Samsung Will Appeal Apple Lawsuit Decision & Product Ban

By August 28, 2012

In case you haven’t heard, Apple was awarded a major victory in its ongoing quest to screw anybody that comes close to messing with the legacy of its beloved iPhone.  Samsung just happened to be the first one to get their ticket punched in what is sure to be the first of many court decisions dealing with multiple manufacturers.

Apple and Samsung aren’t the only mobile phone makers in a head to head quest to dominate the lucrative smartphone market, just the two that happen to be making headlines this week. Apple sues Samsung, Samsung Sues Apple, Google/Motorola sue Apple, and on and on. As some have said throughout life, “Payback’s a bitch!”

Think what you may, believe if you must that this jury based decision will deal a decisive blow to Samsung’s quest to topple Apple’s shaky at best, reign as smartphone king. You’d be making that judgment based on flawed logic.

Although this case may cost Samsung monetarily, you cannot put a price on the press they’ve benefited from during this trial. I’ve forgotten more about Apple’s Phone than the average user will ever know. I’ve never been given an iPhone or an Android Phone. As a loyal iPhone user and Android user since day one, and a honest, unbiased ombudsman, I’m here to tell you that the threat the Android operating system poses against Apple is paramount to their need to win multiple patent lawsuits. They make one phone that will now and apparently forever battle against an army of Android phone manufacturers that one day will most certainly topple them as the worlds smartphone king. They do not need Apple’s patents to build a superior smartphone. Apple needs to win lawsuits as long as they can to postpone the inevitability that one day the world will realize they are not the best.

Now Apple wants eight Samsung products banned from the market.


Steve Jobs left us all with a legacy of greatness, and nobody will ever minimize the legacy he left Apple, but as long as Apple continues to sell the public inferior technology at top dollar prices, it’s only a matter of time before before the massive army of Android manufacturers do what it takes to burn Apple to the ground. That’s a fact, pure and simple. Google may be down for now, but they will never be out.
