After hearing trade secrets from both Apple and Samsung throughout the court hearings and waiting forever for the jury to make a decision, the verdict finally came in today. Shockingly swift, the jury leveled Samsung and rewarded Apple with a huge victory: Samsung now owes Apple $1.05 billion in damages. Was it unexpected? What do you think happens next?
It's obviously one battle in a much larger war between the two companies, but having the courts hit so hard, so early must be completely defeating for Samsung. What do you guys think? Is every Android maker scared? Is Apple satisfied? Maybe innovation can come out of these court battles? Hopefully?
