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.

People only "care" when a ruling goes positive for Apple. Then it's highly relevant. When it goes against Apple, it's nothing, not an issue.

Features are only important when Apple implements them. When others copy from Apple its bad. When Apple copies from others (which is most of their product lines) its the "right feature at the right time"

Apple, Apple, where for art thou Apple? What light through yonder window breaks... It is Apple. Apple Apple Apple. And then Apple Apple.

At any rate, 'Care' or 'Don't Care', it will not have any impact on the sales of Apple products. So in that case, if there is no impact, who the f_uck cares!
