Apple v. Samsung: Did the jurors actually do their jobs?
Now before I get called out for being a troll I just want to set the records straight, I couldn't care too much either way that this court case went. While I do hold a moral impetus to have wanted things to be in favor of Samsung because I do think design patents around the iPhone and iPad are a bit ridiculous I do feel that Touchwiz 2.0 was a step in the wrong direction. But personal preferences aside I couldn't help but notice that within the first few rulings I noticed a glaring error. Case in point: the Nexus S 4G violating Apple's bounce back patent and not violating the double tap to zoom.
I happen to be a proud owner of a Nexus S and can confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that these rulings are incorrect. The Nexus S uses an orange corona effect when you reach the end of a list. In the link above that was posted before the phone was even released you can see both of these observed not only in the review but in the video. If you must just ctrl f the word orange.
These are trivialities, I know, but they represent a larger problem with the trial which is that the jury overlooked at least one phone and arguably the most apparently different during their deliberations. Given the record time that they came to this ruling I feel like its something that has to be addressed. If they made a mistake so obvious here what else could have been missed during deliberations? So I ask you my friendly Verge commentors, what legal repercussions does this hold for the ruling and does it stand as grounds for a mistrial? Anyone with legal expertise please try and chime in as well.
Update: After looking at some stuff CloudGazer posted I found this video demonstrating that the Nexus S uses the bounce back effect, however it only appears when attempting to scroll a still loading thumbnail of a photo in the Gallery App.
Now I feel like I must give kuddos to anyone who happened to be quick enough to catch this instant as insofar as I can find its literally the only time within the OS that it appears. It is enough to invalidate this post however
