    Yeah, I guessed that much. I just wan't sure if there was some other Cartman that I didn't know about.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    The original statement is quoted here:

    Rubbish Apology

    No sour grapes here though, no siree! Also I'm posting from a mobile so if that link is broken, could someone fix it please? Cheers :)

    I did think the original notice was a bit cheeky, buried as it was inside a press release.

    They should just post a picture of a Galaxy Tab with "This is definitely not an iPad and according to UK law hasn't copied it. The judge in the case said it's just not as cool"

    Best part is their argument that it would take 14 days to update their homepage.

    Brilliant.

    Apple are being very stupid there, because Samsung could use Apple's quoting of the Judge's word as evidence in other cases that Apple recognise that the relevant products are different.

    Apple seems to be emphasising how distinctly better/cooler their products are compared to Samsung, yet in other courts they're claming they're exactly the same..

    Edited by jellyhead at 17:21:24 02-11-2012 Yay, video preview! It's amazing what you find when you remember to look at the options in the display settings for the forum. *sigh*

    I think they've just lost a case in Mexico against iFone having a similar name despite it existing 4 years previous to any iPhone. As a result, iFone are now suing them back for 40% of all iPhone sales so far. And they have apparently lost the right to use the term iPhone just before releasing number 5 there which must hurt a bit.

    I have a laptop from 2001 about 10 feet away from me that looks exactly the same (some Dell magnesium cased thing)... what's so funny about it?

    A silver laptop with black buttons is a silver laptop with black buttons.

    Sure Samsung could square the edges of the keys off or offset the scroll pad to one side but who gives a fuck?

    So I don't know if anyone has noticed, but Apple put the notification up on their home page today and they've re-engineered the page so that by default you can't see it. There's javascript in that page which resizes the content so as to ensure the only way you can see the notification is to scroll down, even if you're running a crazy high resolution.

    I just tried it in chrome, IE and Opera and none them show the notice. Only Firefox does for me, and that's because noscript is on.

    Compare it to the US site where you can see the footer when you load the page.

    Surely at some point all these shenanigans become contempt of court?
  • Deleted user 3 November 2012 21:27:46
    The judgement didn't say it has to be there without having to scroll the page did it?

    I don't know why they don't put up a MASSIVE notice that says "We acknowledge Samsung's product isn't similar as a judge officially deemed it less cool. Stick with the coolest product", or something like that. Turn it into a positive.

    Sure, maybe not massive, but they could certainy keep it positive if they wanted.

    Doesn't matter, in the UK the judge presiding over the case judges if the response from apple is within the spirit of the judgement he handed down.

    Using technology to hide the message that would have normally been visible probably isn't the smartest move though.

    Ha, that's hilarious. How petty can you get?

    Once you've scrolled to it, it stays on the screen but even if i zoom down the textsize the notification doesn't appear until i scroll.

    Apple. Think childishly.
