    Yeah I drove a co-worker nuts, when I told him the "4" didn't mean 4G. BAWHAHAHA!

    my boss argued with me about that.

    I wager many will think the iPhone 5 stands for 5G.

    "Look, I get SUPER DUPER fast speeds, more than my 4G iPhone!!"

    Word to ya mother.

    The big thing will be if this is actually hardware patents involved. That would prevent Apple from shipping the phones as is with plans to enable LTE through firmware updates and would be most lovely.

    I just don't see a ban on the IPhone in the US, especially at the hands of a foreign competitor, under any scenario. It would have to be a grossly egregious violation.

    I also think this true, sadly. But with Sammy winning cases in more technologically advanced countries, I hope the US courts wake up.

    yes this would be completely different than the stuff that sammy has to change on the offending phones because hardware can't be updated after it has been shipped (obviously). If these do turn out to be hardware patents then I could very easily see a ban, at least until the hardware changes or (more likely) that Samsung comes up with a huge price tag to allow Apple to use them.

    Apple will then go back to the EDGE network, and will subsequently convince its userbase that in fact their phones are so fast that their minds simply cannot keep up with it.

    just read an article on Yahoo that says Crapple has asked the courts to add 4 additional products to the list of banned products. One of them is the S3. Those dirty cotton rock-suckers!

    The problem is that if Samsung gets an injunction against Apple, then you will see a lot of pressure from Congress to have the ITC injunction thrown out. The politicians will look at it as a South Korean company going after an American company and will start playing the patriotism card.

    This is why Congress is proposing to change the patent laws so that "industry standard" patents cannot be used against American companies and the patent holders would be essentially forced to sign license agreements that would allow American companies to use those patents.
