Definitely would be funny if they did pay them in nickels but sadly that story is from a fake news sight known for comedy and memes.

Pay them in Bitcoins, just before the value plummets. Or better yet pay them in these.

Another nail in the coffin of innovation! The jury obviously consisted of Apple fanboys who just want to prevent Samsung's innovation! Samsung did not steal Apple's ideas and concepts, they INNOVATED them. They defined a new meaning for innovation. Like Microsoft before them, when they innovated Windows' features from Apple's operating system.

Again this proves nothing and still does nothing. Samsung still has never paid anything to Apple and likely never will. Samsung and Apple earlier this year signed a deal worth one billion dollars, the same amount as the lawsuit from last year.

These lawsuits by and from each other doesn't do anything to either. They will just work it all out in deals no matter the verdict. Neither has or will ever be affected by any would be jury.

You're right. Apple will keep the courts busy for years arguing against Samsung with Samsung countering with appeals and trying to get the USPTO to strike the patents which are broad in scope. And it's looking like the U.S. Patent Office might agree with Samsung and invalidate Apple key patent in this case.

Seriously? This is still news? Jobs is dead, too bad his ridiculous patents didn't die with him. Oh well, corporations continue to battle over controlling the world.
