Both Apple and Samsung rested their cases in the U.S. legal conflict between the two parties last week, with the closing statements scheduled for Tuesday, August 21. Once that last ritual of a trial is completed, the jury will start deliberating on the claims brought by each party against the other, and we should have a verdict in the coming days/weeks. That seems like the more likely outcome of this patent dispute, as the parties failed, during a third court-ordered meeting, to reach a settlement, or even to “narrow the scope of the claims at issue in the lawsuit in…

The task at hand is rather difficult for Samsung especially considering the kind of internal Samsung documents that Apple brought before the jury, including a memo and a very detailed comparison between the iPhone 3GS and the first Galaxy S prototypes. Both items revealed…

Where did it all go wrong? Apple and Samsung were once the perfect couple, but it seems theirs was a marriage of convenience. A long, drawn-out, and deeply bitter divorce has seen the gloves come off, as these two tech giants trade blows in courtrooms across the globe. The patent war has been going on for so long now that you’d be forgiven for feeling a bit bored with the whole thing. But wait a minute, I beg your indulgence, have you considered what would happen if one of them actually emerged victorious? Let’s speculate wildly. In the beginning In…
