Apple Reportedly Seeking US Samsung Device Sales Ban

Apple is looking to turn the tables on Samsung, and will reportedly ask a U.S. appeals court to ban certain Samsung devices that were found in violation of Apple patents. Apple just recently praised Obama for vetoing the ban placed on Apple products for a similar reason.

The company will ask a U.S. appeals court tomorrow to block sales of Samsung models a California jury found violated patents for the iPhone’s look and features. Later, a U.S. trade agency is expected to say if it will halt some Samsung imports based on other Apple patent-infringement claims.

Models like the Galaxy S2, the Droid Charge and tablets like the Galaxy Tab could be affected if Apple where to win this appeal for a ban. Most of these products are no longer sold so it would most likely not hurt Samsung in the long run.

South Korea criticized the Obama Administration over the decision to veto the import ban on certain Apple devices. Any move to ban South Korea's Samsung device would surely hurt even more.

Apple initially won $1 billion in damages although the Judge later voided almost half of that amount due to an error.

F...k apple ,seriously what Sony guys like about apple !? Selling you shit and still I guys love that shit more than what the true technology is. Get educated and grow up. Apple was good when Steve jobs was alive but I can see how apple is going down the hill with crapy Managment and lack of plans for the future product.

You're an idiot. I'm typing on my iPhone 4S which has a smaller screen than the iPad and all I can say, over and over again, is that you sir are an idiot. Run that through your spell-check and smoke it.

You don't know technology or who has more, if anything sounds like shit and is made of shit, it is slamsuck, fuck them since gal-lag-gay shit 1! Whatever apple made they stole. They took maps mobile, earbuds then earpods, siri, the store with the apps (ibooks, itunes, app store), even their craplets look like ipad which came first. What gets in more accidents depending on size and material, spamsunk galagagy shit 1-4 because it is made of fucking plastic and no new material by each generation and the same shitty 4.1 bandroid software, but iphone which anyone likes has app style, connects to their own macs, aluminum like any other products that survive ANYTHING when in an accident, was the first one to come, updates to newer ios yearly since we have ios 7 now. The only thing spamskunk has is shit that you pay more on size, repair, and replacements, even the galagay dopes 2 is too big to be a phone or more likely a phablet. Not one have they won anything compared to apple. What kind of awards did they win? Also their smart pee v, the hand sensor doesn't even work more than 50% of the time. I go slow enough to move my hand around it for better control, didn't work. Now do you think apple sucks now? That's what I thought wannabe!
