Apple aims to add Galaxy Note 10.1, Android 4.1 to US suit

updated 04:55 pm EST, Tue November 6, 2012

Case against Samsung only going to trial next year

Acting via a court in San Jose, California, Apple has filed to add the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Android 4.1 to a list of infringing products in a US lawsuit against Samsung, Bloomberg reports. The case is notably distinct from one Apple won in August, in which a jury awarded the company damages of $1.05 billion. Instead, the suit involved today is only scheduled to go to trial in 2014.

Apple and Samsung have each regularly added new devices to their lawsuits against each other. In October, for instance, Samsung added the iPhone 5 to the current case, shortly after the device's September launch. Android 4.1, better known as Jelly Bean, was released in July; the Galaxy Note 10.1 arrived in the US in August.

    What a damn waste of time, energy and money on Apple's part. The courts throw out Apple's lawsuits as fast as they file them. Apple hasn't gotten a freaking thing out those lawsuits and I don't believe Apple will get a cent out of that billion dollars they supposedly won from Samsung. I'd have to see the bank transfer to believe it. Apple has no allies when it comes to lawsuits. I think that Apple should use that legal spending on something that might help them regain some dignity as a company. Apple seems to be trying to swim upstream and is constantly losing ground.

    Apple took MS' (tablet) idea and reinvented it. So from there the iPad is not an original idea. Granted. But then after Apple created a successful, derivative product, most everyone, Samsung, Google, Barnes and Noble et al... Said, 'hey, here's a winning formula, let's copy it'. Look at pre-iPad offerings. Look at post-iPad products. And be "grown up" about it. Same with "iPhone" clones.

    Everyone is copyng Apple's idea. Because they know it generates cash.

    Apple is just trying to protect what they claim to be "their idea".

    So, is there any winning solution?

    Walmart packaging looks incredibly similar to "name brands". Walmart brand ketchup looks incredibly like Heinz ketchup. Indeed, I once bought Walmart Baby Shampoo because, on appearance, thought it was Johnson & Johnson.

    So be grown up about this. Offer a responsble adult respomse and opinion. Flames, stay home. Stay offline. If you can't offer a responsble adult response, your opinion is worthless.

    The point of sharing is about learning.
