Apple Takes Samsung Fight to the Land Down Under
Apple has expanded its patent battle with Samsung to Australia, where it sought and received an injunction barring Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab device.

If Apple loses its patent battle with Samsung in Australia, it agreed to pay Samsung unspecified damages. An initial trial date is set for August 29. The two companies have locked horns over smartphone and tablet designs and patents. Apple has accused Samsung of blatantly copying its products for financial gain.

A Re-post On Some of My Issues.
The prevailing common denominator has Apple calculated as the high equation in these wireless industry suits. Since Apple's inception into the wireless industry, litigation has skyrocketed. Nokia, Samsung, HTC, Motorola, blackberry etc. Is it really possible these companies didn't have anything of relevance to do with the industry prior to Apple's entrance into it? These companies didn't patent anything during these years? It was just all our imagination that cellphones were used before the iPhone? Seems rather odd in my presumption to believe this.
But one thing is crystal clear and has been documented and even video recorded on camera:
In the true exact words of Steve Jobs himself:
Costs passed on to consumers
Some of these companies may have some sort of insurance for this but ultimately legal costs keep escalating and eventually puts pressure on company profits, which in turn forces companies to raise prices.
Good going Apple!!
hey stupid! yes, you apple!
