We have all been reading and keeping up on the case of Apple and Samsung. Apple is claiming that Samsung has "infringed" on their patents, surprise, surprise.

A Federal Court Justice by the name of Annabelle Bennett who has been in charge of "overseeing" the trial, called the proceedings "ridiculous!" She then asked lawyers:

"Why on earth are these proceedings going ahead?"

Go Judge Bennett! These patent infringements are just ridiculous, and it would seem that Apple enjoys making a spectacle out of themselves by suing just about everyone saying they infringed on one of their patents. Judge Bennett even made a humorous suggestion that Apple and Samsung be sent to mediation. The two companies have actually been ordered to mediation, but by the end of the session there was "no clear agreement."

After this all started, Samsung has since counter sued Apple claiming that Apple "refused to engage in negotiations" over its 3G patents. However, Stephen Burley, Apple's lawyer disputes this statement claiming that Apple was willing and ready to work with the company, but Samsung refused.

The trial between the two companies began today and will run through the week. I can only hope that in the light of Judge Bennett's opinions that she put Apple and their "patent infringements" where they belong, which is thrown out.

I am a gamer, but not hardcore, and my son is close behind. We have two gaming consoles with more to come with one at least always being in use. I graduated with an associate degree as a Computer Support Specialist. It was a tough road, but I made it, and am ever so thankful. I love technology and playing with the vast variety of "toys" I can get my hands on, but my biggest love is Android and learning its ways. Anything new I wanna learn about it and will tell anyone I know I support Google 100%, at which point I have acquired the nickname "The Google Girl."
