Following their “victorious” monopoly against Samsung in a Northern California court, Apple has stamped an amended objection with the same court in a separate case — tallying the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note to the list of Samsung products it says infringe its intellectual property.
Apple sought after a ban on the Galaxy S III back in June, but that determination was held owing to a packed court schedule.
In the amended complaint filed, Apple says “infringing Samsung products include the at least 21 new smartphones, media players, and tablets that Samsung has released beginning in August 2011 and continuing through August 2012″
This comes just after analysts announced an escalation on Samsung’s lead over Apple in the two companies’ smartphone sales rivalry.
Apple’s motives seem pretty clear at this point: if Samsung is beating them in sales, try to kick them off the track.
These dirty tactics are so far working for shareholders and the corporation.
Samsung Pays Apple $1.05b in coins:
Is it true Samsung paid the $1 billion in coins? No.
We received a number of emails regarding this and let’s set the record straight, the claim isn’t true as Samsung is not required to pay up until this entire issue is settled – which could take months or possibly years. It’d actually be virtually impossible to gain THAT many coins!
The story was circulated as a joke by an online non-English speaking new website.
Samsung Pays Apple $1 Billion Sending 30 Trucks Full of 5 Cents Coins
This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
The funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best.
