UK judges to Apple: "Not good enough!"

Last week, Apple posted a notice on its UK website which indicated that Samsung didn't copy the iPad when it designed the Galaxy Tab family of tablets. Of course, Apple didn't do this out of the kindness of its heart -- it was ordered to do so by a UK court.
 
In keeping with Apple’s typical demeanor towards its competitors, the notice posted on its website was rather flippant and pointed to how the Samsung tablets weren’t deemed to be as “cool” as the iPad. Apple also pointed out in its notice that it had won judgments against Samsung in both German and U.S. courts.
 
It appears, however, that UK judges weren't amused by Apple's play on words, and called the Cupertino, California-based company's statements "incorrect" and "untrue".
 
According to Bloomberg News, the U.K. Court of Appeal in London has ordered Apple to remove the notice from its website within 24 hours to correct the inaccuracies. It also has to post a new, revised version within 48 hours.
 
“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this,” said a puzzled Judge Robin Jacob. “That is a plain breach of the order.”
 
One of Samsung's lawyers, Henry Carr, piled on by starting that Apple's original notice left the “impression that the U.K. court is out of step with other courts” by mentioning the judgments in Apple's favor by German and U.S. courts.

Apple have entered three moribund markets dominated by piss poor technology and products, music players, smart phones and tablets, and utterly disrupted each with a product that completely changed the dynamics of the market and caused every other company into a mad scramble to catch up and emulate. That's what tech companies should do and should be applauded for doing.


That’s right! And what’s more, Apple “life” has been one of finding a product, adding their own environment, writing all the rules and making life for the customers that opt to follow those rules and work within the boundaries of that environment very nice indeed.

The phobia you so ridiculously claim do champion against is not caused by that. No one hated the Apple of the nineties. Or the Apple of early 00´s.

They hate YOUR apple. The arrogant apple. The “I´ll go thermonuclear on this” apple. The “I´m NEVER wrong” apple.
