So Apple Is ‘Losing’ the Samsung Lawsuit

Mike Elgan, for Cult of Mac:

The lawsuit appears to be far from over. But already, it’s clear that Samsung is “winning.” Why? Because it’s a contest between a company that cares deeply about its secrets — even small ones — and a company that doesn’t care as much. So the discovery and revelation is punishing Apple.

The first “discovery” he lists is the 7-inch iPad. Yes, the same 7-inch iPad that the New York Times, Bloomberg, and the Wall Street Journal have reported is coming next month. Shocking. Next he says that the lawsuit has revealed that Apple looks at their competition and listens to their customers. Of course Apple looks at their competition and listens to their customers. Come on.

Everyone one of his points is either obvious or irrelevant (78% of iPhone owners use a case… so what?). He ends with what I think is perhaps the most interesting news to come out of the Apple v. Samsung lawsuit: Apple didn’t build a car.
