    Australian Judge Wants Apple to Provide iPad Sales Impact to Consider Samsung Ban


    According to a report from Bloomberg, the Australian Court Judge in the ongoing Apple vs. Samsung legal battle has indicated that she wants U.S. and UK sales figures from Apple to provide hard evidence that sales from the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has had a negative impact on iPad sales. From the beginning, one of the primary arguments from Apple was that because of the “remarkable similarity of the Samsung product” it will steal sales from the iPad in Australia. Samsung's lawyer, Neil Murray has countered that “People want an Android product, so they will buy an Android product. This is not impacting the sales of Apple.”

    Samsung even went as far as to ask the court to force this disclosure from Apple. The Australian Federal Court Judge, Justice Annabelle Bennet, denied this request, but did make it clear to Apple, “Unless Apple puts on evidence showing the impact in the U.S. or U.K., I can’t draw any positive assumptions." For now, while the court case is pending, sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 have been put on hold in Australia.

    In an interesting side-note,
    In the U.S., Samsung is arguing that Apple stole the design for its iPad from the Stanley Kubrick 1969 film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
    That's pretty funny, and makes me want to re-watch my copy of that classic Sci-fi film. Only in America...

    Good. It's about time these judges actually tried to understand what's going on instead of making judgments on ignorant appearance. Tablets look like tablets. You can only make them look so different from each other.

    I like how apple is saying, consumers are too stupid to know the difference between an ipad and a Galaxy tab because they look so much alike. Look at laptops, EVERY laptop is identical to every other laptop in appearance. Doesn't mean if I walk into a store wanting an HP laptop I'm gonna walk out with an Acer because they look so much alike I can't tell the difference. People will buy what they want to buy. Looking alike or not, isn't going to change the fact that some people will want something other than an ipad.

    I was at best buy the other day looking at tablets, the apple guy walks over and says our ipads are over here. I turned and looked at him and said, and that's why I'm over here. He walked off, didn't say another word.

    Thats just it. Apple wants to be the only tablet. its the only way they will survive. They know that just like Android phones, the tablet market will start to boom for Android tablets and they will see their numbers halt and start to decline.

    Heh, I would have replied with something like "Why are they over there, the kids toy section is way over there pointing off in the distance somewhere".

    seriously how many of these threads do we need? The same crap gets said in them everytime. Why not just make 1 official "Apple" thread and anytime a new news story is brought up just put it in that. These threads only lead to everyone saying the same hateful things about Apple, they really don't do any good being posted in this forum anyway. It's beyond old and tiring.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    It's the news OTRebel, and we are here to report it. In fact, we purposefully hold back on posting every story that comes up regarding the Apple lawsuits. Our staff has skipped many of them. Regardless, today is a slow news day, and this seemed relevant as it was a change that we hadn't seen. Furthermore, I thought it would humorous for folks to hear about the U.S. case using the "2001: A Space Odyssey" defense. lol

    If you find these reports old and tiring, you don't have to respond, or even read them. Some folks may want to hear about this stuff though...

    I understand you are just doing your job but literally the same hateful comments are made in response to these threads every single time. That is what's old and tiring. The jokes have become highly unoriginal.

    I like these threads. I want to be kept up to date on this. As much as I love Apple products, I don't like the way they are conducting their business.

    +1 I like Apple's products to an extent. I have a iPod Touch Gen 3 but I wouldn't get an iPhone no matter the technical advancements, IMO. The whole situation regarding Apple's childish antics are pretty humorous and I don't agree with what they're doing. Every company that's in the same business as another is going to have similar products no matter what. Most of the time it's to better a product or to MAKE a better product suiting a persons needs and wants. This whole Apple lawsuit is ridiculous and stupid.
