    Ok, so as I read more, I think what happened was Apple filed the injunction, and then Samsung volunteered to stop before the courts ruled on the injunction.

    But I don't get why Samsung would then say we're going to do it anyway now according to the Endgadget article. I'm sure if they do that, Apple will just renew the injunction....what a waste of time and money haha

    Apple can't make a better product, so instead the just block the sales of the other products, nice.

    to me suing over form factor is no different that one car manufacturer suing another because their models look similar (which many of them do across the board). Yet they don't do this.

    It's ridiculous.

    -1 Please take the time and do some reading on this. No court has ruled on Apple's filing. Nor has any court ruled on Samsung's counter.

    :) This reminds me of the suit that McDonald's brought in Scotland a few years back against a 100+ year old Scottish restaurant named McDonald's. The restaurant is owned by a high ranking member of the Clan McDonald. I'll let you guess who won. Hint, it was not burger boy....

    yes, that is why the hybrid cars (Prius, Insight, Volt) all are sorta similar, as they've got the design for the lowest drag.

    Apple is angry...they're losing customers...they're gonna sue. Aren't they suing htc as well?

    The ipad2 has a drop down notification like android has, new iphone will have it.

    I'm surprised none of these companies are suing back

    They're definitely not losing customers, they just reported their highest earnings ever and are now the wealthiest company on earth. They have more money than the US govt technically does.

    To be or not to be........................wait what was the question? This signature has been Tapatalk approved.

    If by losing customers you mean gaining more customers then they ever have in their history with no sign if slowing down, then yes they are hemorrhaging customers.
