    It appears so. Samsung's argument was that the case is over US sales, and thus since Samsung doesn't sell the international versions in the USA, they should be excluded from the trial.

    My friend showed me this video from Mitsubishi demonstrating a multi-touch display in 2001 called Diamond Touch. Here's the best part... they said they demonstrated that technology in the prescence of an Apple employee YEARS before the iPhone came out.

    I'll try and post the video when I get a chance.

    Saw that video on Youtube. Yeah it's funny how everytime some company shows something to Apple it winds up being used by Apple - and even worse somehow patented by Apple and then other companies are sued for supposedly stealing *their* technology.

    I've had a personal saying for a long time and that saying is "The single worst trait of humanity is hypocrisy" and I still believe that. Apple is literally one of the biggest hypocritical companies on the face of the Earth.

    Yes, a lot of companies copy, I don't doubt at all that Samsung took some of the iPhone interface/design aesthetics and incorporated them into their devices, of course they did. Pretty much all companies do. But, Apple is the hypocritical child that stomps it's feet and starts screaming bloody murder when it happens to them.... with the ideas and tech they already copied/stole!!!!

    I'm shocked Apple is not suing all manufacturers on the basis of creating a phone period, every phone I've owned based on my experience somehow creates an iPhone illusion ....no matter what phone I've owned going back to BB Storm someone has always asked ....is that an iPhone...what the farvfegnugen...
