frustrates me is that they're limiting the opportunity for the consumer to purchase superior products. If Apple releases the superior product, I will purchase it. If not, I won't. The fact that they're wiping away the competition over a similar surface design is pretty cowardly IMO. Or you could call it smart business, whatever. No reason they should have a monopoly on rectangles.

It's disappointing to see them get a win here.

So do any of you GalNex owners have Jelly Bean yet? I'm still (not-so) patiently awaiting ICS. C'mon, at&t and/or Samsung...

As a publicly-traded company, Apple has to protect its intellectual property as much as possible because it is responsible to its shareholders.

As a consumer, I really want the opposite. More, better competition = we all win.

My issue with that is they obviously copied off the dev community and from Google and MS and then try to sue people for stuff they didn't create.

Just ordered a Nexus 7 from Google Play. I'm super excited to get it. I was surprised they had it in stock online. I've had shitty lags on Android tablets in the past, but seeing project butter sealed the deal for me.

So Apple is asking for 2.5 Billion in Damages from Samsung for Infringment and go after companies for infringing on their designes and products, yet when they do the same and infringe on Samsungs 3G patent they only want to pay half a cent for each Samsung patent they infringed on?

Apple Wants $2.5 Billion From Samsung For Infringed Patents, Offers Half A Cent For Each Samsung Patent

How is Jelly Bean? Is it as "buttery smooth" as it's supposed to be? UPS guarantees that it'll be at my house by the end of the day tomorrow, so I'm pretty excited.
