Submission + - UK Judge: Galaxy Tab Not Cool enough Infringe iPad (

judgecorp writes: "A British high Court judge has ruled that Samung's Galaxy Tabs could not be confused with the Apple iPad because they lack the “understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design”. And hard though it is to imagine a British judge saying these words, he added: "they are not as cool". Samsung has welcomed the ruling (possibly through gritted teeth). Apple is expected to appeal, though it is not clear whether its representatives will argue that the Galaxy Tab actually is quite cool."
