    Apple Awarded $1 Billion in Samsung Patent Case

    Apparently the "let's stick the phones right next to each other" argument ended up being a pretty good one to jurors. I know, I know, doom, gloom, the end of innovation as we know it. But they do look damn similar.

    Like they wouldn't appeal if it was less?
    You must mean - Hey, 'appeal court', how are you doing?!

    I can understand patents on functionality, but as far as I have read about this case, they also based it on the "looks" (rectangles with round corners!!).

    Again, I urge the current patent holders of BRAUN to sue Apple for this:

    I think it was more about the touchsceen functionality than the shape (or at least that appears to be what they won on).

    Includes:
    > start screen with rectangular icons
    > scrolling through pages by swiping left or right
    > zooming in and out by opening or closing two fingers on the screen

    Some things should not be patented. They are just too basic in my opinion.
