    Good to see Apple not winning something. Go on Samsung!

    I wonder: What the hell else should a tablet look like? It's gonna have a screen, a border around it, as little buttons as possible and a logo on the back. There really isn't much space to move around, especially given that adding anything in would just make it clunkier.

    Also, *insert rant about intellectual property being a paradox*.

    I don't care for either. For all I care Apple's iPad lacks flash. That is why everyone is jumping on them. Gosh, I love technology!

    Tablets are for Javafaggots, but anything that hurts Apple I approve.

    This is actually pretty funny, as being uncool is a good thing.

    I actually bought a 10.1 tablet just because apple was suing to stop it. Its a pretty good buy and an excellent tablet.

    But it's NOT AS COOL. It's COOLNESS FACTOR is at least 45% less than that of the iPad. Jesus PerpetuallyAroused it's like you know nothing about computers.

    Like seriously, what's the fucking deal with those "unusual details on the back"? Those details need to know that they aren't welcome on the backs of tablets. The back of tablets is a conservative traditional community and only the usual things are tolerated there (like an Apple logo, I'd imagine).

    I remember when tablets were drawing devices.

    You mean when they ran an operating system that wasn't built for touch control at all? Those sure were the days.

    I have a drawing tablet and it's cooler than anything apple could ever produce. Because it's actually useful. Back when tablet didn't mean hipster tech candy.

    They might have required a stylus or optical mouse but at least they could run real software.

    Desktop software is not designed to run on a tablet or phone.

    This is easily explained.
    Hipsters use Apple products.
    Hipsters like things that are considered to be "uncool" or "backwards" or "ironic".
    So Samsung paid the judges to say that their products are even more uncool to boost their sales and compete.

    Brilliant.
