    There has to be a certain degree of benchmarking each company does of their competitors, which is why the vast majority of cell phones are similar. I have owned a Blackberry, Droid and currently have a Windows phone. I have only used an iPhone a handful of times and find it really similar to the Droid. I have not analyzed every detail of the Samsung phone and compared it against the iPhone, but from the pictures above they look very similar. I am not a fan of either company, but it does look like Samsung took their benchmarking a little too far. Hopefully, this will not fuel the Apple lawyers in finding things to sue other cell phone companies.

    I spoke too soon, "What does the ruling mean for Google and Android? Samsung wasn't able to prove any of Apple's patents invalid, which is the major point that could affect other smartphone industry titans.

    Armed with loads of significant patents now deemed valid in court, Apple could go on to sue other companies -- namely, Android maker Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and its hardware partners.

    Samsung is the largest manufacturer of Android devices, and while the software does vary a bit across manufacturers, it's largely similar. So smartphone makers could be sued for similar software infringements, and Google may have to tweak Android's user interface." (http://money.cnn.com/2012/08/24/tech...html?iid=HP_LN)

    You didn't speak too soon, this type of slippery slope fear mongering will naturally follow, this is why I don't like slippery slopes, because they're used to deter a legitimate action. We have to be careful not to discount the merit of a legitimate case based on the "possible" spinoff cases that may or may not follow.

    Having said that, it is no secret that Steve Jobs vowed to spend every last cent of Apple's billions of dollars to go after Android, after Google allegedly stole the idea from Apple after he had a google ceo sit on his board. Will the new leadership of Apple continue where he left off, or will cooler heads prevail? I'm going to reserve judgement on each case individually as it unfolds.

    yeah, that's a pretty awkward relationship to say the least.

    Because the S3, which hadn't come out yet when the suit was filed, is so superior to another phone that hasn't come out yet, a lawsuit for an amount of money that would not cripple Samsung had to be filed. That must be the secret motive behind this lawsuit.

    How can you definitively say it is better than a phone that hasn't even been announced yet?

    ^^^^ exactly

    and lets top that all off with the reason Apple phones perform well is because they have Samsung components driving them
