Apple Wins Patent Cases Against Samsung, Adds Another $1 Billion To Coffers

Apple won a $1.05 billion court ruling in its patent infringement case against Samsung that began last April. Though the court awarded Apple less than half the damages it had been seeking, the ruling serves as an emphatic reminder to the rest of the wireless industry not to get too close to the look and feel of Apple products.
