Double post ahoy!

But, in all seriousness... I'm somewhat happy to see some dropping in these suits. Regardless of who is suing whom, it's exasperating to see every other story coming from these tech companies being "X is suing Y for infringement on Z and seeking to ban the sales of 4 devices!"

Just settle and move on so we can get new gadgets, already.

This keeps getting curiouser and curiouser.

Samsung claims foreman lied about his past to get on Apple v. Samsung jury

Quote:
Juror defends himself to the press; Samsung wants him hauled back into court.

In a remarkable new post-trial motion, Samsung has laid out its strategy to get the $1.05 billion verdict against it kicked out. The boldest maneuver? A straightforward attack on the patent-owning jury foreman.

The Korean company hinted at this tactic in an earlier, redacted brief, but now it's been laid out in full, with more than a dozen exhibits attached showcasing Hogan's allegedly offending public statements. The company's lawyers have clearly had time now to comb through the multiple interviews foreman Velvin Hogan has offered since the trial in order to find the juiciest tidbits.
Quote:
Samsung also suggests that Hogan didn't disclose how pro-patent he was when asked in court whether he had "strong feelings" about the US patent system. The new motion argues that Hogan's silence didn't sync up with his later statements to The Verge that "except for my family, it [jury service] was the high point of my career... you might even say my life," and that he wanted to be satisfied "that this trial was fair, and protected copyrights and intellectual property rights, no matter who they belonged to."

The company actually suggests that Hogan come back for an additional hearing with all the other jurors, because his "conduct during voir dire [jury selection] and jury deliberations must be fully examined." The only solution is a new trial, Samsung argues.

Apple shooting itself in the foot with lawsuit?

Quote:
In Apple's mind, here's how it was all supposed to play out: Samsung loses in court, and customers see a bad-nasty-bad company that steals ideas. Who wants a cheap knock-off, anyway?
Funny thing is, it seems that the Apple v. Samsung trial actually had a very favorable effect on Samsung, because it has been selling GSIII's like hotcakes ever since. In fact, according to a new study by Localytics, sales of the device grew by 16% during the week of the Apple verdict. Ha!

Well since I didn't buy it at least I wouldn't have to run through hell. So I would sell it or trade it for Android or Windows devices.

Makes note of this..... will have to make sure to keep in touch when you win a Mac Air, Iphone(whatever), or Ipad (something or other).

How The iPhone 5 Launch Helped Samsung's Image

Quote:
Samsung has reached its highest consumer perception rating in five years, while Apple's has dropped drastically over the same time period, according to YouGov BrandIndex.
Quote:
After the verdict in a patent dispute between the companies in August, Samsung's score dropped to 3, but since then, the company's score increased to 35 (though it dropped to 30 today). Over the same brief time period, Apple decreased, dropping from 44 to 33, as of the time of writing this post.

Over the period shown in that graph, both companies' numbers have increased.

The thing to take away from this is that this trial and the patent BS has actually been detrimental to Apple and has actually made Samsung a more recognized brand. A prime example of shooting yourself in the foot.

?
At the start of the time period Samsung and Apple were pretty much neck and neck.
At the end of the time period, Samsung and Apple were pretty much neck and neck.
Both companies have higher satisfaction numbers at the end of the period than at the start.
If you drew a best-fit plot through the Apple numbers, the trend would be upwards, not downwards.
I'm not sure how you draw anything from it except that there was serious short-term damage to Samsung, but that the effect wore off very quickly, and now they are back to roughly where they started relative to Apple.

Edit: The article you quote does not attribute Apple's recent decline to anything patent-related, but to
Quote:
...negative feedback about the maps application on the new iPhone 5 and [...] product shortages
