The judge overseeing the Apple-versus-Samsung patent battle has denied Samsung's request to see unannounced Apple products. The judge indicated that while Samsung is entitled to parity, this particular request was overreaching. In part of the judge's court order, however, the judge indicated obliquely that Apple may not get its wish of an immediate injunction barring Samsung from selling certain models in the U.S. Apple sued Samsung in April, alleging that Samsung has blatantly copied its iPhone and iPad products. Samsung countersued.

Adjustments Needed.

I'm not a judge, but I have observed both products. While I do see a resemblance in UI operation and hardware aesthetics, I don't see a "blatant copy". There is a distinct difference between the two. It may not be innovative on Samsung's part, but it is a smart business move.

It is now Apple's turn to capitalize on their own products to remain attractive rather than trying to stay proprietary to one design at a time. That is what seems to be the underlining perception of what is going on here.

If a restaurant wants to stick with one hamburger choice, it shouldn't get mad when the competiton has taken that hamburger and made it more attractive with more choices. I hate using this analogy, but it does cast an example of how Apple is ...
only in usa where you have these patents BS!
look at China, they dont believe in patents BS!,
there is enough money for everybody!
Technically i like samsung and apple its ok, but they both have copy designs if the media want to put it out like that because iphone and samsung touch screen phones and even htc have all copy the design because the design of the phone was already out...
