  • A California judge issued a preliminary injunction yesterday banning Samsung (SSNLF.PK) from making or selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1. The judge said Apple (AAPL) had made a strong case that the Tab's design violates its patents. A trial is set for July 30. In the meantime, analysts are playing it cool and say the injunction is unlikely to have a significant impact on Samsung.  [View news story]
    Ford did the heavy lifting in inventing the automobile - down to factory production, design, etc. Should Ford be suing Rolls Royce for infringing on something that is essentially a box and comes with four wheels?

    Oh, Jesus. I can't believe their argument in the WSJ. It literally is that it looks similar to an iPad - so does every other tablet. I hate this company - I can't believe I got suckered into their products.

    Or is it that Samsung is offering a better product at a lower cost and Apple will do everything to protect their margins including patent trolling?

  • More on Apple: A survey from Mizuho suggests Mac buyers are as loyal as ever. 95% of respondents who only owned Macs indicated their next purchase would be a Mac, and the same went for 70% of respondents owning both Windows and Mac machines. Mizuho is slightly lifting its Mac sales estimates as a result, and is also raising its iPad estimates. iPhone estimates are being lowered for the next 2 quarters after checks indicated slowing demand, but a strong holiday season is forecast.  [View news story]
    I would love to see how much of Apple's sales of iStuff are financed with student loans.
