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.

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.
