quote: Careful,You'll have the chosen ones bringing down their wrath upon you for such blasphemy.Seriously, Apple fans are getting more and more like Jihadists by the day. Totally deluded and aggressive.
quote: Because nothing says 'stop your 3 billion dollar lawsuit' like returning 3 inexpensive Apple products.
quote: Get off your high horse and stop this misguided attempt at self righteousness. IBM sold computers to Hitler and yet people still buy IBM computers and don't care one bit.
quote: We are the all singing, all dancing crap of the world.... We're the bi-products of a lifestyle obsession.
quote: ...and it's little issues like this that become so completely enthralling. We have no wars to protest, we have issues like returning old products to show our distaste at a lawsuit, of which outcome has no affect on our personal lives. One company wins, one loses, who cares.
quote: You are buying a product period, not the company or what you feel it represents.
quote: Also, IBM sold computers to the Nazis like two generations ago. Boycotting them now for something they did before WWII is not exactly analogous to boycotting Apple now for something they are doing now .
quote: The FC quote I was aiming for was more of "We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives."
quote: I have friends who swore they would never buy another Apple product when stories came out about Apple using slave labor camps (which was BS) and pre-ordered the iPhone 5.
quote: Keep reality in check, these lawsuits do not concern you and will not affect your lives in any way whatsoever.
quote: Its a little rectangle that goes in your pocket.
quote: That's an enormous fine. I sincerely hope the judge does not honor this request. $1 billion is a huge hit but $3 billion could cause serious financial problems for Samsung. Even if Samsung were willfully infringing on patents this amount of money is extremely excessive.Tough to say what Koh will do but if she agrees to do this it will be hard to argue against the idea that she is biased toward Apple or biased against foreign companies (protectionism?).
quote: I sincerely hope the judge does not honor this request.
quote: The request comes due to federal rules regarding "willful" infringement.
