It's actually more than that: $40/device (smartphone)!
I suspect Apple wants to recover lawyer fees, too...

No wonder Samsung prefers to go to trial...

Nice business model: just sue a successful product!
Microsoft makes more off of Android (~$2B) than Windows Phone.
But it doesn't always work: Oracle vs. Google (Java); SCO vs.IBM (Linux)...

In related news:
Who finds the Apple vs. Samsung case boring, there is another coming
And Rockstar's real base of operations continues to be Canada!

Isn't this nice!

To stick with the topic of this thread, I predict this is not going to happen in Canada any time soon...

It looks like they do since they appealed
And so does Apple - wants injunction!

Hey, this fun is going to last forever...

Selling a million phones in two months would be a jackpot for most companies, but not Apple...

Looks like this one is going to come true... with the stock well over $500 (for some time now), Apple has announced a 7 to 1 stock split. So, I'm guessing it should still be under $300 by the time 2015 roles around.
