quote: Succession is the single most unamerican thing you could possibly do.
quote: And that explains an unremarked but curious fact. While the American founding fathers were in conscious reaction against England, they unconsciously echoed its political culture. With the constitution cementing that in place, it means that American politics today is closer to British politics at the time the Americans rebelled than British politics today, and Obama resembles George III more than David Cameron (politically rather than personally, that is). He is both head of state and chief executive, and does not need, or indeed now have, a congressional majority. Like the king, he has to barter with the legislature, using cajolery, bribery or appeals to loyalty (the last not much use with the present house).The resemblance goes even further. Congress is more like parliament under George III than under George VI. The House of Lords may be absurd, but it is not more absurd than the Senate. Wyoming, with its 570,000 inhabitants, sends two senators to this bizarre body, and so does California, with 40 million. Even worse, since the 17th amendment of 1913, senators have been elected by popular vote. Until then, they had been chosen by state legislatures, as is still true elsewhere.

quote: Lastly for this category, Apple proposes to add the Jelly Bean operating system to its claims. The Jelly Bean operating system is the new version of the Google Android system that is used on all Samsung mobile devices, including those named by Apple in this suit. The Jelly Bean operating system was first released in July 2012.As the moving party, Apple bears the burden of showing that it “acted with diligence in promptly moving to amend when new evidence is revealed.” Apple fails to do so. Apple merely alleges in one paragraph of its October 5 motion that the Jelly Bean was released in July 2012, and inclusion of the system “will not increase the number of claims asserted or introduce any new infringement theories.”This is insufficient to show diligence for making a substantial change to the infringement contentions.Turning to the question of prejudice, it is problematic that Apple makes no reference in its initial briefing to the infringement theories or patent claims it wishes to charge against Jelly Bean. Samsung would be prejudiced by the lack of specificity in Apple’s proposed amendment because it will not have notice to the claims it must defend against. Moreover, as Samsung correctly noted, such an amendment would be overbroad and may sweep any number of Samsung devices using the Jelly Bean operating system into this suit. The Jelly Bean operating system is used on numerous Samsung devices. Samsung also does not have any design control over the content of Jelly Bean as it is a Google Android product that Samsung itself did not develop. The court will not permit a sweeping amendment that might apply to devices other than those properly tied to Samsung. The court will allow this proposed amendment, but only as to the Jelly Bean product Apple has specified: the Galaxy Nexus.

quote: Samsung, as with the previous suit, filed a counter-claim, alleging the iPad infringed on eight of its oown patents.
