...I've been watching this entire situation like a hawk as i own some apple stock and want to stay on top of any major trends. Believe it or not, most of this stuff get's talked about just about every day on the stock planning forums (especially on Reddit, where the subject is a daily source of laughs from the less PC traders on there).
Also, F' off kiddo.

I don't even know why they should bother applying the ban again... We all know by the time they will be able to ban it, the GSIII will already be reaching the end of its life cycle just like the Nexus... Perhaps NOT according to the carriers of course, but certainly according to Samsung's "four high end devices a year" market... The Note 2 will out, the new Nexus will out, and everybody will forget about the GSIII just like they did with the GSII - all said former versions are like 30$ on a data contract now, after not even a year's release. By that time, Google will probably release a new Android version and what we'll learn is that the GSIII is not compatible anyway... No worry, they'll announce the GSIV, all will be well... Every Android user will be happy, even if the GSIV is not compatible neither with that newest hot version of Android.

The life expectancy on these things is ridiculousness.
But really at the end of the day they pretty much all do the same thing.
Email, calls, text, games, voice chat etc...

as an owner of an ipad and samsung gs3, I have to say these patent wars are only going to hurt the consumer. I prefer android over ios overall, but apple makes a better tablet at the moment. the GS3 is such an amazing device that I suggest you check it out before purchasing the iphone5. once GS3 is updated to jelly bean it will include google now which has a slightly better voice search compared to siri. just my dos centavos.

tvs look the same, operate the same...cars look the same, operate the same (with some design changes on the exterior...like samsung v apple). I have never in my life confused an apple product with a samsung product.
My gut tells me apple sans steve jobs are on a downward slope of innovation. they can no longer compete with google/android anymore so they're collecting patents as sort of a pension for their future.
it doesn't matter...buy what you want, enjoy it. they're making money while you spend money (unless you're an app developer)

Looks like some "genius" in the Samsung marketing department screwed up. The SamsungMobileUSA Facebook page asked the question: "If you could only take one electronic device on to a deserted island, what would it be?" ... interesting response:
Looks like everyone wants an iPhone.
Samsung can’t catch a break. Samsung Mobile USA posted the following question on their Facebook page – “If you could only take one electronic device on a deserted island, what would it be?”
They probably figured fans would respond that they would totally take their Galaxy S3 or some other Samsung device that no one cares about. But when you’re on a fantasy island, you probably want the best phone possible, right?
So rather than receiving a mob of responses declaring their desire to never be parted with their Galaxy S3, a lot of people just said that they wanted an iPhone 5. Or an electric boat.
Sorry, Samsung. Maybe people will actually want the S4?

You have ZERO interest in the idea of justice being served, the only justice you want is on the side of anyone taking on Apple, who you've taken a personal stake in attacking, but you do it with such little credibility to your stance. It's really a shame, I'd personally like someone to come here and start one of these "debates" that actually had a clue, it might make for some good arguing and reading. Unfortunately you're certainly not that person...
Speaking of suckers...you talk like a person that walked into an Apple store and couldn't afford to buy the shiny things he wanted so you took the low road of attacking people who can. What a pitiful existence that is. Why are you here? You seem to have such disdain for Apple and all of it's products, the only logical reasoning would be trolling...there's a group of you here, do you all get together and take turns on who's going to start the same repetitive arguments every week?

We need to settle down with the argumentum ad homine and realize that Apple, like all corporations i.e. Google, Samsung etc etc, has a fiduciary responsibility to its shareholders to maximize profits. Not doing so is unlawful.
If we dont like the patent system because it hurts competition.... then we have to change it.
As a shareholder, I want Apple to protect its intellectual property... as they are entitled to under the present law.

Jobs said he would never produce a 7" tablet. Yeah, that will be out by Christmas. Jobs said Android fragmentation will never happen on Apple. Yeah, the 16:9 ip5 just took care of that. Gotta love those pretty black bars and the need for developers to now have to write two sets of code for every app. In more ways than one, Apple is becoming what Jobs never wanted. And why is this happening? The consumers want choice, not a dictatorship.
I'm done with you. You are clearly one of the blind and there is absolutely nothing anyone can say to get you out of that stupid little box you're in.

This is my biggest problem with android. It is a great OS but Google doesn't hold the manufacturers or service providers accountable like Apple does.
-android phones come bogged down with service providers and manufacturers crapware. Tons of it.
-the SGS3 is a flagship phone that is two months old and already doesn't have the latest OS and won't for months.
-manufacturers and service providers abandon phones within months, Samsung is ready to announce the SGS3's replacement before it reaches 6 months old
-they create ways to see if you root your phone so they can void your warranty
The above are major reasons IMO of how IOS blows away Android at the moment. My iPhone doesn't come with a bunch of AT&T crap loaded, I can jailbreak it and as long as I restore it Apple doesn't care, and prior to IOS 5 & 6 Apple gave updates to all of their devices.
I am currently using a SGS3 but am returning it due to the above reasons. The phone is amazing but I will be stuck with outdated software by the end of the year when Samsung is focused on the Note 2 and SGS4.
