The slapping match between electronic giants (and major rivals) Apple and Samsung took another jump upward, with the former filing suit against the latter to execute an import ban. This would take Samsung products off shelves—a major defeat.

It'd be a temporary defeat—only yanking the Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, Droid Charge and Galaxy Tab 10.1 until the patent scuffle between the two companies is resolved—but an enormous one nonetheless. Luckily for Samsung, the complaint won't be heard by the U.S. International Trade Commission until over a year from now. Time to pop some corn! [Bloomberg]
