As the Apple vs Samsung trial continues, another document surfaces, submitted into evidence by Apple in its ongoing effort to prove the company copied its smartphone and tablet designs…

Apple succeeded today in getting the entirety of an internal Samsung report comparing the iPhone to its own Galaxy S admitted into evidence. First reported by reported by All Things D, the 132-page document paints a picture of Samsung recognizing superior elements of Apple’s user experience and changes Samsung needed to make in order to improve its own products. In most cases, these "Directions for Improvement" amounted to adding features or details where Apple’s interface was better, and subtracting those things that made Samsung's interface appear complex in comparison. While it's easy now to pick out areas where both iOS and Android engineers borrow from one another for new ideas about functionality, the document shows just how finely Samsung aimed to emulate Apple's user experience in 2010.

you know, I really don't care who supposedly stole what ... why don't Apple just sue 7bil people for picking their nose, I'm sure Apple have a patent on that some where.

Oddly, it looks like someone has indeed patented a nose picker... :

All is not as it seems, facts emerge, the wind shifts....

Trial by Jury - Fair?

So just what did Apple invent?

That article makes a number of good points. It doesn't seem at all right to have a jury assess the position when specialist knowledge is required regarding patents.
