Apple U.K. doesn't have to post apology to Samsung... yet

Though a U.K. court recently ordered Apple to post a statement on the web and in papers saying Samsung's Galaxy Tab line didn't copy the iPad design, it seems Apple doesn't have to do that, at least not just yet. According to Jeremy Hodges, reporting for Reuters:

Cupertino, California-based Apple appealed saying it didn’t want to advertise for its rival. The order is stayed until its appeal against the ruling is heard in October.

This follows the judge in the trial saying Samsung's Galaxy Tab "wasn't cool enough" to be confused with an iPad. Though, apparently, some Best Buy shoppers don't have their cool-dar as finely tuned...
