Remains of the Day: Crime and punishment
- — 08 August, 2012 23:52
A new piece of evidence in the Samsung-Apple trial is a doozy, one Apple employee prevents a kidnapping, and Apple's latest iPad ad is a return to form and function. The remainders for Wednesday, August 8, 2012 are destined for great things.
Apple has gotten the court to admit a 132-page document as evidence in its trial against Samsung. The document, by Samsung's product engineering team, evaluates both phones, and concludes that Samsung needs to make its phones work more like the iPhone. Samsung, for its part, insists that this was simply a routine analysis and that you should totally see their reports on LG's washer/dryers.
A Louisville, Kentucky Apple Store employee apparently helped stop a kidnapping, according to police. The kidnapped woman, who was forced by her abductor to visit an Apple Store, was able to alert one of the workers to her situation; they, in turn informed store security, who called the police. The employee then helped a customer make a Keynote presentation.
While Apple may have dropped its Genius campaign for the Mac like a smoking hot laptop, the company's sticking to a tried-and-true formula for its iPad marketing, letting the product speak for itself. What? No spot with a customer explaining how a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is basically an iPad?
