Apple wot a shit name for starters. Now lets talk about their phone,oh yeh its a samsung. Parts made by samsung assembled in Korea. So how is it an apple iphone. The jurors must all have iphones so its a given that they would rule against samsung. Oh yeh the other fact is they're fucken american. And it's funny how in every other country its been a different outcome. I say fuck iphone lets see you get parts for your phone elsewhere.

Ya the parts are manufactured by Samsung but they were designed and engineered by Apple. And they're assembled in china not Korea. Second of all if apple wanted to find another manufacture for their parts and components they could easily do so. They already have been slowly moving away from Samsung's displays for LGs and sharps. But the thing is no matter what the outcome of these lawsuits are Samsung would never drop apple as a customer. The profits they make from their business is too high to lose. If apple would even consider leaving them for another manufacture Samsung would be on their knees begging them to stay.

hey guys i have something to talk about here. Great Apple won, but remember how BILL GATES also did the same thing to Steve jobs with creating WINDOWS without telling APPLE and copied their idea. Clearly Samsung thought that if Bill dint get into any trouble, we wont face any troubles either. Well hats of to APPLE for winning the case and striking Freaking SAMSUNG COPY CATS. go APPLE :) :) U ROCK the technology industry :)

Rounded edges, it's an apple thing and it makes perfect sense because apples are rounded themselves.

Yeah!!! Apple spent 4 years of hardwork developing the iPhone but Samsung spent only 3 months copied everything. Apple's IP should get protected!

Just a simple question for you boys. Do you even know how many Samsung parts are in our iPhones? Yes I own an iPhone 4. 25% of the parts in the iPhone 4 are made by guess who? Samsung! So going forward what do you think this is going to do to future Apple devices or any device really that relies on Samsung parts? I agree that Apple shouldn't be copied, but come on be serious. If you don't know the difference or can't tell the difference then you are blind. Oh btw I am white and American. Last time I checked the iPhone isn't built in the USA so stop being racist. I'm just tired of people bashing other people without common decency or any facts. Just sheep being sheep on both sides. http://www.ubergizmo.com/2011/08/samsung-behind-25-of-iphone-4-parts/ http://www.slashgear.com/apple-to-spend-11bn-on-samsung-parts-in-2012-claims-exec-13218118/

Listen punk...I dont need your lecture. It doesn't matter how many parts are in the iPhone. Thats the whole purpose Samsung stole their ideas because Apple trusted them with their components. They took advantage of that. No1 cared about samsung besides their Appliances and TV.. if You mention to someone a Tablet or a phone no1 ever heard of of their products b4 When you steal you will get caught and Samsung got caught.Apple sued them not because they needed the $$.they could careless about 1 billion dollars ,they are protecting their inventions and values. I can guaranty it noone will ever copy Apple product anyone..Thats the point they are trying to make,and they prove it

If apple wanted to they could easily switch to another manufacture or supplier that's just as good. They've Already gradually started moving away from Samsung's displays and stated using LG and Sharp. Even though its not hardware its Just like what they're doing with google. They're lowering their dependency from competitors and creating business relationships with new companies. Apple doing this is gonna take billions away from both google and Samsung's profits. Its said google makes 2-3 billion a year from iOS. They make more money from the licensing for iOS than they do from android. Googles just shit outta luck at this point but unless Apple themselves starts finding other suppliers for components I don't see Samsung dropping them as a customer just because of this lawsuit. It's a big part of their business and profits. Even though "Samsung" as a whole is a company they operate under different divisions. Displays, components, chips, appliances, computers, etc. They'd loose 10s of billions of dollars if they did something stupid like that.

Did ya'll even read the last article I posted? Apparently not since you guys are still slobbing on Job's nob! The iPhone wouldn't even have been a reality without Samsung in the beginning you ignorant, racist, hateful human beings. Innovation brings competition, which in turn brings more innovation. If no one chose to compete with Apple then how much would you fan boy's be paying for an iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc. Apple didn't invent the processor, memory, LCD, digitizer, etc. They just put all the parts together with the help of other innovative companies. Go ahead and bash me all you want. I'm typing this on a PC and not a MAC! Oh and Karma is amazing bitchslapU! Apple to spend $11bn on Samsung parts in 2012 claims exec.

I bet you if there was any talks of apple going to another company for certain components they currently get from Samsung. Samsung would be on their knees begging them to stay with them. If that didn't happen already since apple is still buying from them. And you're right Apple didn't "invent" the processor, digitizer,or display but they designed,engineered and helped to innovate or improve them. There's patents to prove they did and are doing so. I'm not some crazy Samsung hater or crazy apple fanboy like some people are. Some just take it to the extreme. Some of the shit people say, from both sides does gets ridiculous at times. I personally don't give two shits what people think or say about me choosing to buy certain Apple products. Same goes with some Samsung products that I've bought or buy. I don't personally hate what Samsung does or the products they makes. Some of their products are pretty sick. As for apple and I will admit some of their products are pricey but at the end of the day I'd choose them over any other company when it comes to certain products.
