Samsung Loses Apple Patent Case

Just my humble opinion

I think the verdict in the trial is bad for several reasons. Mostly because this gives Apple justification to continue these lawsuits. We needed a verdict that honestly flat out denied both parties any claims to money. Basically we needed to shut Apple up.

That didn't happen.

Back in 2007, Apple did the tech world a solid and released an amazing device, but it was a device far from original. They basically took the time to take a lot of great ideas that had been tried previous and fine tuned them to the user experience and in that created something where the sum was far greater than the total of the parts.

In a nutshell they vastly improved the quality of what was out there.

Now granted maybe Samsung did try to make their phones similar to Apple's but not so much that anyone would confuse the two devices side by side.

What Samsung did do though was threaten Apple....Samsung took Apple's concept, and ran with it, and quickly outpaced them in turns of hardware, and end user cost (overall software experience I still give to Apple)

In a world without Samsung, HTC, or Motorola, we'd still have the $300-$400 dollar iPhones that are just now getting the ability to send picture messages. Because one thing Apple is known for, is holding back features and hardware improves in order to make their customers buy yet another device a year later. With no one there pushing them, they're given free reign to do whatever they want.

This is just lose all around for us consumers.
