Apple told to rewrite 'Samsung did not copy' statement, post it on front page until Dec 14th

Apple might not have liked having to publish a notice stating that Samsung did not copy its design, as the result of a court ruling, but it complied all the same. Or did they? A UK court of appeal has criticized the firm over its choice of wording, considering it slippery enough to warrant a rewrite. The Guardian reports that the acknowledgement posted by Apple was deemed non-compliant with the court's order. Apple has today been told to correct its statement, and re-post it on the front page of its website, with at least an 11-point font (and not as a hidden footer link) within 48 hours. The Cupertino team rebuffed, claiming that it would take at least two weeks to get a fresh rework together, a statement that reportedly caused disbelief from some court officials. So, the clock is ticking, and somewhere a legal team is no doubt engaging in some serious thinking. The new statement must remain on Apple's site until December 14th, plenty of time to catch the attention of eager Christmas shoppers.

^ and now since they screwed around, they're also paying all of Samsung's legal fees for the case.

In other news, a 20% price increase for all chips sold to Apple by Samsung sounds like it will cover at least a decent portion of that billion dollar lawsuit . Never bite the hand that feeds you.

Nope. I have a mac, and an iPhone. No iPods, no sticker on my car. The craziest thing I am thinking to do with an apple device is putting an old Apple TV in my M3 so I don't have to burn discs or anything.

Those glasses are hidious, and I would not be caught dead walking around with them, even if they were white and said iDumbass across the sides.

Won't buy an iTV either, already have a Pioneer Kuro, no reason to downgrade.

For all the greif you guys throw at me, you really have no idea that I am not some idiot hipster with a fetish for apple gear. I like how FCP and FCSX work and my iPhone does what I want it to do... Makes calls, receives messages and has a few things to pass the time when I want to.

Funny part is, I don't brag about it. I don't create threads for every new thing being released under the sun, and I sure as hell don't care what you own. I may offer perspective, or argue a baseless points on here, but that is about as far as it goes.

Too many Windows/Droid fan boys on here to have a rational discussion anyway.
