quote: You are forgetting, this case is in the Silicon Valley. Apple home turf. The Judge is clearly favoring Apple, and the jurers all live there, so its hometown advantage.What will happen is Apple will likely win, then Samsung will appeal. The higher level appeals court will get to see all of the evidence Koh stopped Samsung from showing and will at least get a fair trial.
quote: One of the jurors already acknowledged that his grandparents held a large amount of Apple stock iirc, and the Judge said that was fine, as he wouldn't DIRECTLY benefit from an Apple victory.
quote: Clearly Samsung borrowed some things from Apple with past products, but it defies common sense to suggest all of Samsung's current product should be banned, given how different it is from Apple both in design and in user interface.

quote: Wop is a pejorative racial slur used primarily, but not exclusively, to refer to people from Italy. It may have originated between 1910 and 1915 in the United States. One commonly accepted etymology is that it stands for "without papers" (abbreviated WOP); according to Merriam-Webster its first known use was in 1908. A different theory is that it originates from an Italian dialect term guappo, meaning swagger, derived from the Spanish term guapo, via dialectical French, meaning ruffian or pimp. This also has roots in the Latin vappa, meaning wine gone flat. This theory holds that the term was brought to the U.S. by early Italian immigrants from the region of Campania, who named those suspected to belonging to the Guapparia "Guappi", in a similar fashion Sicilian people used the term "Mafiosi". Widely used in Chicago where most immigrants from Campania settled, it was confused by non-Italian people to indicate Italians in general, like the word "paesano". This slur was used by Welsh Assembly Member Alun Cairns on a live broadcast from Radio Cymru on Friday 13 June 2008, when he referred to the Italian Euro 2008 football team as "greasy wops". As a consequence, he resigned from office.

quote: Consider how big Apple will be in two years time after it doubles again in size, consider how large a cash pile Apple will have even if it just keeps adding to it at the rate is has done over the last few years and then consider what a serial disrupter such as Apple could do in the next few years with 200 billion dollars in cash and a loyal customer base of nearly a billion users. What an awesome machine Steve Jobs crafted.
