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.

Apple was the first to put icons on a grid?
Apple was the first to have a touch screen?
Apple was the first to have "apps" on a phone?

...and the newly acquired...

Apple was the first to display maps on a touchscreen device?

Wow. Thank you Apple for inventing everything that had already been invented/implemented before hand. I must have had very vivid dreams of fictional companies like Palm, HTC, Microsoft, Garmin, TomTom, etc. I guess my creative side just runs wild sometimes ;)

I bet you're related to Tony.

Can it be an insult when it's true?

I wouldn't even give him the benefit of being related. That would insinuate that Apple actually has more "fans" than it legitimately does.

My money is on this being another account that Tony runs. Only an admin could check the IP's to be sure...but I'd take that bet.

It's much easier to create a dozen "fake" fans of apple who are the work of one astroturfer--rather than find a dozen legitimately zealous apple fans who are passionate enough to do the same job for free. Kind of like how North Korea likes to hire Chinese to cheer for its soccer team--since the N. Koreans aren't allowed to attend the games.

Guess the "Kim Jong Il - Steve Jobs" personality cult thing wasn't the only comparison of Apple and North Korea. They also prefer a lockdown, draconian style of leadership to match the personality cult. That's at least 3 similarities I see.
