Despite what follows in this post, it isn’t a rant on Apple, it’s a mere ‘neener neener, your the loser you wheeer!’. (<– too immature?)
Things just keep getting better and the year’s still in its first quarter. Well Apple decided to take up a ‘Wilful Infringement’ case ages ago after Samsung had somewhat unintelligently did a bit of copy cat work on Apple but thanks yo the Asian beauty that is Judge Lucy Koh Samsung will not suffer any more financial squeeze. Read it all here and make what sense you will of it. She says;
“To the extent that Apple does address lost downstream sales, Apple discusses only Samsung’s gains and makes no attempt to identify any specific losses Apple has suffered,” U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh wrote in her ruling”
This makes me happy for 2 reasons. First, Apple didn’t win. By now you must have realised my somewhat ‘unbiased’ distaste for all things of the ‘i’ category. If you haven’t please click on here, here and here (exits are to your left and at the far end of the browser). Second, it means Samsung won’t have an excuse to lay out their new line of flexible OLED screens which I’ve pissed and crapped my pants amongst other bodily fluids, in anticipation.
Also just for the hell of it watch this too;
How awesome are handheld devices about to become!? I can’t freaking wait! I really can’t! I mean all these patent wars are an honest waste of time in my opinion and that of this post. It’s diverting their creative expertise away from what’s important; creating ‘Pew-Pew’ laser pistols , or hover boards (because driving and guns are too mainstream yo).
To cut this story short, I really would like to take her out on a date and serenade her in ways the law would label ‘barely legal’. If I don’t make any post in a while…my significant other has hospitalized me.
It is with great pleasure and excitement, gloating and pettiness that I write this relatively short piece. If you’re a regular here, you should remember my previous write-up on the ‘Samsung-Apple Patent Wars‘ (<— if not clickity-click!) on how Samsung got a bit of revenge on Apple since they lost.
Well, not to my surprise, the UK ruled in favour of Samsung on the Samsung Tab. I mean did you really expect America to rule against Apple? Apple is an American company. Americans are nothing if not patriotic and Sir Patriot demands that they protect Apple vigorously irrespective of how silly they are most times. The ruling showed that Samsung had not indeed infringed on copyright with their Galaxy Tab. Click the HERE for the whole schpill!
Remember this is a piece on me being petty. So the most amazing part of the ruling is that Apple have been forced to apologise to Samsung; a feat which proved to hard for the arrogant techies at Apple. In a statement on their website they ‘apologise’ to Samsung without really doing so. Basically saying ”Well we accept your ruling, but you’re obviously wrong’. Sounds a bit Like Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory no? As it was an unsatisfactory and poorly-written, barely noticeable they were told to amend it. To make matters worse and even more annoying, after a few days they’ve refused to do so. Thank goodness ‘Cap’n Englund‘ came around and corrected their devious ways! (see how) In a nutshell, Apple have to grovel (not really, that’s just how I imagine it) and embarrass themselves( in my opinion) the world over by advertising the apology on mainstream magazines. They did so in the issue f The Guardian and it was just lame. Barely worth it. I can’t help but feel let down by Apple really. The one thing they could have done right by me and they mess it up. (-_-) – not cool Apple, not cool.
To be honest, I’m not really surprised all that fame can get to one’s head quite easily. One day the bad Apple will fall off the tree. I just hope no one’s there to catch it.
