    Apple Revises Lawsuit Against Samsung and Gets Nastier; Doubles Offending Devices


    The drama of Apple vs. Samsung just got a bit nastier from Apple. The company recently revised their lawsuit, and pretty much doubled the number of devices and patents they claim have been infringed by Samsung. Their amended lawsuit has an even harsher tone than their last one, stating that Samsung produced "products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success." The devices now named in the lawsuit have gone from 14 to 28, and include the Samsung DROID Charge, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Prevail, Galaxy S, Gravity, Infuse 4G, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, Sidekick, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Galaxy S II & others. Furthermore, Apple now claims that Samsung violated 8 utility patents, (increased from 5), and 5 design patents, (increased from 3).

    On Friday, Samsung was scheduled to turn over some of the devices named in the suit, including the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 among others. There is still no word yet on whether the judge has ruled on Samsung's counter-suit, requesting that they have access to future Apple products like the iPhone 5 and iPad 3. It seems that Apple, rather than backing down from Samsung, has instead decided to fight even harder. As always, we will keep you informed of any new developments.

    Yeah... I think they're afraid that iPhone 5 won't save them.

    There will always be the die hard Apple fans. They more upset that android has multiple manufacturer's and it gets cranked out faster. Then they need to decide if they will sell their phones on other carriers networks because once they opened the door to VZW customers there was new competition. No more $800 phones. Why you think they unlocked their phones?

    You gotta be frakkin' kidding me. Is THIS what hard-fought freedom gets you? The right to frivolous lawsuits and butt-ugly turtlenecks?

    Of course it is. After all, what good is a system of law without a glut of lawyers making us miserable, poor, and themselves rich?
