    Australian Judge Wants Apple to Provide iPad Sales Impact to Consider Samsung Ban


    According to a report from Bloomberg, the Australian Court Judge in the ongoing Apple vs. Samsung legal battle has indicated that she wants U.S. and UK sales figures from Apple to provide hard evidence that sales from the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has had a negative impact on iPad sales. From the beginning, one of the primary arguments from Apple was that because of the “remarkable similarity of the Samsung product” it will steal sales from the iPad in Australia. Samsung's lawyer, Neil Murray has countered that “People want an Android product, so they will buy an Android product. This is not impacting the sales of Apple.”

    Samsung even went as far as to ask the court to force this disclosure from Apple. The Australian Federal Court Judge, Justice Annabelle Bennet, denied this request, but did make it clear to Apple, “Unless Apple puts on evidence showing the impact in the U.S. or U.K., I can’t draw any positive assumptions." For now, while the court case is pending, sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 have been put on hold in Australia.

    In an interesting side-note,
    In the U.S., Samsung is arguing that Apple stole the design for its iPad from the Stanley Kubrick 1969 film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
    That's pretty funny, and makes me want to re-watch my copy of that classic Si-fi film. Only in America...

    There was actually an article on some website a while back where the writer shows pictures of a tablet and how someone from Apple had some kind of connection to the guy that made it. (Either co-worker in the same company, or something) And weird how the overall design isn't off that much (save for screen size because this was maybe mid-90's and rounded corners). So you could probably make an even stronger case for them stealing it from that guy.
