It isn't a "fact", Xerox and Apple agreed to let Apple in, in exchange for stock. Nothing was stolen.
Nothing was stolen in the legal sense, but when you consider the fact that Apple likes to say that they invented everything under the sun related to personal electronics, one can understand why people use the term.

Apple didn't invent as much stuff as they claim, most of their success comes from repackaging existing products and passing them off as their own. And while all companies do this to some extent, only Apple makes a big deal of how amazingly clever they are.

Knockoff? Outside of the fact that they are rectangular in shape, these products are nothing alike.

Finally a judge with a working brain! This is a hilariously perfect outcome for a dirty company that does nothing but run around patent trolling.
If only judges in the US were more like this. I honestly cannot comprehend why anyone in 2012 will pay $700+ for a "flagship" phone with a 3.5" screen...

It is, but it present an marketing opportunity for Apple as well, if they play it right, they can portray android tabs as 'legally uncool' in a funny way ;)

Apple was destroyed because of their own mismanagement and ala bad competitive agreeements with other companies that didn't hold the same interest, I.e. MS. Apple will continue because the mobile market is all they have left, and their shift to mobile to beat / "not compete" with the desktop depends on it in their eyes. I would expect more of this nonsense. Apple can retail their hardware however they choose, but consumers are ALWAYS going to go for the cheaper products if they can be just as good. Especially since consumers don't care to pay 2000%+ Markup on parts they could buy cheaper if they chose their own parts and get better quality, faster parts in the process. Oh gee? Is that really a decision?

Lol, you're calling Galaxy tabs knockoffs?

Tell that to those chinese manufacturers who really carbon copy apple designs, and yet apple does nothing against them, why? because they know those tablets are not real competition.

Now, Samsung OTOH, is a threat. That's why apple keeps whining and whining
Another case of guest trolling, first of all 'they' are koreans, not chinese. And Samsung's sales speak for themselves.
You are an *****. Read what the guess said again and apologies if you are half the man you make out to be.


Fool...

To the involve parties in the post just above me:

This is a guest troll (what I quoted).
