It’s all over the web that Samsung went public with evidence that was excluded from the trial. Evidence that might show how Apple designs were derived from Sony designs. There was certainly a race to once again be the “Window(s) to the World” in some type of computing / communications electronics device(s). And maybe, just maybe, once again someone left the door open.
(Samsung /) Bill Gates: Get real, would ya? You and I are both like guys who had this rich neighbor – Xerox – who left the door open all the time. And you go sneakin’ in to steal a TV set. Only when you get there, you realize that I got there first. I got the loot, Steve! And you’re yellin’? “That’s not fair. I wanted to try to steal it first.” You’re too late.
Steve Jobs: We’re better than you are! We have better stuff.
Bill Gates: You don’t get it, Steve. That doesn’t matter!
Picaso once said, … Steve Jobs once said … Good artists copy, great artists steal.
We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas…
