Submission + - Samsung responds to Appes FUD over public releases. ( 1

An anonymous reader writes: "Yesterday a big deal was made, both in court and in the press, about Samsung releasing excluded information publicly. The impression was given that Judge Koh was spewing flames, and Samsung was violating judges orders. There was even highly slanted article on slashdot about the incident.

Today Samsung responded. It turns out the information was already available to the public and Samsung was responding to journalists questions about the information.

Perhaps next time the Apple fanboys will wait until all sides respond before they give their Perry-Mason-wannabe unuinformed opinions. Maybe wait till a solid legal site like groklaw, not cnet, reports the story.

Use a moderate amount of rubbing alcohol to help get the water out AFTER you flush with copious amounts of deionized (as opposed to distilled) water. As a chemist, I have cleaned up sensitive electronics that have had potentially corrosive vapors condense on them by washing thoroughly with high purity water. The important thing is to remove the ions that will be in the dirty water. Then, yes, try to remove the clean water as much as possible in a reasonable time. Rubbing alcohol will kill the surface tension of the water, along with the mold, and help the droplets of water flow out. Unfortunately, all available rubbing alcohol contains a large amount of water, so you will still have to wait until that evaporates. But deionized water should not cause any further damage to the electronics. But make sure the label of the water bottle indicates deionization - distilled water can actually still contain a fair amount of ionic material because it is done so poorly. But some "Distilled Water" will indicate "purified by deionization" in the fine print.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
