    @dsmx

    Agreed. The bloke comes across as pretty self-important imo.

    The whole thing smells of "Americans siding with big popular American corporation just because they're big, popular and American" to me.

    The damages alone are fucking ridiculous.

    I much prefer the Korean verdict, where the judge was so pissed off at both of their antics she punished both sides to teach them a lesson.

    Beating apple at their own game with their own game deserves a prize.

    Meet the Goophone i5. It's a phone knocked up by a Chinese company based on the leaked Apple iPhone 5 pictures. They've actually patented it and threaten to sue apple if they release a similar device! :D The balls on these guys!

    That will be pretty fucking funny if that ends up in court.

    I can see this happening from now on with every apple product seeing as everything they make is manufactured in China.

    They've basically created the nastiest, most underhanded rod ever devised for their own back and long may the suffer for it.
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 16:11:18
    They created the patent system? Fucking hell DB.

    They patented the one thing no one should have been able to patent - basic design features.

    :D That's fake mate, I think someone calculated they would need 4000 lorries if they ever did that, and even then there aren't that many 5 cent coins in the USA. Also, Samsung plan to appeal the decision.

    Not sure how "Legal Tender" works in the US, but in the UK (from what I can understand based on the legal advice of Wikipedia QC) they could claim that Samsung hadn't paid at all as there's only so many 5p pieces that you can use to pay off an obligation before it ceases to be "legal tender".

    Does the US have a similar thingy?

    A billion 5c would be worth more than a billion in scrap metal, or something stupid like that.
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 17:00:19
    It costs 11c to make a 5c coin according to the gods of Wikipedia.

    I agree, 110%. It just shows how desperate they are to cockblock their rivals when they start getting so pedantic that they squabble over things like rounded corners, icons on a screen and the fucking bounce back "feature".

    I thought the exact makeup of coinage was a state secret?

    Aren't they copper inside? I'm sure I've got a couple from trips there that are worn through to a copper core.
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 17:19:40
    I think it's the manufacturing process that's the secret part. They are 75% copper.

    Speaking of evil Apple, I can't believe their customer service has actually gotten better. You don't even phone them anymore, just put your number in and they phone you straight away, no annoying automated messages. They also just replaced my 5 year old charger for free with next day delivery. :)

    They might be evil but fuck me they do good customer service. EVIL
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 17:44:56
    Apple is evil? good know, thanks for the warning.

    Their customer service had better shine your shoes after dispensing support given you have to pay for it.

    So the best they could come up with was another row for app icons, a slightly bigger screen that is still smaller than its rivals, 4G which most people won't have for several years, and another proprietary connector.

    Wow.

    You're speaking as if those are not amazing new features that everyone must immediately upgrade to.
