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.

You guys really care about this don't you? it really matters that a judge in the UK smacked Apple's hand and made them a change something on their web site, something that only people like you will read or care about. Nobody else cares, nobody. I don't care, the millions who buy Apple kit don't care, the millions who don't buy Apple kit also don't care. The only people who care are people like [you] who are desperate to have their cult like Apple phobia validated.

Ignore Tony. He's pissed off because he just found out Microsoft sold 4 million upgrade versions of Windows 8 in the first 3 days, and have already sold tens of millions of copies to corporate customers (according to Ballmer at least). An estimated 400 million PCs are to be sold in 2013.

If Windows 8 is on even half of those PCs, I'm sure we have a flop on our hands ;)
