Apple's new apology gets published

Apple wasn't happy at all about being forced by courts in the UK to issue a written apology to Samsung to be ran in major newspapers and on its own website. The apology had to state that Samsung did not copy Apple designs. Apple's "apology" was more the little tongue-in-cheek noting that the Samsung tablet was said to not be "as cool" as the iPad and Apple pointed out that it had won judgments against Samsung in Germany and the US.

The judge overseeing the case in the UK said that Apple's statements were "incorrect" and "untrue." Apple was directed to rewrite the apology and remove the incorrect original notice.

“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this,” said Judge Robin Jacob. “That is a plain breach of the order.”

The rewritten apology is now appearing in publications within the UK. Apple had told courts that it would take up to 14 days revise and publish a new statement, but one the judges in the case refused to believe the claim.

There first draft went something like:

"We (Apple) are sorry that Samsung can't rip us off like the small companies that we rip off."

Agreed. It's still not an apology of any sort. It's just a statement of the facts of the case.
