Judge denies Apple request to ban Samsung phones. Well, I guess I get to keep my Nexus and Galaxy SIII phones. The Judge presiding over the Apple Samsung patent litigation has denied Apple an injunction against sales of the Samsung devices that are part of the litigation. Of course, most of us have moved on to newer versions of the Samsung phones, while Apple is fighting a losing battle against innovation in the smart phone space. It is nice to know that the Apple police won't be banging on my door demanding my Samsung devices. Maybe now Apple will get back to making better phones, and leave the litigation alone. Not likely.
