    Here's the skinny:

    After deliberation, the jury finds:

    Samsung is guilty of violating patent 5,946,647 (the autocorrect text entry patent) with all devices named in this suit.
    Samsung was found not guilty of violating the 6.847.959 patent (Apple's Spotlight search)
    Samsung was found not guilty of violating the 7,761,414 patent (data synchronization patent)
    Samsung was found guilty of violating the 8,046,721 patent (slide-to-unlock) on some devices named, but not all

    The jury ruled that Samsung owe Apple $119.6 million in damages.

    The court also ruled that Apple had infringed on some of Samsung’s patents and awarded the company $$158,400 in damages.

    2 Billion is a lot. Lol. These companies will still have more money than the U.S. Government at the end of the day.

    I do think it's silly that you can patent slide to unlock. Should be a ubiquitous thing.

    But yeah, seems like a more reasonable amount of money compared to 2 billon. I think apple just threw that out there to see if they can get it.

    Anyway, I don't think we should get worked up about multimillion dollar companies fighting it out in court and being fined what is essentially pocket change to them.

    Um, quite a bit actualy. really, they've been Introducing new things to their phones since the S3 or earlier. I think a lot if not all these patent claims were from the GS 2.

    It's not silly at all. Have you ever read the stories of how the iPhone came to be? They spent a ton of time trying to figure out an innovative and simple way to unlock the touch screen. That's their invention, and not anybody else's. It's their patent because they invented it.
