Are you honestly suggesting that Apple had Samsung make their iPhones and then Samsung took those designs and made identical copies on their own?

Samsung wants to let Apple know that they will not be bullied. They are able to fight them back.
I would wager that 1/3 of a meter is "1/3 of a meter"? How much is 1/5 of a foot?
You seem to be a blithering idiot, as he already covered your arguments. Let me use simpler words for you.
The SAE system and dollar bills both cost more money than the alternatives. At some point, the cost of replacing both of those things will far exceed the cost of switching to a more modern system.
So he made a device where you can hug a cock over the internet... now he wants to allow you to taste a cock? Count me out.
I came here (and actually signed in for the first time in years) to say exactly that. Thank you.
The part of the public that buys their product will be very willing to continue buying their product. Because it's the evil Samsung stealing from their beloved Apple. A court decision will not change their mind, any more than it would change our minds if Apple won.
It's actually a real word, that's been in use for many decades.
Yes, I agree that it shouldn't have been used for Avatar. But its use predated the movie.
What part of ethanol fueled didn't you understand?
A ban from the Apple store means that you cannot install the application on your phone. Period, end of story. (Unless you choose to root your phone)
A ban from the Google store means that you must download the application elsewhere.
I take it that you go to a community college? That's the only explanation I would see for such a massive ego mixed with such stupidity. I see many of your kind interviewing for work. I have yet to be desperate enough to hire any.
For your future reference, Computer Science students learn about operating systems and filesystems so that we can learn how best to use them. College kids learn how to code (probably better than University students), but they get an incomplete education. Learning how to create a dialog box does not make you a proper programmer. It makes you able to do little more than data entry style "programming". If you want to learn how to talk to the hardware, I think it's pretty clear that you need a University education.
It's been about 6 years since I graduated. But my University had a couple of Solaris labs for the CS students. They later switched to Linux, as it was cheaper to maintain x86 computers than Sun Workstations. Every CS student was required to submit programs that worked in Unix.
The greater campus Network was all Windows (save for the file shares and email servers), but you could connect to it via WiFi, if you registered your device's MAC address with IT. IT would require you to install a firewall and antivirus software before accepting your MAC. I showed up with my Linux laptop, and the requirements were waived, and they simply took my MAC address.
I thought it was a brilliant system. It's easily defeatable by anyone with a bit of tech skill, but people with tech skill aren't going to cause the problems they were trying to solve by MAC filtering the network.
So no, there was nothing of the sort on my University network. Linux was a first class citizen.
Not to mention that I just checked, and the REAL SNES9x is still on the marketplace. This is clearly a license violation.
I am actually from Canada. Yes, I order my beer by the pint. I know my weight in pounds, not kilos. I know my height in feet/inches, rather than meters. However, all those measurements are extremely specific. Almost to the point of being a traditional name for something, rather than an objective measurement. I have no real frame of measurement when something is 3000 yards away, or even 3 miles. And I just find ounces/fahrenheit to be confusing, which is why I mentioned them specifically, as I've never used them in my day to day life. They are as alien as cartwheels or leagues.
It's frustrating for us though when you air your documentaries in Canada, and are quoting ounces, Fahrenheit, yards, etc, since I honestly have no clue what you are talking about. I think it would be a nice gesture for us if you could at least subtitle the imperial measurements in metric or use both, if you must.
