    The judgement didn't say it has to be there without having to scroll the page did it?
    I guess this is the web equivalent of hiding a newspaper apology in the small print of the court circulars section.

    Apple obviously think playing to the crowd is worth pissing off the British courts.

    So basically humiliating the British judiciary because they reckon it'll make them some extra profit. Hopefully the judge can show them that this was a bad idea.

    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.
    Isn't that exactly what they did, but were told it was no good?

    yep

    Nope! They made the mistake of adding the bit about Germany and the US, so were basically saying "We have to put this, but it doesn't count. Not really. Ask Germany, they know!". It's a small difference, granted, but took it past being a bit sarky, given the fact they decided to show the very people that made them put the notice up such disrespect.

    Basically, mentioning any other ruling was a big no-no and completely unnecessary.

    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.
    Pretty pathetic, aye. I hope Apple fanboys see just what kind of company they are supporting with their wallets here. I wonder what the judge has to say about this...

    He had a 64 for a bit, but it seems to have fallen off. Unless that was a totally different Crispy, that would blow my mind.

    They've removed the javascript. No idea if it was at the order of the court.

    All I would say is never assume conspiracy when incompetence is a more likely explanation. It could simply be that the person who put the apology on the website didn't know what they were doing.

    It's not a conspiracy or incompetence it is just Apple being...well, Apple.

    It's Apple being Apple. These large corporations are the same as everyone else. When they're butthurt they go all childish and petty.

    Their behavior during antennagate was similar.

    There's nothing wrong with our phone.
    There's NOTHING wrong with our phone.
    There's nothing wrong with our phone, you're just holding it the wrong way.
    OK, there IS something wrong with our phone but everyone else is equally bad. See, we even made a youtube pages showing that.
    Then they fire the guy who was responsible.

    Apple ordered to pay Samsung's entire UK legal fee since the beginning of the case for failing on several counts to adhere to the website apology ruling.

    They should be forced to pay Samsung a further million for every day the correct apology isn't on the site just for good measure imo.

    I'm sure Samgung are scrambling to find themselves a $1 Billion receipt for their lawyers as we speak.

    $3 billion seems about fair.

    Plenty of other ways to get back at Apple when you're a company that actually makes things:

    They're basically ensuring Apple pay all their costs. I'd like to think that someone at Apple is considering whether it's about time they made their peace with Samsung.

    It's quite amusing because Apple probably thought they were being really clever by removing as much business as they could from Samsung by sourcing from other suppliers, but didn't consider that once they were sourcing only the parts they couldn't buy elsewhere Samsung had nothing to lose and would be free to shaft Apple.

    OTOH I won't be surprised if Samsung follow Apple by becoming over confident and start to fuck up as well.

    They all become over confident. Motorola, SonyEricsson, Nokia, Apple, MS.

    I think it's hard to stay sharp at the top. Hopefully this smartphone battle will lead to the realisation that cockblocking isn't the best way to make money.

    If Samsung hike prices for components up, wouldn't that just give Apple reason to hike hike handset prices in their next iteration of devices next year? Or is there some kind of legislation to prevent that happening?

    Why would Samsung care about that?

    Interesting data and 3Q comparison from Gartner: Samsung the largest smartphone vendor, Nokia on the decline, Apple coming in third with a modest growth in share.

    By the way, Engadget is sinking to new levels with this headline.

    @Folant: To clarify my previous comment - somehow I doubt Apple will decrease their margins as that would be a rather negative indicator for investors, especially considering the company is still growing in the market. Any price increase will just be another part of the usual "Apple tax" which so far has never been an issue.

    Gods, reading through the comments on that engadget piece. Exponential growth... why is it so hard for people to wrap their heads around.
