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.

Brilliant - again

I actually read the Guardian everyday and completely missed the ad, it must be the most boring layout Apple has ever produced. Perfect.

90% of people who read this will be Ultra Fandroids and Apple haters and the only effect it will have is to raise their blood pressure.

As I said - brilliant.

You are a Guardian reader, the liberal paper that fights for the underdog. Yet you are happy for companies to flout the law, so long as the company is named Apple. You cheer the abuse of market position at any price, so long as your beloved Apple is protected.

But then a Guardian reader, who doesn't think, is the worst kind. Probably even worse than a Daily Mail reader.

And boy do you not think! You sure do need Apple products!

You're crazier (and more clueless) than I thought!

You know it has just hit me what we're dealing with here. There is no logic or sense that you will ever see.

I visit a fair number of sites and forums, but you are by far unique. I think a number of readers would agree.

You are a fanatic, blind. Anything that happens or is said will be morphed into something that is positive for Apple in your eyes.

A state completely devoid of independent thought. I would not wish this terrible blindness to anyone in the world.

I try to discuss and share views, so that I can also see and understand what I do not. I will never get that from any of your commentary. It is predictable, monotonous and biased.

Ultimately no matter what Apple does, without maintaining mass market appeal, they will fail. If they ever abuse their position, then that will be their own undoing.

I wait and watch as do you.

You applaud a company for cheating the legal system. You are applauding immorality in business.

Yes, Apple is surely brilliant. Everything they do is brilliant, from the brilliant products to the brilliant politics to the brilliant passive aggressive court ordered statements to the brilliant purple haze on outdoor photos.

We get it Tony, you think Apple is brilliant. Too bad the rest of us know better.

Courts! We don't need no stinkin courts.

However, if Apple wins...

Tony Swash: "Just prevails."

Finally, I must agree > douchbag.
