I jumped on MacBreak Weekly today, as the show was already in progress, to talk about the Apple versus Samsung verdict, iPhone 5 and iPad mini rumors galore, the latest Java security hole, and Retina Macs with hosts Leo Laporte and Andy Ihnatko, and fellow guest Rich Siegel of Bare Bones software, makers of BBEdit, which I use all day, every day, and my main Mac text editor.

Looks like Apple isn't wasting any time listing the Samsung Android phones they'd like to have banned in the U.S. following their $1 billion win last week. And that's a good thing, because a lot of these phones look so old they're probably not being sold much if at all anymore, so the faster they're not sold, the better... right?
In the matter of Apple's $1 billion verdict over Samsung, we've already had two separate, yet equally important PR statements. Since then, a Samsung executive has said it's their worst case scenario, and Google, not surprisingly, has tried to keep Android well away from the fallout.
Manuel Ilagan, one of the jurors in the landmark U.S. Apple vs. Samsung trial, which resulted in a sweeping $1 billion victory for Apple yesterday, has revealed that they, the jury, knew after the first day that Samsung had wronged Apple.
That's it. We're done. Apple vs. Samsung has been exhausting and now that the jury has had it's say, awarding Apple some $1.05 billion in damages, it's time for you to have yours. We're leaving the comments wide open, handing you the mic, and slowly backing away from the internet for the night.
Did the jury reach the right decision? Did they get it totally wrong? Does copying kill innovation? Does litigation and a patent system gone haywire? Should Samsung have won on some counts as well? Should Apple have lost on their counts too? Or could you really care less at this point?
