    I was slightly inaccurate with my remarks about the iPad, Kay, but I wanted to write a post, not a novel.

    I see you grabbed my underlying meaning, however. It is the popularization that everyone would like to emulate. If it comes to it, RIM did a far better job, and way earlier, with the hardware of the Playbook and completely messed up the overall experience by limiting the software.

    I'm sure there are very nice judges [/sarcasm] but in this case, I think this unknown twerp wants to go down in legal history as the man who put the mighty Apple in their place. In other words, this was a judgment based on a personal agenda, not the truth, legal or moral. Of course, who am I to judge (cough). I'm just spouting opinion, but, hey, that's what the thread asks for.

    Um Apple = a $650B company so lawyers are like a drop of water from an ocean.

    Time will tell Microsoft thought they were to big to ever get put down, but look at what has happened to them. I like my iPad2 and will give some real thought to getting a iPad4. But Samsung and some others have sure started bringing out a lot of very nice tablets, and at some really good prices. Law suits only in rich Attorneys, seldom do they have any real effect on the total out come of how and what a company does.

    Apple need not worry about this statement anyway. Everyone I know in the UK only visits the Apple Store not the home page unless they have Apple as there homepage.

    Agreed. But market capitalisation is only what investors determine a company is worth.

    Apple shares have now lost more than $100 from their all-time peak of $705.07, hit on Sept. 21. It's current value is about $556 billion.

    Still, Apple remains the most valuable publicly traded company in the world.

    In the device arena, the most important metrics are sales, revenue and profit margins

    What did apple actually accuse Samsung of copying? If its the shape of the tablet then it's hard to get on board with that. You can't really patent a shape, can you? I dunno. The whole thing seems a tad overblown. I enjoy my iPad but sometimes apple does appear to be a bully about some things. I appreciate competition and choices. It keeps all companies on their toes and ultimately benefits us consumers. Apple isn't hurting and neither is Samsung for that matter. I just don't want to see silly lawsuits and things like that. Let every company play in the tablet arena. Apple will just have to keep on innovating and staying ahead. That's better than handing the market to them through lawsuits and patent squabbles.

    You can patent the appearance of an item, it's called a design patent.
