    Oh the op seems to indicate there was an injunction of some sort by the courts...it's not like samsung just volunteered to stop sales unless I'm understanding it wrong...

    Apple may be going "sue crazy" but the fact that these judges are ruling favorably towards them shows that maybe they actually DO have legit reasons for these lawsuits. But I know some people here just blow that off to Apple having these judges in their back pocket...........

    Yeah, the judges wouldn't grant an injunction like this if they didn't think there might be something there. But I guess the conspiracy theories sound more sexy about corporate bribing and stifling innovation haha

    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.
