Apple seeks Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban in U.S.

Apple seeks Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban in U.S. Apple looks for another import ban.
The iPad-maker benefited on Tuesday then the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit found that a judge in a California district court was in error when he ruled that Apple failed to show that it had a case. The appeals court ruled that the case be sent back to the district court for review.

The decision involves a single patent which Apple claims Samsung violated in the design of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Apple has now filed a motion for a new injunction against the tablet, hoping to get it pulled from shelves in U.S. stores. It already forced Samsung to make some design changes to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany, where it sells a "10.1N" revision of the device.

Apple has had some success against the makers of Android smartphones and tablets. It has accused Samsung in particular of "slavishly cloning" the iPhone and iPad in its Galaxy line of smartphones and tablet PCs.

Pot calling the kettle black if you ask me. Or maybe a better example would be the Egyptians running like hell to the patent office first to file their designs on pyramids before the Mayans do.

Problem is, there are only so many ways you can make or paint a small box that acts as your computer before you start splitting hairs as to whether somebody copied your work.

Kind of like taking a classroom built for 20 kids, but cram 40 kids in it. Then only give them boxes of those stupid 8 colors of crayons to choose from. After which you tell them to draw nothing but boxes & expect them to not copy off one another.

Oh, and the penalty is they'll for copying is to be taken from the class to live in another country away from their parents.

Apple needs to relax & take a couple of those colonoscopy prep kits.

Looks like majority of web correspondents need to go back to school to re-learn fundamentals of English and bone of on their vocabulary WITH dictionary meaning.

There is a big difference in the meanings of "copy" and "cloning".

Those in glass houses... or did you not take a liberal arts class? Sorry, that was an indication that 'higher' learning was to have also been met.

Cloning, by the way, is taking one cell & creating the entire exact organism out of that DNA strand. Applying Java scripting jargon, mapping of HDDs, theorems of clones being the ones to do the copying process are mute as they don't apply to the PHYSICAL world. Thus your statement is null.

Apples's little play with words is a cute ruse in order to baffle the court with bullshit in hopes of winning a case; nothing more. We all know the judicial system no longer strives for who is right, but who can afford ($$$) to win. Double speak & semantics are slung around in those halls like tomatoes during La Tomatina (look it up, you're the self professed pedagogue).

How many other smug bastards do you know that sit around bragging about $100 billion sitting in the bank doing literally nothing & how they aren't going to do help or do anything with it either?

I've used the ipad & a Galaxy & you know what? Despite my bias, the ipad doesn't operate to the quality of the Galaxy. Period. And it doesn't look, operate or smell anything like the ipad, so their 'clone' claim can take a few $100 bills & use them as wadding for the cannon ball colon blow they need to clear their heads.

I'm beginning to think the DoJ needs to reexamine their books & see if it isn't the lawsuit winnings that's really making Apple all their money rather than unit sales, because if 'they' are supposedly the industry standard why the hell aren't they selling more devices, per capita (don't give me the recent number crap either)? Because it should be WAY higher than it is & their performance should be FAR outstanding than what it is if they're Soooo grand that they're being copied (not cloned, nobody stole their DNA) that much...

Please... They're the fat kid in Ethiopia & they saw another kid with a crust of bread and they simply won't stop stomping their pudgy feet until they get that food out of their mouth as well.
